Terence Crawford wants Spence, then Jermell Charlo


Via Chris Williams: Terence ‘Bud’ Crawford wants to take on Errol Spence Jr in May for the undisputed 147 lb title, followed by a second quadruple title fight with 154 lb king Jermell Charlo in head-to-head matches. in 2023.

Crawford may not make it through this weekend’s fight with David Avanesyan during their fight on BLK Prime PPV in Omaha, Nebraska.

It’s been over a year since Crawford last fought, and he looked pitiful in front of the washed-up janitor Shawn Porter. Avanesyan hits harder than Porter and has fewer miles on the odometer.

  • Jermell Charlo
  • Jermall Charlo

If Crawford is ready to play, he can face Spence, Jermell Charloand my twin brother Jermall Charlo. That would be an ideal situation, but given Crawford’s lack of large size and advanced age, he is likely to fall during the first test against Spence.

Crawford isn’t interested in going into a midway fight to introduce him to the Showtime Top Boxing Champion audience with the likes of Rashidi Ellis or Josesito Lopez so that fans who aren’t used to watching him will get a chance to meet him before he plays against Spence or Jermell.

Unfortunately, Crawford’s talk of fighting Spence and Charlo might just be a pipe dream on his part because he’s an unpopular belt holder at 147, a failed to establish himself as a star despite winning world titles in three tournaments.

Charlo (35-1-1, 19 KOs) will likely expect Crawford, 35, to win his four titles by trying to hit the required spot. That won’t happen overnight and it could take him several years, even in the best case scenario.

Jermell Charlo Contingency Plan for Crawford

“I think it’s a 50-50 chance with Jermell,‘ Terence ‘Bud’ Crawford said to thaboxingvoice when asked if there’s a chance for him to take on undisputed middleweight champion Jermell Charlo if he can’t set up a bout with Errol Spence Jr.

“He is an angry man, and he can be demanding. [a fight against Crawford]. He can go to Al [Haymon] or Showtime or his handlers and claim it and say this is what he wants and this is what he stands for.

“I think Errol is more passive, more relaxed. He lets Al handle his career the way he wants to handle his career.

Crawford wants to play Spence in May

“I don’t believe in having to overcome Josesito Lopez or Rashidi [Ellis] to get to Spence. I will believe after this fight [Avanesyan]We’re going back to the drawing board, and hopefully, we can secure a fight with Spence and me.

“If you [Spence] don’t fight, if he doesn’t have anything arranged we can start right away,” Crawford said when asked how long he can fight Errol after his battle with Avanesyan.

“Fingers interlaced, we can secure a date, and we can move on. Of course, I feel like I can do Errol and Jermell in parallel. With the right timeframe, yes, 100%.

“Hopefully around May,” Crawford said when asked when he wants to fight Spence. “Hopefully we can get it done before or around May. That would be great.”
