PBC Confident Errol Spence Jr vs Terence Crawford Fight Coming 2022


Arguably the most talked about and anticipated fight in boxing today is a welterweight undisputed showdown between unified champion Errol “The Truth” Spence Jr (28-0, 22 KOs) and WBO champ Terence “Bud” Crawford (38-0, 29 KOs). 3KingsBoxing has been monitoring the ongoing negotiations, and here are the latest updates.

According to the source, Fight Freaks United, PBC is confident the match is closed to being finalized. The targeted fight date would be either November 12 or 19, with the bout happening in Las Vegas, Nevada. Additionally, word on the street is that PBC is already in the process of putting together an under-card with WBA ‘regular’ welterweight champ Eimantas Stanionsis facing Cody Crawley as a definite possibility.

WHAT GOT THE BALL ROLLING?

If a poll were conducted of boxing fans and pundits asking what fight would you like to see, it would be Spence vs Crawford. The match was fantasized and opined about for years, but there were no serious and substantive negotiations. That changed following Spence’s stoppage win over Yordenis Ugas to capture the WBA belt in April 2022. Spence went on the record saying he wants to fight Crawford next. A free agent, “Bud” responded by saying that time is now.

The unified champ has been optimistic, going so far as predicting that it’s going to take place this year. That gave most boxing enthusiasts hope. This latest development is even more optimism that will fuel excitement and anticipation.

PBC is a tightly ran organization. For kind of information to drop without push-back from them is a tell-tell sign that a deal is close to being done. More than ever, Spence-Crawford for undisputed status at welterweight appears to be a reality.

But nothing official has been announced, please stay tuned to 3KingsBoxing for continual developments.
