Errol Spence v Terence Crawford Not Happening in November!
Unified welterweight champion Errol “The Truth” Spence (28-0, 22KOs) has been entrenched in deep negotiations with WBO champion Terence “Bud” Crawford (38-0, 29KOs). The biggest fight to be made in boxing has still yet to be finalized. After multiple reports of a deal being close to completion, we’re heading into November with no deal yet reached. Reminder: the target month for this fight has been November.
As most know, negotiations for fights of this magnitude take time. However, it seems as if we won’t get to see this mega-fight happen in 2022, if at all. Spence has only fought once this year, stopping Yordenis Ugas to add his WBA title to his belt collection. As for Crawford, he hasn’t fought since stopping two-time welterweight champion Shawn Porter last November in ten rounds to retain his WBO title.
With negotiations dragging on and on, Spence took to social media to express his frustration with Crawford.
The three-belt titlist expressed eagerness to finally settle the talk of who’s the best champion in the division. Moreover, it seems that if this fight happens in 2022, it’ll have to be in December. Otherwise, it’s looking like it could happen early in 2023.
Regardless of what happens, we here at 3Kings Boxing will continue to monitor the story and provide updates as they become available.
