    All these guys talking about Crawford's got this great resume need to stop. I get it, you're selling the Khan fight, but Alvarez, Loma, Golovkin, and Spence all have better resumes. Crawford passes the eye test. He's legit, but ESPN is feeding some nonsense with this resume crap. My boy Ennis is coming though.

    I didnt see the fight but to throw in the towel before even taking the 5. I will be amazed if kahn gets another fight.

    Did i miss something or did pac finally pick an opponent?

    Loma haha loved that he said he would take that fight for free

    That was Khan's last big money fight. I went and looked at how long ago the Peterson fight was. 2011. The guy has been on a downward trajectory since 2011, and he's still getting PPV fights. I'd say the reason was always because he has elite athletic ability, is always entertaining, and fights with heart. After this one, he's done though.

    Can't wait. You're not going to like this, but I'm going to say Thurman by KO. Pac can definitely clip him early, and if he trains hard, has a good chance to take him out later.

    Theres a real possibility of that for sure. Id have to say though that the longer the fight goes the less thurman has a chance. Like most pac fights his opponent just doesnt see a style like his if at all. Thurms last opponent kept pressure on him but hardly moved other than forwards. Where as pac has faced punchers with thurmans power.
    Im a fan of thurmans as well but after his last fight, its hard for me to see him beating pac. Unless his last fight, he was still not a 100% but given the time off he took its hard for me to give him that

    Seriously think pac still wants spence but decided he needed this fight first.

    Rest in peace again heavyweight division.

    Only boxing could screw this up. Good job to Haymon and everybody else who found a way to get Anthony Joshua knocked out by somebody other than Deontay Wilder.

    That was beautiful. Rigondeaux 38 years old, stands in the pocket for 8 rounds with a 26 year old Mexican fighter, and then blasts him out. Rigondeaux ain't even about that, but he don't care. "I'm gunna let you hit me for 8 rounds, and then smoke you at the end of the fight." The best part was the ringside interview with the other guy's trainer about half way through the fight. Dude had no idea what was going on.

    Still think thurman will win? With how much trash thurmans been talking i wouldnt bet against pac. Usually that makes him more focused.
    I still wont pay 75 for it though.

    Yeah, I'm still rolling with Thurman. Pac's the favorite by a little, but there's enough there for me to pick Thurman. Not going to bet against Pac in this fight, but that's my pick. Not super sure about Thurman stopping him like I said earlier. I think the way the fight's going to go, it's going to be hard for Thurman to land the kind of shots he would need to. The exception there of course would be Pac walking into something, or falling off the cliff before our eyes. Unlikely that Thurman catches him with a perfect shot.

    With that said, Thurman doesn't have a great chin. It's not necessarily a natural thing, it's just that he gets clipped when he's aggressive. Because of that, I don't see them getting into a Horn situation where Thurman is pressuring him around the ring. Well, that and Horn is a dirty, one dimensional fighter, which Thurman is not. That's why I say, I don't think Thurman is going to wear him out, because he's going to be fighting defensively. And whether or not Pac can create angles and break him down will determine the outcome. Pac has to be young in this fight.

    Pernell had his problems in life, but I have to give him his due. One of the best I ever watched.

    Ok, so here's where I'm at. I got Thurman winning by decision, and I think he'll drop Pacquiao at some point in the fight. Probably early. So my score prediction would look something like 114-113 Thurman. If I'm right about how the fight's going to go, and Thurman goes down at any point, he'll probably lose the fight.
