A few days back, WBO champion Terence Crawford beat Kell Brook to defend his welterweight title. Now, it’s time for Errol Spence Jr. to do the same against Danny Garcia in his upcoming title (WBC & IBF) defense on December 5.
Despite avoiding an in-ring clash for so many years, Crawford and Spence Jr. have been contrasted by analysts and pundits for various reasons.
Both of them are unbeaten world champions and technical elites. So, it’s hard to pick one of them in a match, especially when they have hit their prime. However, Terence Crawford might not be interested in the contest.
‘Bud’ recently stated that he doesn’t need Errol Spence Jr. in his career. This may come as a source of disappointment for the fans. However, ‘The Truth’ lashed back in an interview just before his high-voltage clash against former champion Garcia.
In an interaction with EsNews, Errol Spence Jr talked about several things going around his boxing career, one being his much-anticipated fight against Terence Crawford.
‘The Truth’ appeared vexed about Crawford’s comments and didn’t bother to respond much. He said, “If you don’t need me, stop talking then.”
He further validated his claim with a repetitive statement and added, “Don’t need me? Stop talking man.”
Errol Spence Jr. vs Terence Crawford- Who is the bigger puncher?
Both the unbeaten southpaws have intense knockout abilities which they have showcased for years. While Crawford is more of an athletic counter puncher, Errol Spence Jr. knows when to close the call.
It will be alluring to see them go against each other. But, their difference in range can play a pivotal role in determining the outcome. Errol Spence Jr can take a massive step and move closer to a fight against Crawford should he retain his belts against Danny Garcia.
After December 5, both the welterweight champions can look forward to a title unification matchup if their promoters can agree to terms. If not, fans will continue to compare them in several debates and assumptions.
Who do you think will be the winner in a potential fight between Errol Spence Jr. and Terence Crawford?
