It will be a boxing clinic for "Bud." "Dougy Style" Jean move and scrap as if he is stuck in mud. Holla!

Crawford is the complete fighter. I wish the kid fought every week I would not miss a round.


-the Roast :

I'd just like to say that Dierry Jean is not my lover. He's just a girl who claims that I am the one. The kid is NOT my son.

Jean is at least ranked 12 on boxrec. Haymon digs up his cans from way further out, usually coming off a loss no less. He was in a close fight with Peterson and beat the heck out of Belmontes in his last fight. The same Belmontes who beat the heck out of Omar Figuero Jr only to be robbed by SD. OMF is being served up a walking dead fighter in Demarco. Haymon should be charged with conspiracy to commit murder with that dreadful matchup.

Ask and you shall receive. D2 is the best at spotting the PBC mismatches around here, and for the most part he is on the money. But then he does have an algorithm to assist. :) :)

No gentleman's bet here, we are on the same page. Jean solid but made to order for Crawford. Crawford is going to look like a star in this one.
