The number one and number three pound-for-pound boxers are headed on a collision course! After much debate, wait, and posturing, Errol Spence Jr. (28-0, 22 KOs) and Terence Crawford (38-0, 29 KOs) agreed on material terms for a mega-fight. Set to take place in Las Vegas on November 19, the fight will be finalized once the lawyers cross all the T’s and dot the I’s. Once that’s done, the welterweight title unification bout will officially be on!
Crawford has agreed to take the smaller end of the revenue split. The proposed contract also contains a rematch clause. If invoked, the winner of the first fight will receive the bigger portion of the split. Spence holds the WBA, WBC, and IBF titles, while Crawford is the WBO title holder at 147 pounds.
The fact that Al Haymon of Premier Boxing Champions no longer represents Crawford but was able to help deliver this fight is huge! Crawford went his own way after retiring Shawn Porter in November. Crawford is promoting this fight under his TBC Promotions in conjunction with Spence’s Man Down Promotions. PBC will handle the pay-per-view aspect of the fight. While we’re still in a wait-and-see holding pattern, this is a monumental step in the right direction.
