The highly anticipated fight between Terence Crawford and Errol Spence Jr. has been confirmed for July 29

The highly anticipated fight between welterweight champions Terence Crawford and Errol Spence Jr. has finally been confirmed to take place on July 29 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Crawford and Spence, both ranked as top pound-for-pound fighters, will receive “eight figures guaranteed” for their participation in the event. Meanwhile, Spence acknowledged the impending challenge, describing it as a “throwback fight on paper” with the potential for a “one-sided ass whooping.” The two fighters are expected to move up to 154 pounds after the fight.

This much-awaited fight has been a long time coming, with multiple failed attempts at negotiations between the two welterweights who are both highly regarded in the boxing world. Crawford has held the WBO welterweight title since 2018 and is a former three-division champion with a record of 39-0, including 30 KOs. Meanwhile, Spence, an Olympian from the 2012 Games, is the current WBA, WBC, and IBF champion with an unblemished record of 28-0 and 22 KOs.

The Crawford vs. Spence fight will take place on the same night as UFC 292, which will also feature Dustin Poirier vs. Justin Gaethje 2 and Jan Blachowicz vs. Alex Pereira, among other bouts. Boxing fans have been eagerly anticipating this match-up, and with the official confirmation of the fight, they are sure to be excited as the two welterweights prepare to face off in the ring.
