    Judas C clearly ducking Josh T

    I was actually looking forward to Josh taking his zero :facepalm:

    Josh bashed up a prime 26-1-1 Porter in the gym when he was 7-0 rank novice for goodness sake. Gave him a proper Scottish shellacking. But a 37-0 Terry who I not only picked to beat Porter but stop him gets dominated by a past prime Porter who has a billion miles on the clock and people are acting like he's the reincarnation of Ray Robinson :facepalm:

    A prime Porter with a 12 round tank and a lot less miles on his odometer would've clearly beaten him

    And Ugas took a British battering and got dropped on his ass during those same sessions too

    'There are reports of the light-welterweight seriously troubling former world champion Shawn Porter in sparring'

    ''I really caught a glimpse of what was to come when Josh was out with me in Las Vegas ahead of my fight with Leo Santa Cruz in 2017. Josh was sparring former world welterweight champion Shawn Porter, ahead of only his eighth fight, and I remember thinking, 'This guy is unreal' because he bossed the spar.''

    ''When Josh Taylor used to spar the gym came to a standstill.. unbelievable stuff! I remember seeing him as a pretty green novice professional sparring Shawn Porter in Shawn Porter's gym and punching his head in''

    Agree about the Kenny Porter stoppage, his post fight comments verged on the bizarre aswell. I rate Crawford highly, I think Spence is overrated by some margin. Long may it have been anticipated but one thing for sure is that Crawford v Spence is no Leonard v Hearns!

    How can you duck somebody who is not even in your division...pure nonsense.
    Also you're suddenly Arum's biggest fan now that Crawford is leaving him lol...Judas?
    Arum is a douche of the highest order, and to leave him is the best Crawford could have done.

    Too late for that now. Should have left years ago.

    Hell Manny left him too late and he still had a brief career renaissance.

    I agree with you first time. Spence will beat Crawford if the fight happens.

    Would you like Crawford more if he wore a strapon to the post fight interviews? Asking for a friend..

    I know you will think I am biased because EJ is my guy but I see him beating Bud. Yesterday validated it further for me.
