Amir Khan has weighed in on a potential fight between Terence Crawford and Errol Spence, and believes Crawford will emerge victorious should the pair finally meet.
Khan experienced Crawford’s capabilities first hand in 2019, suffering a sixth round stoppage defeat at the hands of the American.
Based on that night as well as sharing a training camp with ‘Bud,’ Khan, in an interview with FightHub, described him as one of the very best fighters he has seen.
“I’ve got Terence winning that fight, unanimously. Not by stoppage, because Spence is a very tough, tricky fighter.”
“He just breaks down a fight so easily, does Crawford. He would just make me miss by inches, then catch me every time. He was so precise, and his timing is on point.”
“He’s one of the best fighters I have ever seen – he reminds me a bit of Andre Ward.”
Khan joined Crawford and trainer Brian McIntyre ahead of his long awaited bout with domestic rival Kell Brook in February last year.
However, the Bolton native’s miles on the clock proved too great to overcome that night, and he was defeated via sixth round stoppage.
Fans will be hoping that 2023 is the year the two elite welterweight champions finally get it on after drawn out negotiations broke down last year.
Despite things looking positive at one stage, politics again seemed to get in the way and talks for a mouth watering undisputed fight collapsed.
With Crawford and Spence now in their mid 30s and rumours circulating of a potential move up in weight for the latter, there is a sense that it’s now or never for the historic, all-American fight.
