Watch when Errol Spence and Terence Crawford came face-to-face and shared brilliant ten-minute war of words over future fight
Errol Spence vs Terence Crawford is one of the best possible fights that can be made in boxing today.
Crawford is set to defend his WBO welterweight title against Kell Brook on Saturday night, while Spence will stake his WBC and IBF belts against Danny Garcia on December 5.
Assuming both men come through as expected, their three-belt unification would be gigantic in 2021.
Spence and Crawford previously came face-to-face at a Maurice Hooker fight in late 2018.
The rivals went back and forth for a thoroughly entertaining ten minutes which was caught on camera.
Respect shared between them was evident, as was the competitive nature of their conversation.
The pair started off by exchanging words over their respective weights.
Crawford called Spence ‘fat’, an insult the unified champion laughed off.
A friend of Crawford’s then made a comment which irked Spence, causing him to switch his attention.
Crawford soon refocused Spence and they went back and forth about the times they have been hurt earlier in their career.
Both men promised to knock each other out and Spence proposed a $100,000 bet.
Crawford retorted by offering a $1,000,000 bet and they shook hands on this wager.
Promoter Bob Arum, who represents Crawford, then became involved and told Spence: “The smartest thing you can do is stay away from Terence.”
Spence replied: “You’re a legendary promoter, I like that.”
The welterweight champions then continued to exchange words for a further five minutes and you can view the full video above.
