Spence Hints At Retirement After Next Fight

Errol Spence Jr. could retire after his next fight following reports he will box Sebastian Fundora at 154 pounds in October. 

Spence has not been in the ring since last year after getting stopped by Terence Crawford. He was dropped three times as Crawford became the first Undisputed Welterweight Champion of the four-belt era. Talks over a rematch broke down. Spence then underwent cataract surgery on his right eye following the damage sustained in the Crawford fight. 

A win over Fundora gives him the WBC belt at 154. The WBO belt, which Fundora also holds, is likely to be vacated or stripped. Victory for Spence makes him a world champion in another weight class, which is the perfect response to the Crawford loss. Bud will box Israil Madrimov on August 3 for the WBA Belt at 154. If Spence and Crawford win, there is a narrative for a rematch. But based on Spence’s post, which has now been deleted, it could be his final fight.
