Spence vs. Crawford – New York Presser

Errol Spence Jr. and Terence Crawford went head-to-head during their second press tour at the Palladium Times Square, New York, ahead of their highly-anticipated fight scheduled for July 29th, 2023.

The pair kicked off their first press tour event at ‘The Beverly Hills Hotel,’ on June 13th, 2023, as the pair exchanged verbal blows. Crawford mocked Spence’s claim of being the ‘big fish’ by vowing him ‘suffocate’ him.

In response, Spence questioned Crawford’s resume at 140 and 147 lbs by stating that he had not fought any top-tier competition. And in doing so, he expressed his intention to ‘smoke’ the WBO welterweight champion.

The victor of this epic showdown will be crowned the first welterweight undisputed champion in the era of four belts. With that being said, both fighters went head to head once again with some verbal sparring.
