Errol Spence Jr. and Terence Crawford face off for the undisputed welterweight world championship

Errol Spence Jr. and Terence Crawford will square off for the undisputed welterweight world championship in one of the biggest fights in boxing history.

A rare fight in the boxing world will take place between Errol Spence Jr. and Terence Crawford, two of the top 10 fighters in the world based on strength-to-weakness ratio. 

The contest has been building for a while. In Oklahoma City in 2018, the two got into an argument backstage, making a fight inevitable. But after five years and numerous exchanges of trash talk, the two fighters will face off in the ring. Nearly five years ago, a fight between two of boxing’s top fighters was ready to happen, but for a variety of reasons since then, the fight has not taken place. Instead, as numerous obstacles prevented a fight from happening, fans had to settle for years of watching Spence and Crawford sparring incendiary words outside the ring.

On Saturday in Las Vegas, Both will face off in the ring with their perfect records intact and all four major welterweight titles on the line. Spence, who currently holds the WBC, WBA, and IBF titles, will square off against Crawford, the WBO champion.

True 50/50 fights are now so rare in boxing’s main events today. A fight with odds as close as Saturday’s fight between Errol Spence Jr. and Terence Crawford doesn’t happen very often, but there are times when fans may believe the underdog has a better chance than he is given credit for. On Saturday night inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, the two welterweight champions will face off to determine who will become the first undisputed, four-belt titleholder of the modern era.

Crawford stated last week in Las Vegas at his own media workout that “this fight is happening at the right time.” There is more to contend with now that all the belts are up for grabs. The winner of the fight becomes the undisputed welterweight king.
