Errol Spence Jr Has Two More Fights At Welterweight
Errol Spence Jr said he’s not going to be in the welterweight division forever.
Spence told Fight Hype that he plans on moving up to the 154-pound division – super welterweight or also called light middleweight – and will chase the world titles there. But first, he’s aiming to finish unifying the 147-pound division by defeating WBA champion Yordenis Ugas and WBO champion Terence Crawford.
“I’ll probably fight two more times at 147,” said Errol Spence Jr. to Fighthype. “I feel I have the better skills and the better talent than him [Yordenis Ugas].
“… It’s definitely possible,” Spence added when asked if a fight with Crawford can happen this year.
Depending on if and when Spence would move up a weight class, there he would find unified champion Jermell Charlo and WBO champion Brian Castano.
Charlo and Castano are currently slated for a rematch in an undisputed unification bout on May 14.
Spence could meet the winner of that fight, but he may have to wait for overdue challenger Tim Tszyu who is likely to get his shot first.
Aside from Ugas and Crawford, Jaron “Boots” Ennis has been climbing the welterweight ranks. Spence, however, isn’t interested in facing him, but hopes the 24-year-old makes it to the top soon.
Spence will fight Ugas in less than two weeks on April 16 in his native Texas. He has not fought since defeating Danny Garcia in 2020.
