Spence Jr said, “I’m not thinking about that. I’m thinking about you know seeing my kids tomorrow and sitting on my ranch and finally ride my horses at the 10 tool weeks and, you know, just chilling out eating some good food. So we’ll see what… What holds in the future.”

‘The Truth’ added, “Right now you know just enjoy myself and a long year and a half, you know, to come back and, you know, work hard train hard and just was on a 120% focus, and I’m gonna wind down for like a week or two.”

Despite not wanting to answer any of the questions on a potential fight, Spence Jr had time to take a swipe at ‘Bud’. To the question of Crawford being in attendance, he said, “He got to live up to his words. If he says he’s not worried about me, then I don’t know why he was doing it. What he was doing? I probably wouldn’t go to none of his fight, so I’m not sure about Terence Crawford”.
