    Is anyone with me on this

    Brook vs Spence = Spence stoppage, too sharp and accurate doesnt make alot of mistakes

    Brook vs Thurman = Brook stoppage, Thurman makes way too many mistakes to trade with Brook, the fight will probably be in the centre of the ring

    Thurman vs Spence. = 50/50, Spence will come forward, Thurman will be on the backfoot (which he prefers) so its literally who makes the most mistakes, too close to call either could win by KO or decision

    If this fight actually happens and Spence wins there will be a lot of 'Brook lost because he drained too much', 'Brook lost because GGG took too much out of him'. I can already see the built in excuses for any losses he takes at 147. Mighty convenient the mandatory fight doesn't happen until the excuses can roll in. :lol:

    I'm on the Spence hype train. I think the guy's great. I have him winning this match up.

    He was overhyped primarily for being 'slick and black' though.... :conf

    Nobody except @Bogotazo is. Spence is the real deal but he's not man enough for Special Kell yet.

    Ok when I meant Brits, I meant Wig and Shaunster on the first page

    He can't, and if he somehow did make the weight, he'd pull a Canelo and put on 20+ pounds on the night of the fight like he did against Smith when he weighed in at 178

    I wish more fighters would be like Brook but I don't want him to drop back to 147. I don't see how he can make it and be 100% and he needs to be 100% vs Spence. I rather see Brook vs anyone in the top 7 at 154 and see Spence fight Lamont Peterson for the vacant title. It's the perfect step up fight for Spence and one of the best fights you can make for a vacant title with two worthy opponents. Should be an amazing fight and amazing style match up. In a year or two Brook and Spence can fight for Brook's undisputed 154lb title.

    We'll see. I kind of fear for Brook here because I'm worried he won't be able to make 147 lbs. again. That's a big leap up and down. The leap itself might ruin Brook's career. Look at what happened to Roy Jones Jr., right?

    Spence definitely has potential to be world-level.

    What the fuck is American level? In all of my years I've never heard this :rofl

    American level is not the same as world level. People make this mistake over and over again hence american level fighters repeatedly getting overhyped and exposed and history rewritten to "he was never that good anyway, who did he beat?"

    Isn't that known as domestic level? What American fighters were overhyped?

    Broner was overhyped, that's the only one lately I can think of. America has/had a deep talent pool for decades, boxers getting overhyped is bound to happen when there are so many top flight guys in one country

    He had beaten some good guys prior to the Joe Cal fight, and how long ago has that been now?

    I'm sure that it's just a coincidence that Kell Brook acquired all these new fans who think he will destroy anyone right after he was added to GGG's resume.

    Seriously, Lacy vs Calzaghe happened over 10 years ago. Talk about clinging....

    Exactly, everyone on this thread complaining that Brook won't get any credit for beating Spence are the first ones who will say Brook was drained and give Spence no credit. It's laughable how hypocritical people can be even in hypothetical situations.

    Clinging to what? That doesn't make any sense. The example fits the criteria perfectly.
