Fans may have to wait longer after years of speculations and rumors regarding the fight between Terence Crawford and Errol Spence Jr. Although the fight was originally scheduled for November 19, it seems unlikely to happen this year.
Spence vs Crawford, at 147-pounds, is the most important fight in boxing. With all four world titles recognized, the undisputed welterweight champion would be at stake.
Spence has a 28-0 record with 22KOs and currently holds the WBC, WBA Super, and IBF welterweight titles. Crawford is unbeaten with a 38-0 record, including 29 KOs. Crawford also holds the WBO belt.
Although it looked like the fight was moving along a few weeks back, the silence of both promoters and fighters could indicate that the fight was not yet signed and made official.
It’s the ultimate boxing fight that every fan desires to see. This fight has all the ingredients to be a classic. Let’s hope the two men can agree and make the fight before the end or early in 2023.
My guess is that if we were going to see this fight, it would already be happening. I don’t think Spence’s people have any desire for this fight ever to happen. Look for Spence’s next fight against number one contender Keith Thurman. Thurman was elevated to being the number one contender a couple of months ago so that Spence would have a safe opponent.
Many boxing pundits, fighters and fans have contributed their thoughts on how Crawford vs Spence will play out.
Ade Oladipo said that this fight would be between two of the best P4P fighters in the world. Oladipo told the DAZN Boxing Show that he believes it’s a 50/50 match but that it must take place next.
“This is as good a deal as you can get. This is pound for pound #1 vs pound for pound #5. It is often discussed whether it will reach the magic one million. The boxing expert said that it can.
Sergio Mora, a former WBC light-middleweight champion feels that there may be shades of Leonard and Hearns in this fight. He stated:
” I think it will be more like Sugar Ray Leonard vs Tommy Hearns, when they were both welterweights. It was a thrilling fight for 15 rounds.
“This is the old school greatness of Errol Spence and Bud Crawford. It’s hard to say who would win that fight. Sometimes it might be Crawford. Sometimes it might be Spence. Mora said, “I think it’s one of the most important fights in boxing.”
I am sorry to tell Ade this but to compare Spence/Crawford to Leonard/Hearns is moronic to say the least. Leonard and Hearns did not duck each other, they fought and it did not take years. Skill-level wise these guys are good but nowhere near Leonard and Hearns. Also, Ade, Leonard/Hearns went 14 rounds, not 15!
Let’s hope that the fight is made as it would be great for boxing but do not hold your breath, because if you do you will die!
