Errol Spence fires back at Terence Crawford after his bitter rival claimed he was ‘getting f*****’ in negotiations for their collapsed mega-fight – as the unified welterweight champion insists HE was doing ‘all the heavy lifting’ in fiery online spat

  • Errol Spence and Terence Crawford held talks for a undisputed clash
  • However, negotiations broke down and they have gone their separate ways
  • Crawford claimed he was ‘getting fucked’ in negotiations for the proposed fight
  • Spence has hit back, saying he was the one doing ‘all the heavy lifting’ 

Errol Spence has hit back at Terence Crawford by claiming he was the one pushing for their undisputed welterweight clash to take place before talks broke down.

Both men had been in negotiations for a mega-fight in recent weeks, but could not come to an agreement.

Crawford posted a video on Instagram on Tuesday, insisting he’d done all he could do make the fight with Spence.

‘I was the only one taking all the risks. I told him I’d take no guarantees, the lesser end of the money, whatever you want, I’ll take it,’ Crawford said.

‘That’s the confidence that I had that I would beat that man, even though I knew I was getting f******* in the long run.’

Spence clearly sees things very differently, though, and gave his own perspective on Wednesday night as he claimed he was the one doing ‘all the heavy lifting’ in negotiations for the Crawford fight.

The unified champion also stood up for his team, stating they had acted in his best interests in talks with Crawford.

‘A smart boss surrounds himself with the people who are the best at what they do and can help in my decisions,’ he wrote.

Crawford and Spence have gone their separate ways for now, with the former scheduled to fight David Avanesyan on December 10. Crawford has also said he expects Spence to face Keith Thurman next.

Crawford still wants to fight Spence, and has called for future talks to be done in public

Speaking in his online video, Crawford made it clear that he still wants to fight Spence in the future.

‘My intentions are still the same. After this fight, Spence is successful, I’m successful, he said he’s going to spin the block. Let him spin the block so I can drop him off,’ he said.

He reiterated this message on Twitter on Wednesday, but called for talks to be made ‘public’ so that everyone can see who really wants the fight to take place.

‘@ErrolSpence when you spin the block let’s do something that’s never been done before and make the negotiations public since you yo own boss f*** it,’ Crawford wrote as he laid down the gauntlet to his rival.
