As became known
ESPNthe parties are currently actively working on a deal, and an unnamed source from the boxers’ inner circle reports that “there are no real obstacles to signing contracts.”

If the parties shake hands, the megafight is planned to be held in Las Vegas (USA). The meeting will take place as part of Al Haymon’s PBC show and, of course, will be broadcast on the PPV pay-per-view system on either Showtime or FOX.

In April this year, Spence won a unification bout against WBA champion Yordenis Ugas, stopping the Cuban in the 10th round.

Crawford had his last fight in November last year, in the same 10th round, knocking out compatriot Sean Porter.
