Terence Crawford his fired back at Errol Spence’s stablemate, Jermell Charlo, and revealed he plans to see him in the ring in the not too distant future.
Undisputed light middleweight champion Charlo has never been shy of criticising ‘Bud,’ with some of the back and forth between the pair surpassing even exchanges by Crawford and Spence.
On a recent podcast appearance, Crawford described Jermell Charlo as a “ho” and insisted he will get his comeuppance one day.
“Charlo, man that dude a ho. For some odd reason, once I started calling out Spence, he jumped in it. Like dude, mind your business and stay on the sideline.”
“When I beat Spence, I’m coming to see you.”
Charlo holds all four belts at super welterweight, and the prospect of Crawford moving up and locking horns with him after Spence would surely have boxing fans across the globe buzzing.
He has matters in his current division to attend to first, though.
After years of failed negotiations, playing the blame game and causing the pugilistic public to pull their hair out, Spence and Crawford finally agreed terms to settle their difference in the ring and, more importantly, establish who the best 147lber in the world is.
With both men now in their mid thirties, boxing fans were starting to lose hope that the historic undisputed fight would ever take place, especially given the promotional and broadcaster obstacles that have always seemed stand between the two.
However, social media went into overdrive last month when the legacy defining clash was officially announced for the T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas on July 29.
