Crawford Aims to Maintain Undefeated Streak by Defeating Spence This Weekend

During a recent media training session, renowned boxer Terence Crawford voiced his intent to preserve his flawless record in Las Vegas by triumphing over Errol Spence Jr with a knockout during their Saturday night clash at the T-Mobile Arena.

Crawford's demeanor and overall energy suggest he is acutely aware of the looming threat to his perfect record, which might be equated to taking a dive into the deepest ocean trenches to confront the formidable Spence, referred to here as the "big fish". Crawford, who boasts an impressive 39-0 record, including 30 KOs, seemed a bit depleted during the day, potentially a consequence of shedding weight to meet the 147-lb limit for Friday’s official weigh-in.

For this bout, Crawford seems to have adopted a bulking strategy, adding extra pounds in an attempt to leverage his weight against the naturally larger and more robust Spence. Unfortunately, the side effect of this strategy is the necessity to lose significant water weight for Friday’s weigh-in, which appears to be taking a toll on Crawford's morale.

Holders of the IBF, WBA, and WBC welterweight titles, Spence (28-0, 22 KOs) and Crawford, the WBO champ, will square off on Saturday, July 29th, on Showtime PPV at Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena. The live boxing extravaganza is set to commence at 8:00 p.m. ET/5:00 p.m. PT.

Ray Flores, speaking to Premier Boxing Champions during media workout sessions, noted the palpable excitement in Las Vegas, remarking on the increase in fan presence.

Terence Crawford, appreciative of the support, expressed his gratitude to all those who had turned up for the event, stating, "I feel great. I want to thank each & every one of you for taking the time to come out to the event."

The conversations drifted towards the personal lives of the fighters, emphasizing their roles as family men. Crawford shared his anticipation about his family joining him, expressing how their presence would make the occasion more special.

Crawford’s response to the question about sleep and rest revealed his professional discipline, saying, “I just isolate myself in the room and don’t leave unless I have to.” On being asked about his favorite part of fight week, Crawford made it clear that his eyes are set on one thing: the fight.

Predicting an "exciting fight," Crawford assured fans that they could anticipate "fireworks" in his upcoming face-off against Spence. In a nod to his home support, Crawford didn't forget to mention his unbroken winning streak in Las Vegas, vowing to uphold that record.
