Will Terence Crawford Fight Errol Spence?
Same here, I have gotten to the point where I don't think it will happen.
Yes but only if Arum gets dementia to agree it and they agree to pay Crawford an unrealistic sum of money to fight a fight that only hardcore boxing fans really care about.
At least that's how it seems to me based on recent behaviour. Maybe something will change, Crawford maybe starts to look old and so Arum decides to cash him out if a good offer is made from Spence or Crawford finally realises he needs to compromise if he's ever to get the type of fights that will define his legacy and then elevate him to that next level where he can start demanding more money.
Imo, Spence is the only guy Crawford's willing to fight w/ a pulse, but Spence is ducking Crawford.
Crawford is not interested in meaningful fights. He will fight anyone who's not ranked in the top 10 of his division.
Based on resumes and Crawford’s whole career, wtf makes you think Spence is ducking???
Spence is tailor made for Crawford. And Spence is the one who was talking all this garbage about other side of the street, A-side this, A-side that, he's got plenty of options, etc..
And when they came to face to face, Spence seemed rattled and shook while Bud was cool as a cucumber.
Give up on that fight
Both have too many demands to let it happen
Course he will and win comfortably. However, broken matchmaking in boxing will KO this fight.
Spence is taking like that because if you haven’t noticed, that’s how boxing is now. Your saying Spence is so scared, that’s why he’s been in there with every elite fighter thrown at him?
Otherwise, sorry, he had made his title defense fight vs Spence Jr for very huge money on ppvs not vs Mean Machine from ol bob stable who looks that had pushed up too early and didn't looked enough good in his last fights before this.
If Crawford had assumed in reality that he might beat Spence Jr easily, he most likely had agreed to fight vs him even for 100k not alone 1m purse: to turn into a champ with 3 belts and cash out for example with fight vs Pacman.
Instead of talking about Pacman fight , Spence fight and in real life fighting vs Mean Machine.
I personally think Crawford beats Spence too and at the time when they came face to face it did indeed looked like Spence was making excuses for the fight not happening.
But since then one man is talking while the other is fighting meaningful opposition. Even if what you say is true and Spence is ducking Crawford, Crawford is doing bugger all to force the fight and make a claim that he's really the better man.
I said he's ducking Crawford, not anyone with a pulse.
I don't care about intents and claims.
Crawford had talked about possible big fights and he fought vs Machine nor Pacman or Spence, now vs Pacman will fight Spence not Crawford.
If I might believe that Crawford didn't liked possible purse split vs Spence Jr then why not fight vs Pacman even for 1m? Pacman is small for 147 lbs division and 42 y.o ring rusty while okey, Spence maybe is not enough old and is large boxer for 147 lbs division. Too risky?
Most likely Crawford will have next Mean Machine type opponent or bob will attempt to sell him bulked up to 147 lbs Taylor from 140 lbs division for beatup in US.
