Boxing: Mike Tyson confidently calls Spence Jr vs Crawford fight

Boxing legend Mike Tyson has no doubts when it comes to calling the upcoming welterweight battle between Errol Spence Jr and Terrence Crawford.

A deal has yet to be officially announced but the boxing world expects Spence and Crawford to go at it, probably in Las Vegas, this fall.

What makes this fight so tantalising for fans is that both boxers are in their prime and all four welterweight belts will be on the line. Winner takes all, everything on the line.

Many have been calling for this fight for a while now and it has certainly been on the cards for a few years but it seems the stars have finally aligned for this matchup. Both fighters are considered amongst the top pound-for-pound boxers in the world.

It’s a tough-to-call battle between two elite fighters, but Mike Tyson has a clear feeling. Asked by ESNEWS to pick a winner he had no doubt and replied with just one word: “Crawford.”

Many other fans and pundits have Spence, however, while some don’t dare to call this even matchup. One thing’s certain and that is that fans won’t want to miss this fight if and when it finally gets the go ahead.

The winner between Crawford and Spence will most likely be considered the greatest pound-for-pound fighter in the game.
