Crawford Vs. Spence Rematch Could Happen ‘Next Year’ – Says Stephen Espinoza

Stephen Espinoza has opened up on when a possible rematch between Terence Crawford and Errol Spence Jr. may happen.

Following Spence’s defeat, he made it clear that he was intent on having a rematch at 154 pounds before the end of the year.

That showed the former unified welterweight champion’s desire to set things right after having been dominated in a one-sided fight.

Spence hit the canvas three times before the referee stopped the fight in the ninth round. However, Espinoza felt that Spence might need some time off in order to regroup.

And if that were to happen, then the likelihood of a fight happening at the end of 2023 is unlikely.

“When someone takes a tough fight like that, you want to make sure you’re not rushing them back. Maybe early next year. It’s either late next year or early next year if it happens,” Espinoza

Nevertheless, delaying the rematch may work against Spence. Crawford has his eyes set on making history at 154 pounds, as fights with Tim Tszyu and Jermell Charlo potentially await.

And since Spence offers nothing by way of a belt, a rematch may not end up happening. So for now, it is too early to tell.
