Not sure how y'all watched this, if at all, but I did the free 7-day trial for ESPN+. They ain't getting another penny from me.

But it was worth it to watch him dismantle the poor guy. He was a tough dude but had to have known he wasn't going to muscle around the little demon from Omaha like he did Pacquiao. If he didn't then he was just not very bright.

Some might like to watch a guy box, move, score for the duration of a fight but I prefer when a guy does what he knows he can do to end things as expeditiously as possible, and in this case it was start firing away right away. There was enough to make you happy though, like when he switched stances from southpaw to righty and back just to throw a tiny curveball at a guy who was already outmatched.

Crawford needs not to bother with contenders at welterweight. Even after one fight. But honestly the only guy who could hang with him at that weight is Spence. I can't even say Thurman because even though he holds a belt, he hasn't fought in well over a year and would be somewhere between crazy and stupid to fight him right away. He's still got room to put on a few pounds at 5'8" so he might move up again and make some more money at jr. middle against Hurd or Charlo.

The fact that he's so much fun to watch takes my mind off the sh*t show involving Canelo, GGG and whoever either of those 2 fight (if it's not each other).

Man once I saw ESPN was trying to do some stupid paid services I said thanks but no thanks on that one even though I really wanted to see the fight.  I Didn't even realize there was a trial thing (as there always is).

I bet I can watch the whole thing on youtube in a day or 2.

Lemme tell ya something amigo...I already pay for cable, with all the movie channels, as well as the blessed holy trinity of Netflix/Amazon Prime/Hulu. I would prefer not to pay any more than I already do. The Hulu is actually bundled in w/Spotify Premium, and for 14 bucks a month I can't complain. And the Prime Video is just a cool perk, since the wife is the one who shops online all day it seems.

ESPN just doesn't have much that I watch these days. Sportscenter used to be enjoyable when it was just one wiseass after another. Now it's like no one has a pulse, let alone a personality. Matter of fact, all the networks have either vanilla or annoying people on them and I miss Warren Sapp's mouth.

Thought about searching for the fight on Kodi but the app has been causing me grief lately. Can't find crap. Lot of dead repository links. Ended up using another app, Terrarium, to hunt down Black Panther and watch it -- since when I tried to get it off Kodi I got The PINK Panther Strikes Again. Although that's one of my all time favorites (the scene with Clouseau and the dog is legendary), I wanted to see BP (pretty sure I'm an a-hole because I was rooting for Erik/Michael B. Jordan the whole time).

A lot of people were rooting for Kill Monger though your not the only one and yeah I got that too LOL (Pink Panther).  I still use Kodi but I use the stream smart... more expensive but its back end supported and you never have to do anything yourself except for hitting like 3 buttons for initial start up and refresh it with the red button on the remote every once in a while.

Yeah I have all those services either paid for or family shared.
