Former welterweight world champion, Kell Brook, had made his prediction ahead of the long-awaited and recently announced clash between Errol Spence Jr and Terence Crawford.
The two American’s dealt Brook two of his three career losses, with Spence stopping the ‘The Special One’ in the 11th after a serious eye injury, whilst Crawford finished the Brit in the 4th.
The undisputed fight is certainly one for the purists and has the boxing world split on who will come out on top.
“I think that Spence has probably got the stronger dig, stronger puncher in there. But Crawford is very surprising, he catches you by surprise and they’re the shots that can knock you out. He’s got some pop as well.
It’s a fight where I’ve been in with both of them and it’s a funny one because I could get this wrong, the reason being that styles make fights. A positive for Spence is that he is a natural southpaw, and I think that may cause Crawford some problems, but I’m going for Crawford to win that fight. He’s a switch-hitter, he’s like a surgeon in there, very precise, great finisher and he is a great fighter.
They’re both great fighters, but I’d have to lean towards Crawford, he’s been more active than Spence, who has been in a big car crash, he’s not really been active like Crawford. There is only small percentages in it, but I do lean towards Crawford in that fight.
It’s hard to split them, yeah he is stronger is Spence, but Crawford is more of a surgeon. He’s more precise, he’s more cute, accurate, switch-hitting, but don’t get me wrong they’re both unbelievable, pound-for-pound greats.”
