“I don’t see the need for a second fight when there was so much superiority,” were the words of Errol Spence Jr. on July 29 when he lost to Terence Crawford by knockout in the ninth round. However, the one who until that moment was triple world champion, decided to give a second part to this confrontation.
At the time of agreeing to the fight between Spence Jr. and Crawford, the contract had a clause which the loser could activate in a period of 30 days to request a rematch. Well, this Friday it was announced that Errol activated this clause, so the rematch between the two will be a fact.
The information was released by Derrick James, Spence Jr.’s own trainer, in an interview with ESPN last Thursday.
Normally this type of rematch originates when there was a very close fight with a controversial decision winner. However, Crawford defeated Spence Jr. comfortably in the ninth round, after knocking him to the canvas twice.
this rematch will likely take place at super welterweight, Well, one of the arguments of Spence’s team was precisely what it cost the boxer to make weight. So it is possible that the rematch will take place at a more comfortable weight for the challenger, although for Crawford it would also be a great advantage to fight at 154 pounds.
For now, no details have been given as to where or when the rematch between two of the best boxers of today will take place. Although if it ends up being a fact, it is possible that it will materialize by the end of 2023 or the beginning of 2024.
