Title: Crawford v Indongo For the Undisputed 140lb
Post by: Scarface on August 19, 2017, 05:09:29 PM

Really surprised nobody has started a thread on this great fight - 2 unbeaten fighters with all the belts on the line.

I'm looking forward to this tonight.

Anyone else ?

I thought I'd log on and check see if we had anything on this, unfortunately I'm not too surprised that it hasn't got much attention.

One of the (generally considered) top 5 pound for pound guys and usually goes for the KO with a chance to complete a rare feat and own all four major belts.

I'll be up and I've got to go with Crawford despite a few of Indongo's nuances with his height, reach and southpaw stance. I see a very much dominant performance from Crawford as he tends to do, in ilk of the level he showed when he fought Postol. Obviously we haven't seen too much of Indongo, I think Crawford possibly forces a late stoppage to set up bigger fights against more renowned names.

Looking forward to it.

Having seen both guys live I have to go with Crawford UD possibly late stoppage, Good footwork and closes the range well and can also switch hit.

Yes I'm looking forward to this fight I'm the same as the others Crawford to take this be interesting first 3-4 rounds as Indongo is very awkward just not sure his skills are as good as Crawford.

Some talk of Crawford fighting Spence if he wins tonight not sure might need a tune up fight at 147ibs first.

Little nervous about Crawford having a hard time making weight.

Think he should still get the job done, but he needs to move up after this fight.

Indongo very game with those long arms. Crawford looking sharp as well. Great start...

Crawford lights his body up with a nuclear bomb in the third! One of the best knockouts by body shot I have ever seen! Crawford is something special!

Well that was a big mismatch! what a cracking body shot from Crawford he made Indongo look average in there those big wild swings were never going to land on Crawford though.

That's thing though. This was supposed to be competitive. Crawford made it look like a mismatch, but it wasn't supposed to be that way on paper.

I know, my comment wasn't discrediting Crawford he was outstanding tonight and read everything Indongo was trying and countered with a lovely body shot.

Crawford has done it the old fashioned way, he's not had the big fanfare but he's gone about his business just bashing up quality opposition.

I won money on him beating Burns and he's just got better each time out. He's a fighter who still works at his craft. He's got a great attitude. Step by step and think his family life keeps him grounded. He can do it all in the ring. It'd be a shame to vacate all those belts just when he's taken complete ownership of the weight class, but I don't really see who he can fight at 140. There are no mega fights there at first glance. 147 seems to be the route forward.

Thought Indongo was embarrassingly bad to be brutally honest.

Thought Indongo was embarrassingly bad to be brutally honest.

He was what he's always been.....his problem was he didn't have any surprise factor going for him anymore.
He won the title by catching the titlist cold and then unified against Burns who couldn't deal with his awkwardness, and at that point nobody really knew much about the Namibian other than he could punch a bit.

But by the time he fought Crawford, he was a known quantity and Crawford did his homework and just did a job on him. Add to this that Crawford is obviously levels above Indongo's previous foes and the gulf in class was glaring.

Have to say. I don't recall ever seeing a two handed body shot KO before.  That was ridiculously impressive.

Spence v Crawford in the future when it really is considered to be a superfight. Perhaps when Spence is undisputed 147lb... and crawford has seen off Porter and Garcia.
