Errol Spence folks. He just wins and wins, usually by KO.

I see him putting Peterson away inside of 6. If Mathysse could drop this guy in 3, it could go even less. Spence hits at least as hard and is 5x faster. Dude is lightning and hasn't even hit his peak.

Easily the best welterweight active right now. I might even give him the edge over the currently inactive Thurman, who might've gotten all soft now that he's married.

(That's what happens folks, and it gets worse when you have kids...look at Peezy and Yoda, both those cats turned into marshmallow fluff)

I need a good boxing match to start the year because I'm still p*ssed off over watching Saunders clown Lemieux. If I want dancing I'll pull up YouTube and watch the video for Thriller.

Yeah I will be tuned in.  Thurman's inactivity is troubling... I want to root for the home town kid of course but I feel Spence has the edge.

I was off by a couple rounds. Fight officially stopped in 8th round but Peterson really only hung in there for 7. 

Spence is a bad, bad man. I don't think he would KO One Time but he simply has too much speed and firepower. Thurman has the experience and knowledge to frustrate him a little but as of right now, he'd lose based on what I've seen out of both.

Gonna depend on who Thurman fights in a few months, in his comeback fight, before I could even think about changing my mind. 

Honestly I'd like to see Crawford fight Spence more than I would Thurman. Crawford is IMO the best P4P boxer on the planet. Don't even see any of the other welters beating him. He has more of a nasty edge than Spence and closes the show once he's found a rhythm for his shots.

Yeah I see Spence beating Thurman too now... barring some major changes to Thurmans defense... He may call himself 1 time but its been a long time since that were true (once he stepped up on competition) and I don't see him being able to beat Spence on points.

I think he is capable of beating Spence. I just don't see it where things stand right now.

If you're Thurman and you're planning to return in April after a year long layoff due to surgery and rehab, do you fight a tuneup against a lesser opponent, hoping to just get in some glorified cardio, or do you come back against someone with some skills and legitimacy? Positives and negatives for each choice.

IMO if he doesn't fight a half-capable opponent, then he will be nowhere near ready for what Spence will bring to his face.

The way I see it, Thurman has not faced and will not face anyone as good as Errol Spence. But that goes both ways.
