“Why would you go up the face, go up to face Canelo (Alvarez) but you won’t face Terence Crawford in the same weight class as you?”

Bradley mocked Spence for taking up a fight that will get him a huge paycheck instead of fighting the resilient combatant Terence Crawford.

For a long time now, Spence has shown little interest in touching gloves with Crawford. He, instead, is keen to move a couple of notches up to take on the Mexican boxer and the pound for pound king, Saul Alvarez.

I think he is, just wants to get the money, and then he wants to leave the game. That’s it. He has no intentions on fighting Terence Crawford. I was (am) gonna stand by that until they actually sign a fight,” Bradley concluded.

Is Errol Spence Jr. dodging Terence Crawford?

‘The Truth’ fought Danny Garcia recently. This was a hugely anticipated fight after Spence met with a car crash last year. Spence signified himself in this fight and was all over Garcia to win it.

Since this fight, he’s currently unaligned with any opponent, but his fans are extremely excited to see him fight Terence Crawford. Crawford is a big-wig of the welterweights. He slides over Spence in terms of experience. Over the years, he has spent a lot of time building himself and reach the top of the 147-pound division.

‘The Truth’ might have put the Canelo Alvarez fight on top of his checklist. A fight with Saul is highly rewarding in terms of money, experience, and exposure.

Maybe after facing Canelo, Spence might level down to welterweight once again to compete against his nemesis, Terence Crawford.

Should Spence fight Crawford first and then touch gloves with Canelo?
