'Canelo Got Whooped'- Errol Spence Jr. Reacts to Canelo's Support for Crawford in Spence vs Crawford
Errol Spence Jr is not pleased with Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez’s prediction that Terrence Crawford will defeat him in their upcoming Spence vs Crawford fight in Las Vegas . The highly anticipated undisputed title bout between the two undefeated welterweight champions is drawing near, scheduled for July 29 at the T-Mobile Arena.
Various opinions and forecasts have been circulating ahead of the fight, and Canelo, a Mexican multi-weight world champion, also gave his prediction. However, Spence was quick to respond, dismissing Canelo’s prediction by stating that he is not God and highlighting Canelo’s past failed prediction when he backed himself to beat Dmitry Bivol but suffered a loss instead.
“He got it wrong, cause he not God. And he backed himself to beat [Dmitry] Bivol and he got his ass whooped.”
For Spence, this fight represents the biggest challenge of his career. While he has faced tough opponents like Kell Brook and Shawn Porter in his division, taking on Crawford will be a significant test.
Both fighters have had periods of inactivity recently. Spence’s last fight was in April 2022 against Yordenis Ugas, and before that, he had an 18-month hiatus following his win over Danny Garcia in December 2020, during which he was recovering from a severe car accident that jeopardized his fighting future.
Crawford’s last fight was in December of the previous year, a sixth-round knockout of David Avanesyan, which followed his knockout victory over Shawn Porter in November 2021.
As the Spence vs Crawford fight night approaches, fans and experts await eagerly to see whose predictions will be proven right or wrong.
The Spence vs Crawford fight will be broadcasted on TNT Sports in the UK, with undercard action expected to start around 1 AM and the main event ring walks around 4 AM. In the US, the fight will be a Showtime PPV event.
