realistically speaking and still be effective based on his frame?
He walked around 170+, so he’s got the frame to move up another division. He is getting old though, so 2 divisions is unrealistic at this point in his career.
Where he is now.
154 for his style of fighting at his age.
160 max, doubt he would dominate but could win belts
I think he can go up to 175 and beat Bivol.
Then we all wake up from our fantasies and realize the Crawford Spence fight still isn't signed. So they can't even claim to be the best at their current weight division let alone dream about moving up and facing elites at higher weights.
Diff between crawford and canelo is crawford can out speed out think out box bigger guys. Canelo can not.
Canelo is one dimensional.
Can you believe if canelo actually won 1 round he gets a draw. Lmao
I think crawford can beat anybody up to 160
To me if spence is smart he pulls crawford to 154.
Effective and being a serious player at the weight are 2 different things.
I think 147 is his ceiling for dominant displays. He would definitely be highly competitive at 154 but wouldn't be anywhere being "the man". 160 no chance.
Crawford is a very very good fighter. But I don’t think he’s that special.
People don’t realize how hard it is to win 4 weight classes by beating top elite fighter on the weight.
As great as Mayweather was, at his 4th weight class which is welterweight where he stays the longest, the only fighters that he fought that starts at welterweight and above is Berto, Baldomir and Canelo.. and for me Berto and Baldomir was not a great win.
Now Crawford starts at light weight, his 4th weight class will be Junior middleweight. I don’t think he can run the table with the likes of Jermell, Castano, Tszyu, Lara, Fundora, Madrimov. Maybe win some but definitely not all.
154.............and I say that without hesitation. LW, JWW, WW, JMW. The vast majority of fighters only move up a weight class or two throughout their career, the guys that do more than that are already outliers, the ones that are very successful after doing so are the outliers of outliers.
I'm not sure he'd even be a super successful JMW TBH
Crawford walks around as a CRUISERWEIGHT, so he can fight at 160 if he has the balls to compete without having a massive physical/weight advantage. Same w/ Spence.
