Spence Compares Crawford Fight To Manny-Floyd
Errol Spence Jr sees the depth of the welterweight division, and is not interested in chasing down Terence Crawford for unification.
Unlike Manny Pacquiao attending his fight against Mikey Garcia earlier this month, Spence will not make the trip to Madison Square Garden on April 20th, as Crawford defends his WBO title against Amir Khan.
“It’s just gonna take everybody to cooperate,” Spence said of the issues that would separate the two from facing off later this year.
“I mean, we got [Shawn] Porter. He say he wants the fight. And then we got [Keith] Thurman, who has a belt. And then, you know, the most difficult fight to be made is the Terence Crawford fight. So, you know, I don’t know how that’s gonna get made. I mean, it’s for Bob to talk to, you know, my management, Al, and they come to an agreement. But, you know, the Manny Pacquiao-Floyd fight was made, so, you know, I think it’ll happen.”
With Pacquiao leaving Spence off of a poll of potential opponents, it seems Spence will look towards WBC champion Shawn Porter.
