The welterweight leader (up to 66.7 kg) and the WBC / IBF title holder, American Errol Spence Jr. was very categorical in the forecast for the fight of his former rival, Briton Kell Brook (39-2-0, 27 KO), and WBO champion, compatriot Terence Crawford (36-0-0, 27 KO).
“Look, Kell Brook hasn’t performed at 147 lbs since meeting me. And, as for me, he had to try to keep within the weight. It’s not easy for all of us to do this, but especially for him.
I heard that the coach left him or he will not be, and it took only 8 or 9 weeks to train, although usually training takes 12. I do not know what else to say … It will all depend on how he feels. Is he ready? In terms of experience, it’s a good fight, but for me, Crawford will just beat him up, ”Spence said.
