Terrence Crawford aims to fry Eroll Spence Jr like a fish in their upcoming super fight

Both Errol Spence Jr. and Terence Crawford have blatantly said that they are the best fighters in the welterweight class for the better part of the last five years. Of course, there was only one brutal method to settle those ideas and opinions—fighting it out in the ring.

Fans have raged and salivated over the prospect of the two trading blows, but they were never able to reach a fight agreement—until now.

“The wait is over,” said Crawford on a self-recorded video. “It’s game time. Errol Spence, Terence Crawford, July 29th, Las Vegas, Nevada.”

Despite having staked his claim in three different weight classes, 35-year-old Crawford has spent his whole career as the man to defeat. The native of Omaha, Nebraska, is regarded by many as the best boxer in the world pound-for-pound in addition to his stellar record.

Spence, though, doesn't agree with that assertion. The strong Southpaw has made it his mission throughout the years to dethrone each and every welterweight title. The Texas resident gained notoriety by doing so and went by the name "The Big Fish."

Spence (28-0, 22 KOs) has largely lived true to his self-given moniker. When last seen, Yordenis Ugas had lost his WBA title after being pummelling by the current unified champion, who stopped the fight in 10 rounds.

Spence has his sights set squarely on Crawford's WBO trophy now that he holds three of the four remaining belts. Crawford (39-0, 30 KOs) hasn't been phased by his destructive work.

Spence appears to have earned his new alias, and Crawford has grinned menacingly the entire time. The slick-hitting celebrity has decided that on July 29th, he will take out his fishing rod, light a fire, and burn Spence alive.

“Everybody come out, show support and watch me fry this fish.”
