  • I admire Avanesyan’s confidence going into this fight as all fighters need motivation to win. However, like in all fights, hype is part of the game for ticket sales, increased TV viewing numbers, etc. Unless Avanesyan has much improved on lateral movement, better defense, speed, and learning how keep Crawford on the ropes, I really don’t see anything spectacular Avanesyan can do to win. Once Avanesyan gets tagged with Crawford’s counter hook, he will soon realize he’s fighting a legit fighter highly capable of marking another defeat on his record. Crawford TKO.
