Spence Urges Fans Not To Miss Crawford Bout

On July 29, unified welterweight champion Errol “The Truth” Spence Jr (28-0, 22 KO’s) and WBO champion Terence “Bud” Crawford (39-0, 30 KO’s) will clash in Vegas. Die-hard boxing fans understand this battle for undisputed is as close to a guaranteed classic as you can get in boxing. Yet, Spence wants to make sure that even the less dedicated and casual fans don’t miss out on this spectacular duel.

“I got a message for the fans, everybody make sure you tune into this fight! It’s going to be an amazing, legendary fight. If you have seen fights like [Muhammad] Ali, Joe Frazie, Ray Leonard, [Thomas] Hearns, [Roberto] Duran-Hearns, Duran-Ray Leonard, all those type fights you definitely want to tune into this fight!

“This fight is going to be a war, it’s going to be a war of attrition, this is the fight you want to see if you are an ex-fan, or a fan now or you just a casual. You definitely want to tune into this fight. It’s going to be a straight out war, guts and glory type fight!” 

Errol Spence – Unified Welterweight Champion


Technically speaking, Spence vs Crawford is a rumble that has been years in the making. If spectators were given their choice the two would have mixed it up roughly five years ago when the then undisputed super lightweight Terence Crawford initially matriculated into the division. Clearly this was not to be the case.

Instead, Crawford would collect the WBO strap while Spence meticulously gobbled up the remaining three titles. Now that the two men possess all the belts and no other fighter has any claim at being the dog of the weight class, there is nothing left but for Crawford and Spence to throw down.

Thankfully, all the waiting and suspense is almost over given that we are just days away from the fight! So, if you can’t make it in person, make sure that you watch it live on television because this is a fight that you don’t want to miss!
