After his win over Yordanis Ugas in April After becoming a three-belt Welterweight champion, Spence made it clear who he wanted next.
“I want the next Terence Crawford. That’s the fight I want. I came to get that damn belt! “
The belt in question is the WBO title held by ‘Bud’ Crawford. Nebraskan has been the champion since 2018 when he beat Jeff Horn to become the three-weight world champion.
Five successful defenses followed including his most recent match against Shawn Porter ‘Showtime’ previous November. Crawford stopped his challenger for ten rounds, leading to Porter announcing his retirement to the media during his post-match press conference.
If Spence-Crawford is officially announced then it is expected to land on Showtime in the US. Sports president of the network Stephen Espinoza also made positive noises about the fight last week in an interview with FightHype.
