Terence Crawford has shot down Shane Mosley’s claims about what happened when he and Errol Spence Jr supposedly locked horns in the gym, stating that the sparring session in question never even happened.
Mosley claimed in a recent interview that he had witnessed Spence “damage” Crawford in a spar, and thus was backing him in their undisputed welterweight showdown on July 29.
However, Crawford strongly refuted the former world champions account when appearing on ThePorterWay podcast.
“He said he was there? I love Shane, but everybody who knows me and Errol knows that we have never sparred.”
In Crawford’s defence, one would imagine that the boxing world would have heard about it by now if Spence and Crawford ever did cross paths behind closed doors.
The T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas will play host to the four belt undisputed bout between the pair, and is guaranteed to be packed out on the night.
A two way rematch clause is included in the fight contract, meaning there is every chance fans will see Spence and Crawford run it back a second time.
Both are viewed as amongst the best pound for pound fighters in boxing, and the victor in the Mojave desert will have laid a huge claim to being the best fighter on the planet, with some even already giving that accolade to Crawford.
The mouthwatering event will be available for fans on Showtime Pay Per View in America and on the recently launched TNT Sports in the UK, also via Pay Per View.
