Crawford Personally Calls Out Spence For Fight
Two of the top welterweights in boxing have yet to face one another. Terence Crawford has been eying a bout with Errol Spence Jr. for quite some time, and is tired of waiting.
Crawford (36-0), the WBO Welterweight Champion, recently talked to Chris Mannix about facing the WBC Welterweight Champion. He discussed the drama that has come with the talks, and how he is doing everything to try and get Spence’s (26-0) attention.
“I hit him up a couple of times,” Crawford stated. “We got on FaceTime and spoke briefly. It was just us talking about making the fight, that was pretty much it. And I told him I was going to f*ck him up.
“I truly feel like when we fight I’ll f*ck him up.”
Crawford made his pro debut in 2008. “Bud” won the WBO Welterweight Title back in June 2018, beating Jeff Horn via TKO. The 32-year-old has defended the title three times, most recently against Egidijus Kavaliauskas back in December. He won the bout via TKO.
Winning the IBF Welterweight Title in 2017 off of Kell Brook, Spence has defended the title four times. He beat Shawn Porter in September via split decision in a Match of the Year candidate, winning the WBC Welterweight Title in the process.
This is not the first time Crawford has requested a fight against Spence. They continue to trade jabs with one another on social media. A bout all depends on the health of Spence. “The Truth” was involved in an accident where his car flipped over after speeding. Not wearing a seatbelt, Spence was ejected from the car. He suffered cuts to his face and damage to his teeth.
So what’s been the hold up homie? When I came to the division y’all all said I had to get a title first. Now you changed yo mind and talking about wrong side of the street. So I’m just here for another excuse what’s up.
