Errol Spence Jr Says He’s Fighting ‘Somebody Else’

Spence-Crawford was supposed to happen on November 19, but it's likely to happen in February or March.

Errol Spence Jr isn’t waiting around either. 

The WBC, WBA and IBF welterweight champion announced that he has plans to fight someone other than WBO welterweight titleholder Terence Crawford. But, after that, he wants to resume negotiations for an anticipated undisputed title fight – this time in person. 

“Facts is I’m fighting somebody else. [Crawford] is too but a tune up,” Spence said. 

“… All money not good money. I asked him where the 50 mill coming from who is over the hedge fund/ putting the money up he couldn’t tell me. 

“I think we all need to just meet in person.” 

The undefeated Desoto, Texas native referred to Crawford’s claim from this week where he revealed that representatives from two unnamed hedge funds offered him and Spence a guaranteed purse of $25 million.  

But Premier Boxing Champion founder Al Haymon – who manages Spence – wasn’t interested. 

Spence also explained his side of the story about Crawford not agreeing to all terms for their potential fight. 

“He claims that his concerns over having transparency on the revenues and expenses for the fight was the big issue that killed the negotiations. That’s cap. My side agreed to show him everything,” Spence added. 

“The draft included specific provisions that required that both of us would receive “a complete and full” “written detailed accounting” showing all “pay-per-view sales of the Event and the then status of all Net Revenues received and all Event Expenses incurred and paid. If I’m not telling the truth, tell him post the draft. 

“He talking about he didn’t have a guarantee & he was taking all the risk. [Motherf—–], I didn’t have a guarantee just a higher percentage. He said I wasn’t at the table or [no]where to be found. For what I knew what I was projected to get & happy with it to be honest that hedge fund deal was for your benefit lol. 

“I think we all need to just meet in person.” 

Spence’s next opponent will reportedly be announced in the coming weeks. WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman previously said that Keith Thurman would be the next mandatory. But WBA’s Eimantas Stanionis or IBF’s Jaron “Boots” Ennis could also be called on next. 

Crawford will face ranked welterweight David Avanesyan in a stay-busy fight on December 10 in his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska.
