Spence Jr said, “I mean really nothing to say about it, nobody runs from Terence Crawford. Like I said I am coming off a car accident and I have to fight Danny Garcia so I am able to pick the tune-up, but I am fighting Danny Garcia so I mean I gotta get past him to even think about somebody else so once I get past Danny Garcia, I can ask questions about hence Crawford.”
