Many of these reporters are cheerleaders...Spence has called for them all though. Kell Brook was not overwhelmed by his power but succumbed nevertheless.. And the reporter made a good point, Spence has not yet had a problem making 147 so Bomac talking that shit to me represents WISHFUL THINKING in the back of his head--People are banking on Spence not being at 147 long and having to move up as Crawford fights second tier welters exclusively lol aside from speed and a good right one two, Khan is no better than Benavidez. Maybe Crawford will have the guts to face a top welter after KhAN- atleast call one out
Bro, you sound just as bad as these reporters. You just really have it in your mind that everybody's afraid of Spence and you should know better by now. All you think is that he's gonna mow everybody down with body shots, but forget that styles make fights. Kinda sad on your end, but whatever.
How many times have fans hyped up a guy as the one everybody's avoiding, just for us to find out otherwise. I'm not necessarily saying this about Spence because he is rather fundamentally sound, but I'm speaking in general.
What happens is the public creates an unhealthy aura for certain fighters and it only goes wrong when the fighter believes it himself or herself. I remember Spence making reference to how much weight he has to cut and how difficult it can be at times. I believe it was before the Brook fight.
Thing is, nobody's depending on him not making weight...at least that's what I got out of it. I think it's more along the lines of, "This fight may take another 9-12 months to make and he's a big WW, so he may have trouble making weight by the time the fight's announced".
Again, we haven't seen Spence have to use the towel at a weigh-in, but as big as he gets between fights, that may be in the cards sooner or later (depending on his training and nutrition). It's like us hoping Tank fights, let's say a Miguel Berchelt next year. We know how big he gets between fights, so expecting him to be able to make the same weight for a high profile fight next year, is a lot to ask at the moment.
