Don't get me wrong guys, I like Spence, I really do. He's one of those quiet nice guys who has a killer instinct in there, I dig that. On the other hand, I don't get the idea of people making sparring sessions out to be a big deal when it comes to Spence, but tend to do the opposite when it comes to other fighters.
In real fights, he looks spectacular, but he still hasn't truly had that kind of fight. I believe Saturday will tell us most of what we need to know about Spence, and I say mostly because people are already counting Brook out.
I don't get it, I really don't. If Brook's slow, lacks the talent, and is a quitter....then how much credit should Spence get for beating him? The bigger question is, how much credit is he supposed to get if he goes out there and steamrolls him?
The only way that we can say Spence is the real deal, is if we give Brook the credit he deserves, mainly for taking the fight, and knowing that he'll go out there and put on a show. Yeah, GGG beat him, but he gave a gallant effort in route to the stoppage. If I had to critique him, I'd say that he took way too many punches early on, which didn't help matters later on.
Brook has a pretty decent jab, an underrated straight right hand, and hell....I'll even give him credit for knowing how to hold....and y'all know how much I HATE when a professional fighter refuses to hold when he gets hurt. Lol
All I'm saying is, Brook should get a little more respect coming into this fight. I honestly believe this one goes to the cards as well. Everybody's predicting a KO on behalf of Spence, but I'm not all that sure about it. How many times have fans predicted a stoppage in fights that should've ended in a stoppage, but it went to the cards?
Trust me, if I'm wrong, I'll take that egg on my face (no homo).
