Despite the fact that Showtime Sports boss Steven Espinosa is optimistic about organizing a fight for the title of absolute welterweight division champion (up to 66.7 kg) between Americans Errol Spence (28-0, 22 KOs) and Terence Crawford (38-0, 29 KO), there is information that indicates that the negotiations are far from going well.
In early October, Spence’s representatives reportedly sent Crawford’s side another version of the revised contract, which took into account three changes requested by Terence’s team. At the same time, none of the amendments claimed to play a significant and even less decisive role in the deal. However, two weeks later, there was no response from Crawford’s representatives.
As became known
boxing sceneThe silence that sets in causes a growing uneasiness on Spence’s side. They come to the conclusion that the Crawford team simply does not want to make a deal. While no deadline for the deal is known, Spence’s representatives are at a loss as to why there is no response from Crawford, despite the fact that all the changes that Terence’s side insisted on have been made to the deal.
Meanwhile, Crawford himself has already called his fight with Spence the biggest event in boxing over the past decade.
