Terence Crawford Hints at Closure on Errol Spence Jr. Rematch




Former undisputed welterweight champion Terence Crawford, hailing from Omaha, Nebraska, seemingly put an end to speculation about his rematch with Desoto, Texas’ Errol Spence Jr. on Friday.


In a cryptic social media post on X (formerly Twitter), Crawford expressed a sense of finality, saying,
“I done heard it all now @ErrolSpenceJr it’s ok tho because all in all I’m glad it’s over and done with. I wish you well ma brotha.”

The exact context of Crawford’s message remains unclear, but it might be linked to recent comments by Spence. Earlier in the week, Spence shared a video revealing that he had undergone cataract surgery, his second major eye operation after a detached retina repair in 2021. Spence hinted that his eye condition may have impacted his performance against Crawford, stating,

“Sh!t was covering my eye. Why [do] you think I got hit with so many jabs and hooks? Still a great performance by bro [Crawford].”

Crawford's social media activity has been rife with confrontational posts, targeting critics, Spence, newly crowned IBF welterweight champion Jaron Ennis, and 140-pound titlist Teofimo Lopez.


Last summer, Crawford secured a victory over Spence, defeating him in nine rounds and unifying all four belts in the 147-pound division. Despite this win, Crawford was subsequently stripped of one of his belts by the IBF.


Spence invoked his contractual right to a rematch, but details such as the weight class for the fight remain uncertain. While Spence has shown a preference for fighting at 154 pounds, the final decision on the weight division rests with Crawford.


Anticipation for the rematch had been building, especially after Premier Boxing Champions, the promotional company representing both fighters, inked a new multi-year deal with Amazon Prime Video. The first “PBC on Prime” event is slated for March, raising hopes for a potential showdown between Crawford and Spence.
