Errol Spence Jr has established himself as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the boxing realm. Currently, he is holding WBC, IBF, and WBA welterweight titles and has started to work on his next fight which is reportedly going to take place at 154lbs. That means, ‘The Truth’ is moving up in weight class. However, reports claim he would be available for the highly anticipated fight against the arch-rival Terence Crawford, who holds the WBO title at 147 lbs.

This fight has been sought for years but due to negotiation issues, it has fallen apart several times in the past. Despite this, the 33-year-old will give it one more try after moving up in weight. Prior to this, he will most likely go head-to-head against Keith Thurman which is expected to take place in April.

Meanwhile, the 28-0 boxer has diverted his fan’s minds from boxing toward the true meaning of life. He took to Instagram and shared a life-changing lesson.

In the clip, Bishop talked about mindset. He said, “I’m not a billionaire. I might not ever be a billionaire. But I got friends who are billionaires and I found out that the only people who dress rich is poor folks. Billionaire has on tennis shoes and jeans from target while you got a Gucci bag and Louis Vuitton. Do you know why billionaire dresses down because they don’t need a tree? Do you know why poor people will spend their last dollar to get a rich bag? Because they don’t want you to know how short they are.”
