Spence vs Crawford Fightweek Fan Guide



Spence vs Crawford Fightweek Fan Guide

Spence vs Crawford…we are one week away from the anticipated welterweight showdown between aces Errol Spence and Terence Crawford.

Eyes will be on the Texas hitter with the soft drawl and hard hands, and the Nebraska standout with a pitbull's finishing instinct before they settle things in the ring in Las Vegas.

Your friends at NYFIGHTS have been on it, for years, actually. Check out some of the coverage we've offered:

Hector Franco did this solid compare and contrast, it gives you a good idea of how things have changed in 20 years. Michael Woods compiled the very best Terence Crawford KOs for youse. Matthew Aguilar helped newer fans understand the immensity of this matchup. Ryan O'Hara put into words the frustration many felt as this no brainer matchup didn't get made, year after year. He also pointed out the sweepstakes of silliness which saw media trip over themselves seeking to be the first to drop the news, that the fight was ON.

Leading up to Spence vs Crawford Saturday evening, fans will be able to follow the fight week goings on, with copious opportunities to check in on the principals and supporting cast.
