    1. Crawford
    2. Thurman
    3. Spence
    Just my opinion however. When Crawford switches into southpaw, steps back and throws that lead right hand check hook he hurts you. I’m not saying he’s better than the other two, just a tad more power in both hands.

    As for who has more skill, we may never know because of politics.

    I hate to say it but I think it’s probably spence Thurman is a shadow of his former self since his shoulder injury and Crawford has cumulative power imo

    I agree with this. Thurman's injury took the 'thud' outta his punch. Jury will be out on Spence for the time being. WW can be Crawford's if he gets the chance/goes for it.

    I'm a bit out of the loop, but I'd say Thurman, spence, crawford. I feel like crawford is the more accurate puncher with the better timing, spence has the better accumulative power, and Thurman has the best raw power. It really depends how you define power. Im calling it by raw power but there's so much more to it than that. No answer is really wrong

    I went for Spence but you've made a good argument.

    I'm probably basing my view on that accumulation of damage on Kell Brook a few years back rather than any one shot demonstrating raw power.

    Tough one to call as each have a different style of fighting.

    Thurman probably had it but seems to have lost a bit since injury. Although im really only going of the Lopez fight for that as Manny has a great chin as does Garcia and Porter so even though he hasnt stopped his last four opponents three of them have been stopped once between them in the last decade.

    Spence is a hard puncher too but at world level he has really stopped Brook on an injury (caused by him tbf) but couldnt get Porter or Garcia out of there.

    Crawford hasnt really fought top level competition at WW sonhard to say, hes an accumulative puncher but seems to get respect early.

    Id imagine all of them are foing the distance in the biggest fights they have. Top WWs seems to have decent pop and decent chins all round tbf.

    Spence
    Thurman
    Crawford

    Crawford is a better puncher P4P, he's just 10lbs smaller than the other two.

    Crawford retains his power longer, making him more dangerous late, but he's low output.
    Thurman's is sharper and can catch people off guard, but it fades quickly. Making him dangerous early.
    Spence's is thudding and a little more concussive. His high volume style doles out the most punishment.

    But none of them are one punch knockout artists. However, as far as one punch power goes, I think I'd rather take one shot from Spence and Bud before I took one from Thurman.

    Interesting. You think Mikey's still standing at the end if he fought Thurman or Crawford?

    I wouldn't be so sure about that. He rehydrated to 158 at 140. At 147, he must be 162-166 ish.

    I think Thurman is probably done. Crawford could out box Spence but he won't get to fight him till he's past his best.
