Per Michael Benson, Crawford said, “I don’t feel like our fight should’ve took that long. He’s gotten two injuries since. Who knows if Errol Spence will ever be the same fighter that he once was when he was considered the boogeyman of the division?” He also spoke about how he pursued the contest, however, it was Errol Spence Jr. that really did not want the fight.

Per BoxingScene, he said, “You know, I felt like I did everything that I possibly can do, you know, to try to make that fight happen. You know, and for some odd reason, you know, everybody kept saying, ‘Oh, I’m chasing him. I’m this and I’m that.’ Yeah, I was chasing him. You know? And he don’t want the fight. He was saying he wanted the fight, but he really didn’t want the fight. You know? And my thing was just if you wanted the fight, you could’ve made the fight happen.”
