Tim Bradley Suggests Canelo Might Face Spence In Third Fight Under PBC Deal

Tim Bradley has not ruled out a fight between Canelo Alvarez and Errol Spence Jr

Alvarez has two fights left on his PBC deal following the Jermell Charlo win to retain his Undisputed Super Middleweight Title. Reports indicate that Charlo’s brother, Jermall Charlo, and Terence Crawford are the next two fights, respectively. David Benavidez, however, is the name being wanted by boxing fans. The WBC Super Middleweight Interim Champion has been mandatory for over a year. A fight on Cinco De Mayo Weekend or Mexican Independence Day is possible. But if that fight fails, Bradley didn’t rule out a Spence instead. 

“Don’t be surprised if he fights Errol Spence for that third fight. I’m saying he’s gonna fight Spence next,” Bradley stated

A Spence or Crawford fight will do good business, but they are not fully-fledged 168-pounders like Benavidez. Crawford would have to move up three weight classes to face Canelo. Since Alvarez easily beat Jermell Charlo when he moved up from 154 pounds, Crawford has a tough task ahead of him. Spence is a much bigger fighter than 147, but his physical condition may no longer be the same.

He took a one-sided beating against Crawford, which included three knockdowns on his way to being stopped in the ninth round. Following the fight, he had cataract surgery over his right eye to address some vision problems. That is without mentioning his prior two car accidents, one of which resulted in a detached retina. Boxing fans responded by demanding the Benavidez fight.
