Mike Coppinger had initially reported that the bout would finally go ahead, with both fighters having the right to a rematch clause.
And in doing so, finally putting the division’s two best fighters against each other in a fight that has been long in the making.
And now it has been confirmed by both fighters who took to social media to make things official.
“Finally giving the fans what they want! This one a throwback fight on paper but it could be a one-sided ass whooping, one of the biggest fights in the century,” Spence
“The wait is over. Game time. Errol Spence-Terence Crawford, July 29, Las Vegas, Nevada. Everybody come out, show support and watch me fry this fish,” Crawford
And given the hype surrounding Spence vs Crawford, the social media reaction suggests that further records could be broken.
