Errol Spence: This fight does a lot for the sport of boxing

Errol Spence Jr. and Terence Crawford, are two undefeated boxing superstars and pound-for-pound greats, who when they clash will decide the best modern welterweight since Floyd Mayweather.  Last week via a virtual press conference the two discussed their highly anticipated showdown which takes place Saturday, July 29 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, which is the bout of a Showtime pay-per-view.

Spence, who now holds the WBC, WBA, and IBF welterweight titles, will face the lone champion left in Terence Crawford, the WBO champion. This would make the winner the first undisputed welterweight world champion in the four-belt era. The fight has generated excitement as it has the potential to determine the sport's number one pound-for-pound fighter.

“There’s no backing down for either one of us," said Spence Jr. during the press conference. "Me and Terence put together is just a recipe for a great fight. We both come to win and now we have everything on the line. I know we’re gonna put on a great performance."

During the press conference, Spence went into great detail outlining his determination to win this fight. Spence lamented the legacy component of this bout which seems to drive him. 

Spence also explained that he arrived in Las Vegas three weeks early to not just support his teammate and a fighter he promotes in Frank Martin, but also to train and acclimate for the biggest fight of his career. Spence believes that his preparation and mentality leading into this fight is the difference. 

“This fight boils down to grit, determination, and focus,". It’s about [whose] body and mind can withstand the most punishment, but also make it through different highs and lows of the fight. Whoever can impose their style on their opponent will win the fight."
