This is an old video btw. Ellie recycling his own stuff.
The more i watch footage (not this one of course), the more i feel Mikey has a chance. That said, I'm still not picking him to win.
As for Thurman being the top dog, theoretically it's true but nobody is factoring in the fact that Spence WANTS to fight those guys who would improve his resume and they clearly don't want to fight him. So yea, Thurman has the better resume. Thurman is "the guy" in the division. But you shouldn't get to stay the guy if someone is ready willing and able to fight you and you want every fight BUT him. It's kinda like Anthony Joshua. At some point, him not wanting to fight Wilder, Fury or even Ortiz has to tarnish his reign as HW king.
In terms of Thurman's last fight. Fans should not be giving him shit because he didn't come in, of a long layoff, and blow away his competition. That's casual nonsense. That said, this isn't the first time Keith has looked bad vs a guy everyone thought he'd mow down. Keith struggles with in your face fighters who can take a punch and throw to the body. Ironically, who is the best body puncher in the division?
