Arum also touched on the other very promising and dangerous asset to the welterweight division in the form of the IBF world title holder, Errol ‘The Truth’ Spence (22-0). Arum shared his view that he believes Spence poses the biggest threat to his Omaha native charge’s quest for supremacy at 147 lbs arguing there will be huge ramifications on the line when Spence and Crawford engage into battle “Spence is a terrific, terrific fighter, and he and Terence, I think, will be a major, major fight down the road.”
Arum, however, made his intention to chase the best in the division regardless of who it is and Crawford is prepared for either Spence or Thurman. “If Thurman fights Spence and Thurman happens to beat Spence, which I don’t think he will, then, you know, we’d approach Thurman as far as doing a fight with Terence. But the way I really look at it, without knowing for sure, is that Spence beats those guys on that side of the table and Spence and Terence then fight for supremacy. And that, I think, is a big fight. But I could be wrong.” Arum said when analysing the potential clash which will leave fight fans salivating in 2018.
