IBR on The Cruelest Sport


“Crawford, who faces Hank Lundy in the main event of the HBO Championship Boxing card from Madison Square Garden in New York, is not facing Manny Pacquiao, as rumors ultimately as hollow as they were well-placed encouraged us to believe. But his rejection as the Filipino’s first final opponent reflects how formidable a fighter Crawford has become. It was not finances that prompted Team Pacquiao to choose Tim Bradley a third time, but preservation. Bradley is the more familiar fighter, yes, he is more proven; Crawford is better. Just how much better is something neither the brain trust of a 37-year-old veteran of 65 fights, nor the fighter himself, is interested in presently determining.”
