Can't see anything other than a comfortable win for Crawford here, to unify the division. Indongo is big and strong at the weight, but he has never fought anyone anwhere near as good as Crawford. I think that the comfortable win against Burns may have made Indongo look better than he is. And the 1st rd KO of the Russian in his previous bout might also be a bit deceiving. Crawford has a lot more power and ringcraft than Burns, and is several levels above anyone else that Indongo has fought. I hope that Indongo can use his awkward style and big frame to unsettle Crawford and make a fight of it but, although Crawford can get careless and gets hit a bit too easily from time to time, I can't see Indongo having much success, tbh.

The odds are appalling though , 1.10 Crawford Cry

Indongo has stepped up to top class last 2 fights and had 2 easy wins , i don't think he can be written off as a journeyman.

He may be way better than anyone Crawford has fought before , but we have Eddie Hearn undercard type pricing up here

Yea, the price is poor. It was 1.13 yesterday, I think, but even that price is not very attractive. No bet for me, unless Crawford gets off to a particularly slow start, and Indongo can land some decent shots, thereby skewing the price. Still can't see crawfoed going all that high, though.

Think Indongo is a silly price and has to be backed at 13's. We just don't know how good he is at this point and I'm willing to take a chance at those odds.

Crawford is absolute class

Didn't stay up for it, but an impressive win against an over-matched opponent. I wonder if Crawford stays at 140 and maybe takes on Mikey Garcia (whom he beat in the amateurs) that would be a great fight. Or does he move up and take on the likes of Thurmann or Spence Jnr? I guess he will face mandatories for some or other of the belts, and may vacate one or more depending on where he wants to go from here.
