Crawford will break.him down and get the TKO in the later rounds

I'll tell you what. Bud Crawford is a badddd man. He was playing with fire for awhile staying in southpaw. Rd's 2 & 3, geeeeezus. For him to fight in southpaw, the majority of the fight, KNOWING that Southpaw would make him more susceptible to Kavaliuskas' power shot, but the KO came as soon as he switched to orthodox. I thought his gameplan was risky, to stand right in front of the hardest puncher he's ever faced. (In my opinion), but knowing that Bud Crawford won't shy away from a fight, didn't really surprise me. All in All, this card was fire... The top 3 fights were spectacular. I did call Teofimo Lopez winning. I was definitely not in the majority. I thought Lopez woulda been the hardest puncher he's faced, but I also thought Commey's ability to take a ******* shot was just as goood as an x-factor as Lopez power. And because of that, I thought it'd be Teofimo's 2nd straight decision win. I saw it as Power vs. Chin/Durability. Annnd that's kinda how it played out.... Only Commey's chin didn't hold up. But it kinda did. He got up from that 1st Knockdown. That 1st shot Lopez landed..... My goodness. That woulda KO'd anybody else. Commey just wobbled around the whole ring. Whatta performance from Teofimo man. That kid is legit. And Conlan vs. Nikitin was also a fantastic fight. Last night was one of those gifts from the Combat Sports Gods. Both MMA & Boxing

I agree bud, last night was full of terrific fights!  Made up for last weekends dud of Joshua Ruiz and UFC DC.  I have Crawford p4p no1 ahead of Loma.  I just wish he was with PBC so he could fight the best at 147, that is hurting his legacy.  I have to give you props for Teofimo mate, I thought it was too much too soon and his last performance really stuck in my mind.  But he ****** walloped Commey, they both swung at the same time and Lopez was just quicker, more accurate and more power!
Conlan is good, but I think he'll struggle with the top guys at his weight.
Lopez vs Loma is next.  Who ya got??  Does Loma school him, is he at the point of having too many fights, over 350 amateur fights!. Is Lopez quick enough, big enough and more importantly skilful enough to catch and hurt Loma??? Your thoughts?
