Errol Spence Jr vs Terrence Crawford finally set for July 29th in Las Vegas


According to reliable sources, Terence Crawford and Errol Spence Jr. have reached an agreement to square off on July 29 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas for the undisputed welterweight championship.


The most anticipated boxing bout since the megafight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao in 2015 will take place thanks to negotiations between PBC's Al Haymon, who represents Spence, and CAA's Ish Hinson, who represents Crawford.


According to insiders, Crawford and Spence will both receive a guaranteed eight-figure payday for their Showtime PPV bout, and the loser has a 30-day window in which to request a bidirectional rematch. According to insiders, Crawford's contract with PBC calls for two fights. Both boxers are anticipated to go up to 154 pounds following the likely rematch between Crawford and Spence, which must occur before the end of 2023.


The likelihood of a trilogy fight increases significantly if they split the two contests. And whoever prevails is anticipated to strive for a shot at Jermell Charlo's undisputed junior middleweight title, which is presently held by Charlo. Derrick James trains Spence and Charlo in Dallas.


The agreement puts an end to years of Crawford and Spence circling one another as the two best welterweights in the world without ever engaging in combat.


But now, they're about to face off in one of the biggest fights the sport has to offer. This fight will determine who is the best at 147 pounds and will give the victor the right to call themselves the best boxer in the world at any weight. Spence is now ranked No. 4 on ESPN's list of the top boxers pound-for-pound, three positions behind Crawford.


In order to fight Keith Thurman in the summer, Spence (28-0, 22 KOs) was supposed to step up to 154 pounds, but Spence and Crawford both wanted to fight each other first. According to insiders, the combatants met in March and reached an agreement on broad principles.


The advisers for each of the fighters were essential to the agreement. Longtime friends Haymon and Hinson collaborated in Tyson Fury's and Deontay Wilder's second and third heavyweight championship bouts.


Finally, now the fight between Crawford and Spence, which fans have been waiting years for, is now scheduled to take place.
