Brian McIntyre Considers Errol Spence Jr. ‘Something Special’
Although the world is looking forward to seeing the fight between Errol Spence Jr. (28-0, 22 KOs) and Terence Crawford (38-0, 29 KOs), Crawford’s longtime trainer Brain McIntyre doesn’t want to believe the hype.
The two fighters are regarded as the two best fighters in the welterweight division in the last five years. With Spence adding a third 147-pound title to his cabinet, the Dallas native is looking forward to his battle with Crawford.
“Obviously Spence is something special because of where he’s at in this game,” said McIntyre during an interview with BoxingScene.com.
“But I know Bud. I know how much Bud wants to fight Spence and he wants to conquer the 147-pound division. He wants to be the undisputed king at the 147-pound division.”
Crawford will return to action in December when he will encounter David Avanesyan in a voluntary defence. If he wins this bout, the 35-year-old will go for unification with Spence in 2023.
On the other hand, McIntyre believes the New York native Spence is not like any other fighter in the welterweight division. His exceptional skills have motivated Crawford so much that he can end the 32-year-old’s winning streak.
“It is a tough task for a fighter but you better believe me, mentally, physically, Bud is ready.”
