By Chris Williams: Errol Spence Jr is confirming that the mega-fight with Terence Crawford is “happening next” and that he’s going to put him “in the dirt.”

IBF, WBA & WBC welterweight champion Spence (28-0, 22 KOs) can’t wait to get at WBO belt holder Crawford (38-0, 29 KOs) so that he can scuttle his ship and send him to the bottom with the fishes.

Crawford, 35, has been dreaming about this fight for years, but he could retreat wanting to mix it with Spence because this is a much different kettle of fish than the weak opposition that he’s been feasting on during his entire career.

The Spence vs. Crawford fight was tentatively talked about taking place on November 19th, but with Terence reportedly wanting visibility, don’t the expenses for the bout; it could delay the match from happening?

The good news is Spence is confirming the fight with Crawford is happening, so that’s one positive thing. With Crawford getting older, fans can’t afford to wait too much longer for the fight to happen.

“They’re saying the same things that we’re saying in terms of wanting this fight to happen now,” said Shawn Porter on the Porter Way Podcast. “In terms of the boxing world, this is the biggest fight that can be made in professional boxing right now.

“At some point, you’ve got to be mean. At some point, you’re going to have to get down and dirty, and the best part about that is Errol Spence has no problems doing all of that and more. So, it’s going to be a great fight.

“We’re talking about it through the lens of disappointment at seeing that it’s not going to happen when we were told that it was going to happen, but we got people talking about it,” Porter continued about the Spence vs. Crawford fight.

“This is going to be a Hearns-Hagler fight. It’s going to have the intensity of Hagler vs. Hearns, and it’s definitely going to have the build-up. It’s going to have the hype and the dance partners. It’s 50-50.

“I think the first three rounds are going to be very tactical, back and forth. I think Terence is going to come to the ring mad. I knew he was a mean guy, and I knew he had to get to a certain place to get himself to fight,” said Porter about his fight last October against Crawford.
