  • Kavaliauskas is going to have to floor Crawford if the fight goes 12 (to have any hope on the cards). Kavaliauskas says he isn’t going to get wild. As for Kavaliauskas’s draw with Ray Robinson, well, Josh Kelly had a draw with Robinson 3 months later, and he is a big prospect out of the UK. So Crawford fighting Kavaliauskas or Josh Kelly, it is about the same thing, they are the two best out of Europe at 147 right now (Kelly and Kavalisaskas may be right up there with Besputin and Lipinets, hard to say who is the best of those 4 out of Europe/Russia).

    • Like always, Crawford will feel him out in a few rounds and find his niche winning on points switching southpaw/orthodox. After Crawford sees the holes in Kavaliauskas’ offense or defense, the rest is history. Crawford wins on points……..No doubt. This fight is hyper-inflated as I don’t feel this will be a huge challenge for Crawford.

      • Why do some of you always downplay boxing matches of certain fighters? This guy is a top fighter at 147 crawford is more highly touted but the guy is a live dog! I’ll bet you said the AJ vs Ruiz 1 fight would be a walkover for AJ stop disrespecting fighters

  • It really is a shame how promoters are using the old “wait until he gets old” tactic like some of the biggest money makers have when it comes to facing Crawford. The only one I saw as a threat was Spence, but let’s see how he comes back after his accident. Crawford by late stoppage and then it’s in to another halfname because of politics.

  • Are you guys boxing fans or not! This is a good matchup and we haven’t seen the guy in action in a long time. He’s fighting a top guy and anything can happen. Support the fighters

  • My only problem with Crawford is that he flat out refused to fight Porter. Porter is a top dog who called you out. Why not fight him?
