    I had the fight about the way the judges had it. It was close.

    Crawford never seemed like he was in any trouble at any point in the fight to me. Parts where you would expect Porter to impose himself like he has in the past just never seemed to work on Crawford. Crawford was able to tie up Porter without much trouble and seemed the much stronger man in the clinches. Porter is supposed to rough you up on the inside and Crawford was completely unaffected by it. Porter trying to turn Crawford in the corners was laughable and the way the commentators made a big deal about his awful attempts were cringeworthy. Crawford was able to control Porters wild lunges with some pretty basic forearms and cuffs. Porters flurries were completely ineffective. I really don't see what people thought Porter was doing so well at in this fight.

    Even in my book. 4rds a piece one 10-10. Crawford was surging and Porter was breathing from his ass the last 2rds

    I had Porter ahead by a round. Crawford did little the first half of the fight. The fight was Porter pressing, Crawford moving away, tying Porter up, with spurts of sloppy and hesitant flurries from both. Bud was coming on strong though in the 8th and 9th. Stoppage was too quick, very odd.

    5-4 Crawford, same as all three judges, only difference was one judge gave Crawford the 8th, I gave Porter that round as did the other two judges. It was a pretty easy fight to score, relative to other close fights.all the rounds were unanimously scored save the 8th round.

    I had Porter up by a round, but even when Crawford was losing rounds I could sense this undercurrent to the fight where Crawford was simply slowly figuring him out and as the fight wore on he was finding his range and timing better for his counters and it was only a matter of time before he started landing flush and the outcome of the fight would hinge on what would happen when he landed a big counter and if Porter could take it and keep going or it would turn the fight around.

    Had it tied 4-4 a piece with Crawford winning the 8th & comfortably pulling away in the 9th before the 1st knock down.

    I dunno. I thought Crawford was looking VERY uncomfortable and he was clinching a ton. He looked hurt on a few occasions to me.

    Was a 5-4 for either guy type of fight...but i knew crawford would at least drop porter in the later rounds,and i also said to my friend the fight would probably be over if porter went down since crawford is a great finisher
