    Marvelous Marvin was the best switch-hitter ever. Don't get it twisted. Crawford's great. He can fight from both sides very well. However, ESPN is gassing this dude too much. Marvelous Marvin Hagler was a straight savage from both sides orthodox or southpaw. Crawford can get a little wreckless sometimes. He breaks down a little technically as the fight goes on. Lastly, he often drops his hands coming out of exchanges & you can follow him out and time him with big shots. Watch the Benavidez fight. Mean Machine also timed him coming out & dropped him. Hagler had no technical flaws fighting off either side.

    Is this boxers like mayweather, crwford,spence or other title holders can fight outside america like pacman did? To avoid speculations that theres no bias from judges?

    Crawford ignorant. And you can see what kind of personality he has, someone who cannot take criticism. All the top PBC fighters at 147 would wash 🧼 Crawford! Oh and his team declined the fight with porter.

    This is all acting by the way. Terrence Crawford is a great fighter. However, he works for the same people who controlled Pacquiao's fighting career. He gives the same responses and stalls just like Pacquiao did and pretended as if he's been trying to fight top fighters. He's 33, he could be 100-0 and still not be a champion like fighter until he beats other real contending champs. Mayweather's portfolio shows that he's beaten these caliber of champions. Max Kellerman knows this. He knows who Crawford works for. Max has seen this situation plenty of times. Which is why he's coming at him with this energy. He knows they all have a job to do. Crawford is a robot period. He's being controlled. Watch the Stephen A Smith interview w/ him and you'll open your eyes to this illusion. It's going to be Mayweather vs Pacquiao for a big cash grab. Watch..

    Crawford: I switch to orthodox.

    Crawford: Oh really? so I switch to southpaw.

      Obviously you have not seen many of his fights then. Coz he fights about 85% more on a southpaw stance

      Evar Florendo i meant to say he starts getting tagged a lot when he goes southpaw and to me it looks like he’s much better fighting orthodox

    Bud is my guy, but I don't like the tone he takes with Max. Max has a unique take on boxing based on his history with the sport.

    • Ebenezer Ademola
      Ebenezer Ademola 20 days ago

      @Kevin L. At this point you're just making excuses. Horn had Manny pressed up against the ropes taking shots several times during the fight. Bud didnt even let Horn get close to that, and forced Horn to hesitate before going on the offensive.
      Like I said, Bud embarrassed him. Manny had a lot more trouble in his fight, that's undeniable.

    • Kevin L.
      Kevin L. 20 days ago

      @Ebenezer Ademola if you cant admit that the referees played a significant role in what occurred in both fights then you're being biased.

    • Ebenezer Ademola
      Ebenezer Ademola 20 days ago

      @Kevin L. If you can't tell the difference in how Pac and Bud handled Horn, then you're being biased. Bud handled Horn every round before forcing a stoppage, Pac didn't.

    • Kevin L.
      Kevin L. 20 days ago

      @Ebenezer Ademola round 9 should have been a TKO stoppage for Pac v Horn

    • Ebenezer Ademola
      Ebenezer Ademola 21 day ago

      @Kevin L. Pac was getting smothered by Horn, what are you talking about? Meanwhile, Bud literally embarrassed him. Bud unified a division, and nobody in PBC wants to fight him at 147, for good reason.

    Bud just collecting checks on easy fights. His legacy may not be what he wants especially if the big names fight amongst themselves. He doesn't have top notch fighter on his resume (Gamboa Ain't it). He may be great but his resume has nothing but McDonald's & KFC jobs on it 😂

  • Alex Bolongaita

    Why is nobody clamoring for a specifically Crawford vs Thurman fight even before the fight with Pacquiao happened? They are about the same age and skill level but with different style of course.

    • Black Bull
      Black Bull 23 days ago

      Thurman won't fight him. Thurman won't fight Spence either. He wants a Manny rematch and if he doesn't get that, he'll probably retire. He fights for the money at this stage. Spence don't want no smoke with Crawford. They won't cross the street. Spence was talking about Danny Garcia last week. smh

    Haha this guy crawford is so proud of himself! What happened to your fight with kavaliasuskas?! You got knocked down dude! You had a hard time with him. So many times you got rocked and you denied that you got knocked down! It’s crystal clear you went down! You’re so full of yourself. You’re just a good boxer never should be considered great at all. Fight a great fighter and that will be your downfall. Overrated and overhyped fighter along with lomachicken

    I don't think any fighter in that division is in a hurry to see porter he act like a mini Joe Frazier.I think he'll get better after that fight with spence. I didn't think i would see another fighter from Ohio tough like Aaron Pryor or Ray Mancini , That young man just keeps coming at you he's not the fighter to try 2 or 3 times if you do. Say what the Great Muhammad Ali said after his third fight with Joe Frazier, if i go to war i want Shawn Porter by my side.
