Via Chris Williams: Terence Crawford took to social media Monday while in the ocean calling out Errol Spence Jr. for a unified war. IBF/WBC welterweight champion Spence (27-0.21 KOs) hasn’t fought in a year due to an eye injury and he spent a lot of time negotiating his fight with Manny Pacquiao.
Crawford wants to do the fight with Spence now, because he’s running out of time. The eye injury Spence suffered makes it unlikely that he will agree to face Crawford in his first game back in early 2022.
It is predictable that Spence won’t be fighting Spence next year as he still has other options at PBC in Yordenis Ugas and Keith Thurman.
With Jaron Ennis and Vergil Ortiz Jr both moving up the WBO leaderboard, Crawford is in a situation where he has to fight Spence while he still can before being dethroned by one of the lions. younger death in an almost unsuccessful war. the more money.
Crawford showed in his final game against janitor Shawn Porter that his time as WBO champion was running out.
WBO heavyweight champion Crawford (38-0.29 KOs) is in a predicament as he is about to turn 35, and his contract with the advertising agency Top Rank has expired.
Crawford is looking pretty big right now and it might be a good idea for him to go up to 154 to beat the vulnerable IBF/WBA/WBC champion Jermell Charlo.
“The ocean is as big as a motherfucker. We won’t be able to find your a** punk out here,“Terence Crawford said on social media when calling for Errol Spence. “I don’t know if I can find you in the ocean. You have a lot of places to hide,” says Crawford.

Kenny Porter talks Crawford vs. Spence
“I was an Errol Spence fan except for the nights he fought Shawn Porter,” Kenny Porter told Fighthype. “Terence Crawford, I am in the same situation as Terence. I traveled to Venezuela with Terence in 2007.
“I went to the National tournaments with Terence. When I saw Terence, I was so happy to see Terence,” said Kenny. “I never thought that the times we’ve traveled and the things we’ve done in two completely different weight classes that they would fight each other.
“Both people [Crawford and Spence] proved that they’re at the top of their class, and both of whom I believe should fight each other. Hopefully they’ll work through that and make it a point to have these questions answered in the ring, not on camera.
“At this point, it’s hard for me to decide [who wins between Crawford and Spence]. Hell, if Shawn had fought like the night he fought Errol, we might not have had this conversation.
“On the other hand, Bud is a great fighter and Errol is a great fighter. I hope they put it together and make it happen. If you push me, I’m probably a fan of Spence.
“It was an incredible situation for both of them. I’m talking about their careers now with them matching and undefeated and putting all questions aside.
“If you push me, I must say, me and EJ [Spence] back and the same thing with Bud. These are great guys, and great stories to be told. No one else can tell you they squared off with Terence in an alley.
“And no one else can tell you they’ve been on a plane where the landing gear won’t come with Errol. No one else can say that. I can say that. I can say those things. Considering the fact that we were in a life-or-death situation, Errol was my man.
“The plane is going down, that’s my man. Of course, I want to be offside for that fight [Crawford vs. Spence]. I will be. Make it happen and I’ll be there,” said Kenny Porter.
