Errol Spence Jr Says Terence Crawford-Jermell Charlo Not Happening, But Interested In Gervonta Davis-Crawford

WBO welterweight champ Terence Crawford has been naming some potential opponents.

Despite being sidelined after a recent car accident, Errol Spence Jr has been in the headlines for comments he’s made about pending opponent Terence Crawford.  

The IBF, WBA and WBC welterweight champion, Spence, told ES News earlier this week that a fight between Crawford and undisputed super welterweight champion Jermell Charlo isn’t happening. 

“He ain’t fighting no Jermell,” said Spence Jr to ESNEWS . 

“If I can’t fight him, he ain’t fighting Jermell. If I can’t fight him [Crawford], he’s out of the loop. It don’t matter what he did. It ain’t happening. 

“It’s clickbait. He can talk all he wants; I guarantee it’s not going to happen.” 

Following Crawford’s knockout win over David Avanesyan, the WBO welterweight champion said that if he can’t get a fight with Spence, he already knows who he wants next. 

“At 147, if I can’t get the fight that I desire, then my career will start at 154 with the hopes of landing that big fight with [undisputed junior middleweight champion Jermell] Charlo. 

“All I see is him riding off on the names of the PBC fighters,” Charlo responded. “He ain’t even trying to fight nobody.” 

“That would be the guy that I want [Jermell], but for whatever reason, if he don’t be victorious, then I want to go after the guy that beat him,” Crawford said. 

Charlo is set to face due challenger Tim Tszyu on January 28. 

But Spence added that he would be interested in seeing Crawford go toe-to-toe against lightweight Gervonta “Tank” Davis. 

“… It would be a good fight. Tank can hit,” Spence said, reacting to  Davis saying he can knockout Crawford.  

“Tank has the kind of power where he’ll knock anybody out if he catches them clean. I think it’ll be a good a– fight. I rock with Tank on that, anyway.” 

Davis reportedly expressed interest in moving up and fighting Crawford, but the welterweight champ doubted that it’s a matchup that would be made soon. 

“Everybody says what they’re going to do, but Tank is in his weight class [135] for a reason, and I don’t see him coming up to 147 to fight me no time soon,” said Crawford. 

Davis is facing Hector Luis Garcia in a tune-up fight before colliding with anticipated lightweight Ryan Garcia. 

As for Spence-Crawford, the fight remains in the air as Spence is delaying his ring return to sometime between April, May and June due to a recent car accident where he was reportedly the victim.
