You also used the word "if" relative to Spence beating Peterson lol...accept the truth. Stop denying it...
No current welter can keep Spence at Bay....period... People can ignore his kos of algeri and Bundu who Pac and Thurman could not get out of there...Spence laid them down. 11 straight kos...I stand by my statement
Yes, I used the word "if" before the Peterson fight, only because I know Peterson is a dog and won't lay down for anybody. Now....I can't count how many times this has happened, but "fans" will count a fighter out until their favorite fighter beats them, then the said "counted out" fighter is suddenly revered as this "threat" that was overcome by their favorite fighter.
How many people shitted on Peterson after the PED situation and the Matthysse KO loss? Nobody even mentioned Peterson as a viable opponent up until then. So many said that he had "done nothing" at WW, but suddenly Spence is this killer because he beat a guy who hasn't done anything at WW.
Same goes for Bundu. When Keith was scheduled to fight him, people scoffed at it and called him an undefeated nobody with a padded record. Suddenly, Spence is this ATG because he stopped Bundu, but fans forgot so quickly how bad they talked down on him. Go figure.
Same goes for Algieri....people scoffed when the Provodnokiv fight was announced, then he edged him and got the nod. When the Pacquiao fight was signed, people called him a "kick boxer who got lucky" against Ruslan and had no business in the ring with Manny. Suddenly, when Spence stopped him....Spence was once again called this "threat" in the WW division.
I mean, I get it, but I don't. I like Spence, I can't stress that enough. However, fans tend to rewire their brains and rewrite history when it comes to their favorite fighter. I simply don't agree with the statement of nobody being able to keep him at bay. Surely, you have more sense than that.
There are guys who's fought better opposition and are current or former champions that can summon the skill and will to give Spence trouble. You're giving Spence W's for fights that he hasn't even fought, and that sir, makes you come off as a fanboy in a sense.
Again, I like Spence, but I'm starting to not like his fans. I'm putting them in the same boat as those Gee-Gee-Gee fans. Yeah there's a high chance that Canelo used PEDs for the first fight, but the court of public opinion has already labeled him as guilty.
PEDs don't help with skills, period. How was the "great" Gee-Gee-Gee not able to cut off the ring and knock Canelo out? Nobody's blaming Gee-Gee-Gee for the performance, they're simply blaming it on the one who's easiest to blame. Fans see what they wanna see.
