Terence Crawford Calls Out Spence for Flipping on Keith Thurman Fight

Unified welterweight champion Errol “The Truth” Spence Jr (28-0, 22KO) was called out by WBO champion Terence “Bud” Crawford for possibly fighting Keith “One Time” Thurman (30-1, 22KO).


News of the scrapped undisputed bout between The Truth and Bud continues to hurt boxing fans like a lingering gut-punch. The pain intensified when news broke that Crawford and relatively unknown David Avanesyan will fight instead. Furthermore, their fight is a Pay-Per-View on an unheard-of app called BLK Prime, which left fans scratching their heads.

Spence is rumored to possibly be fighting former unified champion Keith Thurman next. Fans remember when the Texas unified champion accused Thurman of not wanting to fight him. He once tweeted that a fight with the former unified champion was not going to happen.

Crawford has endured heavy criticism for his unheralded moves. However, turning the finger-pointing to Spence, Bud resurfaced the unified champion’s original unwillingness to fight Thurman. He took to social media to call out his rival’s hypocrisy.

“I hear through the grapevine Spence is about to fight a guy that he promised and he swear that he wasn’t going to fight, which is Keith Thurman. Now I don’t know how true that is, but that’s what floating around.

So what’s up with the trueness with that? You swear up and down that you’re not going to fight this guy, you don’t care what nobody say. Now you about to fight him! So that means you was lying, buddy!”
