Is there any intrigue in the Crawford-Spence fight? Hearn picks favorite


Promoter Eddie HearnMatchroom Boxing) responded to rumors that on November 19 in Las Vegas (USA), American welterweight champions Errol Spence (28-0, 22 KOs) and Terence Crawford (38-0, 29 KOs) will determine the absolute.

“Great fight! Surprised only by the fact that the negotiations dragged on, –
reasoning Hearn. But all’s well that ends well. I think these are two great welterweights. I think that such fights are what boxing needs. I’m looking forward to seeing who wins. My forecast? I think it will be Crawford.”

Hearn argued his choice: “I’m just sure that sooner or later all the injuries that he received during his career will affect the actions of Spence: a car accident, an eye injury and all that. And I also think that it is very difficult for him to cut to the limit of 66.7 kg. Well, the last argument is that I also appreciate Terence very highly.”

Boss Matchroom Boxing preferred to play it safe with the final forecast: “This is, perhaps, a fight from the 50/50 category. But if you are interested in my choice, then I bet on Crawford.

The undisputed champion Haney got his hands full with the forecast for this fight. And when ex-champion Regis Prograis was asked about him, he did not forget to insert about himself: “Spence – Crawford? Are you aware that I fought one of them?”
