Terence Crawford Says Errol Spence Has More to Gain in Undisputed Fight
WBO welterweight champion Terence “Bud” Crawford (38-0, 29KO) versus unified champion Errol “The Truth” Spence Jr (28-0, 22KO) for undisputed will hopefully happen in 2023. However, Crawford won’t be disappointed to leave the sport without getting the undisputed welterweight crown.
Crawford has mentioned in the past he would sleep fine walking away from boxing with or without fighting Spence. The WBO champion’s reasoning behind it was merely due to the fact that he once held the undisputed status at junior welterweight.
CRAWFORD CAN WALK AWAY WITHOUT SPENCE BOUT
During an interview on The Good Fight With Kate Abdo, Bud doubled down his position.
“If I leave the sport and not being able to accomplish becoming undisputed at 147, it doesn’t hinder me or make me feel in any way because I already did it before. I know how it feels.”
“Errol Spence, he don’t know what it feels like to have all the belts on him. He don’t know what it feels like to be the only champion in a division.”
Crawford makes a compelling point considering he was undisputed at junior welterweight. Yet, The boxing world wants to see the biggest fight of this generation between the two champions.
