'We've got to do it again' - says Spence during the post fight interview of Spence vs Crawford

Terence Crawford delivered an outstanding performance against Errol Spence Jr in Spence vs Crawford at Las Vegas, securing the undisputed welterweight championship in a dominant display.

In the ninth round, Crawford unleashed a flurry of punches that left Spence wobbling, prompting the referee to step in and stop the fight. In the Spence vs Crawford, Crawford scored three knockdowns, the first of which came in just the second round, with the next two occurring in Round 7.

Despite Spence’s bravery throughout the bout, Crawford’s skill and superiority were evident, leaving his opponent with little chance to turn the tide.

After the fight, Crawford showed respect to Spence and expressed his willingness for a rematch, acknowledging the support from fans for both fighters.

“It was a good stoppage. I was on the verge. The referee did what he was supposed to do to protect the fighter.

“If the fight happens again I am pretty sure the support will come out again for both of us.”

Spence also expressed his openness to a rematch, believing he could perform better in a second encounter.

“We’ve got to do it again. I would be a lot better.”

With the victory, Crawford not only added the WBC, WBA, and IBF titles to his existing WBO belt but also extended his knockout streak to 11 matches, making it the second-longest active stretch.

At 35 years old, Crawford has already achieved success in multiple weight divisions, having won titles in super lightweight and lightweight before moving up to welterweight in 2018. He became the first male boxer to achieve undisputed champion status in two divisions during the four-belt era.

Reflecting on his journey, Crawford shared that he had once only dreamed of becoming a world champion. He overcame skepticism during his rise but has since proven himself as a remarkable athlete.

“I only dreamed of being a world champion. I’m an over-achiever. Nobody believed in me when I was coming up, but I made everybody a believer. I want to thank Spence and his team because without him none of this would have been possible.”

Spence admitted that Crawford was the better fighter that night, commending his opponent’s powerful jab and impeccable timing.

“He was just better tonight,” Spence said. “I make no excuses. He was throwing a harder jab. He was timing with his jab, and he had his timing down on point.”

The Spence vs Crawford event drew a star-studded crowd, with notable personalities like Cardi B, Andre 3000, Mark Walhberg, Damian Lillard, and Jerry Jones in attendance. Boxing legends such as Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, Floyd Mayweather Jr., and Manny Pacquiao also graced the occasion.

As Crawford made his entrance to the ring, Eminem’s song “Lose Yourself” played, setting the stage for an electrifying showdown in front of a sold-out crowd of 19,990 at T-Mobile Arena.

Terence Crawford’s victory in Las Vegas marks a historic moment in boxing, solidifying his place as one of the sport’s great champions. The welterweight division now recognizes him as the undisputed king, and fans eagerly anticipate the next chapter in his illustrious career.
