One of the biggest fights in boxing is finally going down as Errol Spence Jr. and Terence Crawford battle it out in Las Vegas on July 29. It will be a battle to determine the undisputed welterweight champion.
The fight between WBC, IBF and WBA champion Spence and WBO champion Crawford will be in the T-Mobile Arena and air on Showtime PPV in the U.S.
The bout is years in the making. Spence is tied to Premier Boxing Champions and Al Haymon, while Crawford was with Bob Arum’s Top Rank before becoming a free agent. Negotiations for a fight heated up in 2022 but quickly dissipated following various demands by both camps.
Spence, who beat Kell Brook (KO 11, IBF), Shawn Porter (SD 12, WBC), and Yordenis Ugas (TKO 10, WBA) for gold, last fought in April 2022 and is finally ready to fight.
“Terence is a great fighter and I’m gonna break another great fighter’s will,” Spence said. “Mentally and physically, I’m gonna dominate and come out on top… This is gonna be a one-sided a– whooping. It’s gonna take a few rounds, because he’s a tough dude. But everyone gets broke and we’re gonna break him down.”
Crawford, a former undisputed super lightweight champion, has held the WBO welterweight title since 2018, beating Jeff Horn via TKO. Defending the belt six times, “Bud” last fought in December 2022 under the BLK Prime platform. At 35, his resume speaks for itself. He’s only looking to add to it.
“A win shows that I’m the greatest fighter of the era,” Crawford said. “No man has captured undisputed in two weight classes. That solidifies me as the greatest fighter of this era.”
The two finally faced off in Los Angeles, and will continue their U.S. tour in New York.
