Crawford on Spence Fight: 'I’m Going to Win' – The Clash for Undisputed Welterweight Crown

The reigning WBO welterweight champion, Terence Crawford, is confidently predicting his victory over Errol Spence Jr in their upcoming showdown. Crawford while talking about his Spence fight, displayed confidence, backed by his record of 39 wins and no losses, including 30 by knockout. He believes his many years of studying Spence’s boxing style will give him the upper hand in their anticipated fight. This welterweight clash will be aired on Showtime PPV from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Crawford on Spence fight often emphasizes the rematch clause in their agreement. This clause permits the defeated boxer to demand a rematch, irrespective of the outcome of their July 29th bout. Meanwhile, Spence is sure his performance against Crawford will be such that a rematch would be unnecessary. He predicts that Crawford will refuse a rematch as the encounter will likely drain him of his competitive spirit.

In the wake of the Spence fight, Crawford made reference to past performances of Spence’s previous rivals. Fighters such as Yordenis Ugas, Danny Garcia, and Shawn Porter found it challenging to regain their previous status after battling Spence.

Crawford on Spence fight, highlighted the magnitude of the event during the All Access: Spence vs. Crawford, Episode 2:

“This is the fight that everybody has been yearning for years. It’s one of the biggest fights in the past decade that I can think of. So yeah, it’s pretty big. Since I was a little kid, my dad always told me you don’t have no friends in the ring, and you don’t play boxing. So when I go in the ring, it’s simple. I’m going to win.”

Crawford’s previous victories over lesser-known fighters raise questions about his performance against Spence, a well-respected contender. Crawford on Spence fight, stated his competitive nature:

“This is the biggest fight of my career today to date, and you’re not about to be like, ‘Oh, man, I beat you. No. I’m going to be like, ‘I beat you’ because that’s how competitive I am. It’s not fun to me, losing. That’s what makes the game fun, winning. I’m prepared to do whatever I have to do on July 29th to make sure that I bring all those titles back to Nebraska.”

Crawford further dispelled rumors of dodging this fight during a commentary on the Spence match:

“This is a fight that I’ve wanted for a long time. This is a fight that a lot of people have been saying that I’ve been running from, scared of. We’re here now, and I’m going to show the world that I’m the best fighter in the world.”

It is uncertain whether Crawford will decide to engage Spence directly, like Ugas, Porter, and Garcia did, considering Spence’s evident dominance in the ring. On the other hand, Spence believes a unique quality separates certain boxers from others, stating:

“It’s something that certain fighters got, and other fighters don’t got, and it shows in the ring.”

As they prepare to fight for welterweight supremacy, both undefeated fighters exhibit immense confidence. In his final commentary, Crawford on Spence fight, talked about the fight as an opportunity to solidify his status as one of the world’s best fighters. Meanwhile, Spence views the match as his chance to prove himself as the world’s top pound-for-pound fighter, stating:

“I have all the ability, and I’m going to beat one of the best fighters in the world. That will settle the deal of who is the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world once I beat Terence Crawford.”
