Terence Crawford vs. Errol Spence Rematch Unlikely, Opening the Door for Canelo Alvarez Showdown

In a surprising turn of events, the much-anticipated rematch between Terence Crawford and Errol Spence seems to be slipping away, leaving Crawford in search of a new opponent.

Crawford’s sensational victory over Spence last July, where he claimed the undisputed WBA, WBC, IBF, and WBO welterweight world titles, left little appetite for a second meeting. Despite a pre-existing rematch clause, Spence activated it shortly after the defeat, but recent developments suggest the bout is facing significant delays.

Renowned boxing journalist Dan Rafael shared on the Stephen A Smith Show, “It seems as though the rematch with Spence is not going to take place. [This is] for a variety of reasons, including the fact Spence is on the sidelines after having recent cataract surgery. So Crawford’s in need of an opponent.”

With the rematch on hold, the spotlight shifts to potential new opponents for Crawford. Reports from ESPN Mexico hint at a possible blockbuster matchup with Canelo Alvarez in 2024. While Canelo had previously downplayed the speculation due to the weight difference, recent developments suggest a shift in perspective.

Canelo is rumored to defend his undisputed super-middleweight world titles against Jermall Charlo in May, paving the way for a showdown with Crawford three divisions below him in September.

The boxing world awaits confirmation on whether this exciting matchup will indeed come to fruition, marking a potential highlight for the sport in 2024.
