Spence determined to face Crawford before leaving 147!
Often times in boxing, we get two A-listers either in the same division, or one division apart, that clearly separates themselves as the class of the division. With that comes the question of ‘who would win in a potential mega-fight showdown?’. Insert unified welterweight champion Errol “The Truth” Spence (26-0, 21KOs) and WBO welterweight champion Terence “Bud” Crawford (36-0, 27KOs) as the class of 147.
These guys have been linked together for some time now, as fans and fighters all over have speculated on who would win between the two if ever a fight was to happen. Many also wonder if the two will lock horns, but many times as we’ve seen in the past, some big fights just don’t happen for whatever reason. Other times, they happen way too late. Will this be the case when it comes to Spence V Crawford?
SPENCE’S REFUSES TO LEAVE 147 UNTIL HE FACES CRAWFORD!
Brian Custer, the Showtime Championship Boxing Host, told 3kingsboxing.com that Spence himself revealed in their interview on The Last Stand With Brian Custer podcast that he won’t exit the welterweight division without facing Crawford.
“He says he will not leave. He says it specifically in our interview that he will not leave 147, that division, until he’s fought Terence Crawford.”
With Spence going on record making it clear that he will be facing Crawford presumably in 2021, this can ease the fans’ minds a little bit. Obviously with him likely facing Danny “Swift” Garcia (36-2, 21KOs) in the fall, those plans can be halted, as he wants to face WBA welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao (62-7-2, 39KOs) in a unification bout in 2021 as well.
