The welterweight division is on the verge of witnessing a historic clash between two of its undisputed champions, Errol Spence Jr. and Terence Crawford. The fight, which has been in the works for years, is reportedly finally set to happen on June 17 in Las Vegas, according to Ring Magazine.
Spence, who holds the WBA, WBC and IBF titles, is widely regarded as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world. The southpaw from Texas has a perfect record of 28-0 with 22 knockouts and has defeated notable opponents such as Shawn Porter, Danny Garcia and Mikey Garcia.
Crawford, who holds the WBO title, is also considered one of the elite fighters in the sport. The switch-hitter from Nebraska has a flawless record of 39-0 with 30 knockouts and has unified titles in three weight classes. He has beaten top names such as Amir Khan, Kell Brook and Jeff Horn.
A source told Anson Wainwright of RingTV.com that the fight is now close to being finalized after months of negotiations between both camps. The source also said that an official announcement is expected to come during the Gervonta Davis vs Ryan Garcia fight on April 22.
If the fight does happen, it will be a rare occasion where all four major belts in a weight class are on the line. It will also be a chance for both fighters to cement their legacy as one of the greatest of their generation and perhaps of all time.
