Crawford didn’t need no drugs to beat him….Gamboa is not a natural lightweight so give it up with the BS………………….Posted July 6, 2014 12:34 pm
Crawford did not have to take a drug test, no test was given for either fighter, smells fishy to me…………………..plus, Crawford was much bigger, Gamboa is a featherweight. Crawford is a Jr. Middleweight/Middleweight, he should fight Golovkin next…………Posted July 6, 2014 1:59 am
you must not follow terrence crawford, he is very impressivePosted July 5, 2014 11:32 pm
I was not impress with Terrence Crawford . First ,,he is a big light weight ,which was fighting literally a feather weight in Yuriorkis Gamboa . Second ,,Gamboa look really good against Crawford in the first 4 rounds which Crawford had no answer to .Then Crawford’s weight difference started to show . Remember every one that Crawford came in around 150 + pounds on fight night . Third ,, Gamboa was able to hurt Crawford in the 8th or 9th round ,Crawford was on wobbly legs . What happens when Crawford fights some one good in the light weight division or the 140 lbs division . Ricky Burns was not a good fighter .Posted July 4, 2014 10:33 pm
“Yeah Kato, there is ALOT of Monday morning Quaterbacking going on… Crawford did NOT just bully Gamboa he outsmarted him once he figured out his attack and adjusted to his speed… That takes real boxing talent and IQ… And the nature of this dominance and taking over of the contest is what entitles him to accolades,”
Very true, SREDMOND. But according to Boxtra$$wipe, the only reason Crawford won is because Gamboa held his hands too low. LMAO!Posted July 4, 2014 11:56 am
Crawford is the real dealPosted July 3, 2014 12:45 pm
Crawford vs Duran is next for LightWeight Title.Posted July 3, 2014 10:54 am
Yeah Kato, there is ALOT of Monday morning Quaterbacking going on… Crawford did NOT just bully Gamboa he outsmarted him once he figured out his attack and adjusted to his speed… That takes real boxing talent and IQ… And the nature of this dominance and taking over of the contest is what entitles him to accolades, Marquez came from LW to 147 and neither, Bradley, Mayweather, nor Pacquaio knocked him out… Crawford deserves respect, Gamboa was the best fighter he had been in with by plenty seriously “Ricky Burns and Prescott”Posted July 3, 2014 10:50 am
Yeah, it wasn’t like he was leaning on him or anything. The only thing Crawford did was push Gamboa back when Gamboa clinched. Looking forward to Crawfords future fights.Posted July 2, 2014 9:57 pm
@SREDMOND~ Cosign…. No one;s giving TC props for what he did. He didn’t just beat Gamboa, he beat the HELL outta him. Abril or Vazquez wouldn’t stand a chance against this kid.
Gamboa is a mini Tyson, and bit off more than he could handle last Saturday. I was rooting for Gamboa too… I didn’t want either fighter to lose. Gamboa’s a true warrior and wanted to leave everything in the ring. The better man won that night though.
Gamboa’s 50 Cent’s best commodity and I really would like 50 to succeed at promoting… Unfortunately Gamboa lost. TIme to get back to the gym and look about getting more fights. JuanMa’s back…,Posted July 2, 2014 3:44 pm
@SREDMOND ~ Cosign… For real.. he didn’t just beat him… He beat the hell outta him. Oh, Gamboa was a lighweight… blah, blah, blah… Gamboa took the fight. The End. I was rooting for Gamboa, just because he’s a warrior and he’s the only good commodity that 50 cent still has. And I was rooting for that fact, wanted 50 to succeed. But the better man won that night. I can see TC taking care of the weak lighweight division and moving up and taking on some of the better names. Anyone at 140 could be stopped by TC.Posted July 2, 2014 3:40 pm
People are being WEAK, Crawford did not just physically overwhelm Gamboa with body mass, he visibly shifted tactics and took advantage of the Cubans face first attacks towards the end of the 4th round… He began jabbing nicely and finding Gamboas skull, he launched uppercuts because they were smart weapons against the smaller man.. Crawford did not just defeat Yuri on points, he beat the HELL out of him and left him on the deck… He deserves big cred for that win because Gamboa was regarded as FAR better than Ricky Burns or Bredis Prescott… Nice Work Crawford despite the Monday Morning QB’s…Posted July 2, 2014 12:48 pm
WOW, he beat a featherweight…Big Deal! let’s see him fight Abril or vazquezPosted July 2, 2014 12:41 pm
Tark, that’s my point exactly. My comment was to point out the hypocrisy.Posted July 2, 2014 10:58 am
seems like mayweather sen. being Gamboas trainer has been a crap idea. no added defensive skills at all.
When did Crawford get rocked??? In the 9th round??? Hardly… He did catch something good, but nothing I’d call ‘Getting Rocked’.
Eithercase give TC the credit he deserves. Gamboa decided he wanted to take TC on even after such a long layoff…Whose fault is that? Crawford is the real deal and showed it in front of his home town crowd. I stood in there and traded with a baby Tyson….Way to go TC!!!!
And I would vote for it for FOTY… over that Guerrero debacle.Posted July 2, 2014 10:16 am
Gamboa gassed out after 4. Grawford is huge for 135. Lets see what he can do at 140 with guys his own size.Posted July 2, 2014 9:58 am
Crawford is very impressive similar to my uncanny ability at picking fights. To be honest though it is easy when you are the greatest fight PROPHET ever!!!!Posted July 2, 2014 7:41 am
Crawford is no welter. He has fought as low at 131. All but 6 fights have been under 140. He doesn’t come in weight drained and doesn’t look bad at weigh ins.Posted July 2, 2014 1:33 am
Crawford is a natural welter. He had to drain himself down to 12 lbs to make weight. This means he’s a natural welter weight. Gamboa was moving up, and had a long year lay off with no real completion in his recent fight. Bad decision for Gamboa. The result was no surprise. Crawford got rocked by a flyweight. We shall see what happens when he gets clocked by a natural welterweight who can punch.Posted July 2, 2014 12:47 am
Gamboa is still to small for 135. Has nothing to do with his height, more to do with his punching power and taking punches. He needs to move down.Posted July 1, 2014 10:54 pm
screwy louie… It’s not the height that wins you the fight.. Otherwise Paul Williams and Nicolai Valuev would have been undefeated.
Lomachenko has surpassing skills, and that’s why he beat Russell… Who was taller, Donaire or Rigondeaux?Posted July 1, 2014 10:53 pm
Gamboa fights like that in every fight.Posted July 1, 2014 10:13 pm
Gamboa kept running in with his hands down and then leaving them down like an ametuer. Gamboa just got frustrated and fought like a a dumbars after round 4 is why he got ko’d. Seemed like gamboa just gave up and ran in like a fool with his hands down like a sitting duck, anyone can hit someone with there hands down. Gamboa’s cornor told him he was lowering his guard not protecting himself. You could say Gamboa had a mental breakdown and thru the fight basically is what I saw.Posted July 1, 2014 10:06 pm
Ain’t it funny how these clowns keep saying that Crawford was too tall for Gamboa, but we’re mum about Lomachenko height advantage over Russell?Posted July 1, 2014 8:37 pm
Crawford was definitely impressive. Especially since the odds were so close on the fight. Not sure why. I had Crawford by stoppage once the fight was announced. Yes Crawford is just that good.Posted July 1, 2014 7:26 pm
This pundit makes the false claim, “Crawford was the bigger pugilist who weighed ten more pounds than he did in the ring.
How about 7 pounds… Dehydrating and rehydrating 17lbs for a 135 pounder puts you at significant risk of not making the weight or fighting weight drained.
Gamboa looked like a true lightweight.. Crawford had the look of a super lightweight.. Gamboa did a 10-pound dehydration — which isn’t that easy, but is more comfortable and not as draining.Posted July 1, 2014 3:58 pm
Man! People don’t want to give Terence Crawford any credit. Gamboa has had long layoffs before….. this isn’t the first time. Crawford took him apart once he made the switch to southpaw. I didn’t know who to root for… I thought Gamboa would’ve found a way to pull it out… but Crawford stood his ground and took out the Cuban Warrior.Posted July 1, 2014 3:01 pm
Killing Moon The Soothsayer
The thing is…A win over Gamboa …Is a win over Gamboa..Can’t be argued about , can’t be belittled….This makes his career forever…If Crawford is a coming superstar? I don’t know…But he’s in a great position to be one…Conquering the lightweight div vs Vazquez, Waiting for Garcia to move up or moving up to face a namewise very strong light-welter div. but perhaps skill-wise not that impressive (Broner,provo,peterson etc)…And a showdown with another Garcia or a monster of a puncher….Interesting times are awaiting Crawford…And he’s already beat Gamboa !Posted July 1, 2014 2:27 pm
Keep it real
Mismatch – Gamboa fighting above his weight – Crawford boiling down to achieve weight. Gamboa’s talent and courage kept it interesting before finally crumbling, outpowered, outreached and mismatched. Crawford should be ashamed of himself.Posted July 1, 2014 1:37 pm
Just as I predicted!!Posted July 1, 2014 1:16 pm
YES he WAS impressive!Posted July 1, 2014 1:16 pm
Crawford didnt look to good in the first 4 but made a great come back, Crawford is and was to big for the smaller guy.
Sometime size matters.Posted July 1, 2014 12:41 pm
