Floyd Mayweather Said October Date For Errol Spence Jr Vs. Terence Crawford Is ‘Not True’
Floyd Mayweather shut down rumors about the Errol Spence Jr vs Terence Crawford undisputed clash.
The newly inducted Hall of Famer cut off the rumored October date for Spence vs Crawford during a press conference with MMA star Mikuru Asakura, who he will face in an exhibition match in September.
Last week, ESPN’s Mike Coppinger said the negotiations are still ongoing, but the undisputed welterweight championship is targeted for October. Mayweather said otherwise.
“…I seen, if I am not mistaken, someone threw out a date or a month,” Mayweather said.
“Not true. When it is true y’all will hear it from me first or from Fighthype.”
Spence and Crawford have both made it clear that they’re going for each other next.
Spence holds the WBC, WBA and IBF welterweight titles while Crawford dons the WBO strap.
Crawford had been calling Spence out for a while now, but it became even more vocal after he left Top Rank following his TKO victory against Shawn Porter in November 2021.
The WBO champion said he left Top Rank because they were never able to secure fights that he wanted, including Spence and now retired Manny Pacquiao.
As for Spence, he is represented by PBC and is coming off a TKO win over former WBA champion Yordenis Ugas on April 16.
Two days later, Mayweather vocalized how he would “love” to sign Crawford.
On Monday, Crawford posted a photo with Mayweather and congratulated him, adding, “Can’t wait till it’s my turn.”
