The welterweight champion of the OMB, Terence crawford seems to have hit rock bottom when it comes to fighting with Errol spence, and assured in his social networks that this fight will no longer take place.
«I’m just going to leave it like that (seek to fight with Spence jr). That chapter for me is totally closed “, he commented Crawford on their social networks.
And they said it was me 🤷🏿♂️ I rest my case now, on to the next. That chapter is now close.

“I’m a guy who struggles to make 147 pounds. I really think people only see 80-70% of me at 147 pounds. I’m a guy who’s overweight. I only hold out in this division because I want to be the undisputed champion at 147 pounds.
The perfect match in the 147-pound class has long been held to be one of Crawford and Spence jrIt is the fight that has been most demanded at the popular level.
However, this has not happened due to various factors; contractual problems of Crawford with Top rank and Bob arum, the car accident of Spence jr, and what perhaps makes more weight, the division of earnings for both fighters.
Spence Jr. is still open to the idea of being able to fight Crawford.
“It could happen,” he said Spence jr during a recent interview. We have to see how it goes, but I can go up to 160 pounds and fight Canelo Alvarez«.
“It’s just that Al haymon and Bob arum sit down and make Bob stop lying, “he explained Spence jr. “We’ll see, but it could definitely happen. They just have to sit down and talk numbers for it to definitely happen. But like I said, I’m the big dog in the welterweight division. You have to sit down and take that 60/40 or 70/30 (winnings) or whatever we give you. “
Spence jr returned after a long period of inactivity, to defeat by unanimous decision Danny Garcia and defend their welter belts from CMB and the FIB, on December 5.
While Crawford defended his WBO welterweight crown with a knockout in just 4 episodes against the former champion of 147, the English Kell Brook.
