What did you think of the fight?

Not bad, entertaining for a shutout, but still too one sided to be a great fight. Masterclass from Spence, he controlled the distance, used his jab, his defence was great, and he beat Mikey up, he might be the pound for pound best. Mikey did well, tried his best, was never going to quit, faced an avoided fighter at a higher weight, took Spence 12 for the first time in his career, but he was out classed, beaten up, took some damage, and the size difference was too much, he didn't realise Spence was that good, bad night for him, don't where he goes now. You?

I didn't love the fight, a little bit of a mismatch. The positives that I took from it were that Spence added more to his arsenal, and can box if need be. He was able to use height and reach advantage to benefit him and make it difficult for Mikey to do anything. Something that I've always seen Easter struggle with, he'd be taller then most opponents but could never use his height and reach to help him. Props to Mikey for not quitting and able to go the distance.

For Mikey, I don't know where he should go from here, definitely not stay at 147, but 140 or 135 would be better. I think 135 would be ideal, but not sure who I'd like to see him fight next. Do you think this ruins the Lomachenko fight?

For Spence I'd like to see a Pacquiao, Porter or Danny Garcia fight.

He used his reach well against Mikey, Easter, but nothing like Spence, reach is a great advantage to have in the ring, you can choose to make better use of it if you have been completely neglecting it, but using it as well as Spence did against Mikey, that is something you don't learn overnight, something only a both talented and hard working fighter can do. He tried his best, he was trying to find a way to win throughout, he could have pressed more and thrown more shots, but he intelligent fighters know when they are not good enough and will get countered, and Mikey was looking for an opening.

No I don't, I don't think it helps the fight because it is hard to rank Mikey that highly now, after losing every single round, but he was the underdog, it was Spence good more than Mikey bad and people know that. I think the Lomachencko was unlikely to happen before Spence vs Mikey, because Mikey doesn't work well with Top Rank, there is a reason Bob Arum was trashing Mikey before the fight, they wanted to fight Lomachencko, but the fight didn't happen, so they went and fought Spence because the Garcias new Mikey needed that big win, they took a chance, didn't win, but I think the Lomachencko fight is no more or less likely to happen now than before the fight, because there are still the same promotional issues. I think move down to 135 if he can, but definitely not stay at 147, he doesn't have a lot of options at 135 because the only two champions who are not in the WBSS are either in his own stable or with Top Rank.

So would I, but do any of them want to fight him? I don't blame them, but it seems Porter doesn't believe he beats Spence, don't know about Garcia and Pacquiao, but maybe the same for them. Spence vs Crawford has to happen sooner or later, it is the two best in the world in my opinion, no reason it shouldn't happen this year, Crawford is probably one fight away from when he starts to decline, should decline very slowly, but it would be great to see Spence and Crawford fight in their primes.

Spence is an example of a fighter who uses their height effectively, when I watch Easter he leans in and gives away all his height advantages. Mikey did try his best, it's just Spence had a great gameplan and it stopped Mikey from having any success.

I completely forgot about the Arum Garcia feud, that's the only thing that stops it from happening. I think if Mikey still wants to fight Lomachenko, he should get like a win or 2 then do it because he was just in a rough fight. Do you think Mikey will still be the same after fighting Spence? I worry that Mikey will end up being like Brook after he fought Golovkin and won't be the same anymore. If Mikey goes to 140, I'd like to see him fight the winner of the WBSS.

I think Pacquiao would fight him. I heard that but never got that about Porter fighting Spence, what has he said that implies that he's not interested? I think Crawford still has some time before he declines, I wonder how his fight with Khan goes, if he doesn't take much damage he could be good to go.

How do you see Crawford vs Khan going?

Champion97's picture

No I don't, but I also think he still has a bit left in the tank, I think he won't be as good as new, but won't be ruined by the loss, I think somewhere in between, but Mikey is 31, he will retire after a few more fights, whether he'd beaten Spence or not. I don't think Brook was ruined by the Golovkin fight, I think the same happened with him, he was not the same, but he lost to Spence because Spence is better, he was beating Spence in the early rounds because he was more experienced. The problem is, that would take at least a year.

I think he's thinking, 'if you can't beat em, join em', when talking about the fight, Porter doesn't avoid the topic, he is an honest athlete, but he doesn't talk like he wants the fight, not because he is scared to get hurt, but why train for a fight you don't believe you can win?, not saying that is definitely the case, but it is possible. Pacquiao would much rather fight Mayweather than Spence, Pacquiao is intelligent himself, he knows the Mayweather fight is much more winnable and arguably as big a fight. He's 31, he's fresh, fighters are aging better as time goes on, I think black and asian fighters age better, but at the end of the day, age is age, and even if it is very slowly which it probably will be, he will start to decline, soon.

Crawford knocks him out early, Khan is slightly older, but has a lot more miles, he has not been active, and I don't think he was ever on Crawford's level, he can't outbox Crawford. You?

He still got some left I feel. I think it might be too early to say since he hasn't had a fight post Spence yet. I think The GGG fight ruined him to some extent.

That could be the case, and Spence isn't a big cash cow to take that risky fight against. I think Pacquiao is more willing to take the fight then Garcia or Porter. I think Pacquiao would more likely take the Mayweather fight though. It would be more winnable, more money, and he gains more by beating Mayweather. I can see him declining soon. He's getting older and it happens with all fighters, some later then others.

I think Khan gives him some problems before he's stopped. Crawford will be up on the cards.

Do you see Breazele giving Wilder any problems?

Exactly, to some extent, I agree he wasn't the same after it, but there's an in between, sometimes a loss can be bad for a fighter, without being the finish of them like Wilder vs Stiverne, but I don't think the GGG loss took as much away from Brook as people think, I think he was delcining anyway, Spence was better, but I think the eye, mentally, was his undoing, also, coming back down to 147 was tough, but he didn't take that bad a beating against Golovkin, the eye socket breaking was unfortunate, but I think don't think Golovkin ruined Brook, still, that's my opinion, it definitely was bad for him as a fighter, it is arguable how much it took away from him.

His reputation would suggest that, but he is the one with another particular fight he is after, and that is the Mayweather rematch. Pacquiao is already declining, just incredibly slowly.

We will see, but I think people who think Khan wins are getting carried away.

Not really, he can hurt Wilder, I think he might have a good round, hurt Wilder, but won't drop him or have him out on his feet like Ortiz, Wilder is technically better, can control the fight with his jab, but within 6 rounds, Wilder will stop him, Breazeale is easy to hit, doesn't have a great chin, and I think Wilder stops him. You?

I was never a big fan of GGG vs Brook, I knew that it would be too much. It made good business sense but other then that not a fight I was desperate to see. The fight with GGG could've ruined him mentally, like with the whole eye situation.

It's not a bad fight to look forward, there's more to gain from it, because a win over Mayweather still means something since Floyd is undefeated. I'd still like to see Pacquiao fight Spence.

I'm not picking Khan, I just think he'll give him problems during the fight. He most likely will be stopped.

I pretty much echo those sentiments. I think Wilder will get a second or third round ko. I never thought Breazele was that good. I thought he got off the hook against Mansour and was close to getting stopped. Breazele has power, but I don't think he'll be much of a threat to Wilder. I would love to see Breazele vs Kownacki, what do you think of that fight.

You were more against it than I was, and you were vindicated, I overestimated Brook's ability to be strong at 160. There are two ways of looking at it, I dont think it ruined him mentally overall, but in terms of the eye, I think it was what the doctor said after the first fight that scared him.

I don't know, Mayweather and Pacquiao are better matched. So would I, the fight is possible, but I think Pacquiao expected Mikey to win, he might fight Spence though.

We'll see, I don't think he gives him problems, but I wouldn't be surprised if he gave a him a few problems. If Khan is still there after 8 rounds, that's a poor performance from Crawford, and I expect him to out box Khan as well, Khan doesn't still have more speed, I don't think, isn't more technically skilled than Crawford.

Me neither. I don't think so, it's Wilder's fight to lose, Breazeale can hurt him, can knock him out if Wilder makes a bad enough mistake, but Wilder hits harder, has the better chin. Exactly, that's what I keep saying, Breazeale should not be fighting Wilder, it should be Whyte if the immediate Fury rematch isn't on.
