In boxing, the title of absolute world champion is becoming fashionable.
The fight between Terence Crawford and Errol Spence is one of the most suffered in professional boxing. Two famous Americans wanted to meet in the ring for five years, but every time something got in the way. The promoters could not find a common language, the television channels did not give the necessary money, and once Spence had a serious accident, he miraculously survived. Boxing fans had already given up believing that Terence and Errol would ever fight, but then there was news on ESPN.
A respected American TV channel announced that the third and fourth numbers of the P4P ranking will continue to have a head-to-head match! On July 29, Crawford and Spence in Las Vegas will determine who deserves the title of undisputed welterweight world champion. Let’s remember that Crawford owns the WBA belt, and his potential rival owns the IBF, WBC and WBO titles. I am glad that fights for the title of absolute world champions are becoming a trend: a few days ago, such a duel was held between Vasily Lomachenko and Devin Haney, where the American took over.
Lomachenko can’t retire! The fight with Haney is the main test.
“We have the biggest fight ahead of us. At least in welterweight history. And that’s why I think there will be more than one fight. I don’t know for sure, but I’m assuming the contract will include a retaliation clause. And for both fighters, and not for anyone. Terence has never had an opponent on Spence’s level and Errol has never had an opponent on Crawford’s level. I think the time has come for this fight to finally take place,” said Andre Ward, former light heavyweight world champion.
There is no doubt that the fight between Crawford and Spence will be incredible. Two undefeated champions, with vast experience and different styles – the fights are more interesting and unimaginable. It is curious that even 44-year-old Manny Pacquiao, who has already declared that he wants to know the winner, will be closely watching the fight. Of course, it’s hard to believe that the legendary Pacman would be allowed to fight for the overall championship. But the fact that Manny is ready to return to the ring for such a fight is already remarkable. As long as nothing breaks.
