Terence Crawford says Errol Spence Jr. needs a fight against him. WBO welterweight champion chases the top guy from PBC.
Crawford states that he’s heading for the boxing Hall of Fame whether he fights IBF champion Spence (25-0, 21 KOs) or not. So the choice is in Spence’s hands.
“What I always tell people when they mention me and Errol Spence, of course, I want the fight. I tell everybody,” stated Terence Crawford to Joe Rogan. “I always say with or without him, I’m going to the Hall of Fame. If you look at all the things I’ve accomplished in the sport of boxing, people that are in the Hall of Fame didn’t even accomplish that. I just think that I don’t need him [Spence]. He really needs me. You’ve got ask him,” said the champion.

“It’s all about business. But on my side, I’m ready. I think it has something to do with Top Rank-PBC,” said Crawford. “And, I wouldn’t say financial, because the money would be there, if the fight were ever to be made. I just think it’ll eventually happen, but me being with Top Rank is standing in the way of a lot of things happening,” said Crawford about a unification fight with Spence.
