Even the most well-known boxers in the world have had to put a stop to their practise sessions. This Saturday night in Las Vegas, Nevada, they'll just sit back, unwind, and take in the show.
Errol Spence Jr. and Terence Crawford will finally face fight that evening. The fabled title of "best pound-for-pound fighter in the world," as well as all of the welterweight marbles, will allegedly be awarded to the victor.
Even though Dmitry Bivol doesn't have a bout scheduled, he would cancel his plans on July 29th to observe the situation. Bivol thinks it is reasonable that Crawford will enter their matchup as the small favourite according to the oddsmakers.
“I would say Crawford is the favorite,” explained Bivol on his social media account. “Because of his speed, movement, and reflexes.”
As of right now, Crawford hasn't faced anyone whose skill level was even remotely comparable to his on fight night. Crawford (39-0, 30 KOs), who has held title reigns in three different weight divisions, virtually punched his Hall of Fame ticket a while ago. Nevertheless, despite his credentials, Spence (28-0, 22 KOs) seems to be the only opponent who can match him in high-speed chess.
For the 33-year-old Dallas native, he savagely seized the WBA championship from Yordenis Ugas, stole Shawn Porter's WBC title, and tore the IBF crown from Kell Brook's dead body.
“Spence is the bigger guy in the ring and also has great ring IQ but in my opinion, Crawford is the most complete fighter of all right now.”
