Terence Crawford and Errol Spence Jr., two of the best welterweight boxers in the world, will finally face off in the ring. According to ESPN’s Mike Coppinger, Crawford and Spence Jr. agreed to a fight on July 29 at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena.

The winner of the fight will become the undisputed welterweight champion of the world. Crawford currently holds WBO welterweight title, while Spence has WBA, WBC, and IBF welterweight titles in his possession. 

Coppinger reports that the fight agreement between Crawford and Spence will have a “rematch” clause, allowing the loser to ask for a second fight 30 days after the original bout. The rematch would need to take place by the end of 2023. In case the two fights are split, a trilogy would be in the cards.

Terence Crawford has a 39-0 boxing record, with 30 of his wins coming as a result of a knockout. He won the WBO title in a match against Jeff Horn in 2018 and has since defended it six times. His last fight came in late 2022 when he knocked out David Avanesyan in the sixth round.

Errol Spence Jr. is also undefeated in his professional career, holding a 28-0 record and winning 22 bouts with a knockout. His last fight came in April 2022 against Yordenis Ugás, when he won the WBA (Super) welterweight title.
