Spence vs Crawford – Errol Spence Jr. vs Terence Crawford is getting closer every day for a massive matchup in Las Vegas.
Three-belt welterweight king Spence Jr. is open to accepting a matchup with Crawford in 2022 after admitting other doors are open for negotiations.
Spence vs. Crawford
Crawford left Bob Arum and Top Rank after beating Shawn Porter last November. Since then, free promotional agency has made the fight more viable.
Spence defeated Yordenis Ugas on April 16 in Texas for three versions of the welterweight crown. The victory made the Crawford Pay Per View even more lucrative for the pair.
Regarding his willingness to sit around a table with Crawford, Spence also said at the time that undisputed status was a priority.
“That wasn’t my first thought. But talking to my manager, the people he’s dealing with now, I think is a lot easier to do,” Spence told the DAZN Boxing Show.
“We will see what happens after the Ugas affair. If I have three belts.
He added while going for another headline: “A lot of people want me to say this and that. But the proof is in the pudding of what I do.
“I am fighting for my third belt. Let’s put something on the table so I can fight for a fourth belt.
The boxing world continues to be hungry for a fight. It is one of the top three Pay Per View in the sport that could generate a lot of money.
Shawn Porter, who fought both men, aired his views on a recent episode of The Last Stand Podcast.
“Absolutely. Terence Crawford v Errol Spence will be a blast. I can guarantee that,” Porter said.
“Errol likes being Commander-in-Chief. He likes to control the ring. He likes to do what he wants to do. Against me, he chose to try to beat me at my own game.”
“Terence says, ‘I’m coming to the ring. It is what I am going to do; stop me’. You have two guys saying arrest me. You can’t beat this!
Regarding the negotiations, the two men seem to be on the same page. Details are still being worked out in the background. However, World Boxing News understands the pair are not pursuing any further fights for 2022.
Spence spoke to FightHub TV saying, “It’s closer now than ever. If it’s not the case occur now that will never happen.
“It’s much closer than before. I think it will definitely happen.
Crawford told ESPN he made the fight a reality: “Hopefully. That’s the plan.
“It’s up to us to do the work on the commercial side. It’s up to us to share the ring for anyone who wants to see us share the ring together.
“I think the moment right now is the best moment. This is for all marbles. Errol Spence got three of the titles. I have one.
“It would be for the undisputed. There would be no other champion in the division. This is the greatest time for both of us to fight.
The fingers remain firmly crossed. The winner of the fight would also be the new pound-for-pound king.
