Terence Crawford vs. Errol Spence Jr. set to determine welterweight supremacy
The upcoming showdown between Terence Crawford and Errol Spence Jr. holds great significance for both fighters, as it will settle the long-standing debate surrounding their capabilities in the welterweight division.
Despite calls for this matchup for years, obstacles such as rival promoters have hindered the possibility of the fight becoming a reality.
Terence Crawford showcased his skills with a spectacular sixth-round knockout of David Avanesyan in December, further solidifying his reputation as one of the top welterweights. Meanwhile, Spence, 33, made a successful comeback in April 2022, defeating Yordenis Ugas via a 10th-round TKO to claim his third welterweight title.
This victory marked Spence's return after undergoing surgery to repair a detached retina in August 2021, an injury that caused him to withdraw from a highly anticipated bout against Manny Pacquiao.
