Andre Ward Eager To See How Terence Crawford Deals With Errol Spence Jr’s Pressure

Former American boxer Andre Ward cannot wait to see how Terence Crawford (38-0, 29 KOs) will counter the pressure of having Errol Spence Jr. as his opponent on November 19.

Though the fight has not been officially set – reports said both parties have agreed to material terms – both boxers have said they want the fight to happen.

Crawford has never shared the ring with Spence in his 14-year professional career. The athletes whom Crawford has defeated aren’t on the same level as Spence in terms of talent and punching power.

The WBO champion is yet to face a formidable opponent in welterweights like Jaron ‘Boots’ Ennis and Vergil Ortiz Jr.

The fighters are on course to meet Crawford, but the Nebraska native would move up to 154 before they make up their mind.

“I’m going to say this, and both fighters know this already. Neither fighter has ever fought a fighter like the other,” Ward commented on the matchup.

“You got all the years of build-up and the things that have been said, and things obviously heating up again because the potential for the fight to happen is fresh and new coming off with Spence coming off the Ugas win.

Ward also weighed in on Spence Jr’s critics who believe that he has only one style of fighting which may go against him at one point in his career, but Ward believes otherwise.

“As an analyst and a fan, I want to see how Bud deals with the steady pressure of Errol. People say Errol fights one way, but it’s effective,” the former boxer claimed.

“It’s a reason why he’s breaking down and beating a lot of great dudes and why he has the resume that he has.”
