'Spence Activated His Rematch But We Don’t Have a Date' - Bomac Confirms!

Terence Crawford and Errol Spence are reportedly gearing up for a rematch.

Bryan ‘Bomac’ McIntyre, Crawford’s coach, recently disclosed to Pro Boxing Fans that Spence has invoked the rematch clause. Although confirmed, the exact date of the match remains uncertain. It could potentially be scheduled in the last part of this year or early in 2024.

“Spence activated his rematch,” said McIntyre following a question. “That’s confirmed, but we don’t have a date and stuff like that.”

While the location hasn’t been finalized, the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, which hosted their initial bout on July 29, is a top contender, with the MGM Grand Garden Arena also in the mix.

The forthcoming face-off is expected to be at junior middleweight (154-pound cap). Previously, Spence has mentioned his struggle to meet the welterweight limit, hinting that his initial bout with Crawford would mark his final fight at 147 pounds.

Their previous encounter was among the most awaited bouts in recent times. Crawford showcased his prowess by knocking Spence down thrice, eventually securing a win in the ninth round. This victory was significant for Crawford, not only maintaining his unblemished record (40-0, 31 KOs) but also earning him the title of Ring Magazine welterweight champion.

In addition, Crawford unified the championship, integrating Spence’s WBC, IBF, and WBA titles with his existing WBO title.

Despite his commendable track record, Crawford was only slightly favored over Spence in their initial meeting.

After his defeat to Crawford, Spence, hailing from Desoto, Texas, now has a record of 28-1, with 22 KOs.
