Abel Sanchez: Spence will beat Crawford
Negotiations are underway for a fight between the WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford (38-0, 29 KOs) and IBF, WBC and WBA champion Errol Spence Jr. (28-0, 22 KOs), which is tentatively scheduled for November 19. Well-known coach Abel Sanchez shared his opinion about this fight.
Spence Jr will beat Crawford. Already in Olympic boxing, it was clear that he had a championship potential, and now Errol is realizing this. He also has a great coach, Derrick James. Although Crawford fights too rarely and has more experience, he is not the freshest physically. Spence has the right talent scale and physical advantage,” Sanchez said.
“Errol won’t beat Bud early, but he will control the fight. She will keep Crawford at bay, Spence's right-handed straight will play a big role. He can handle the stance change that Crawford loves so much. I bet on a less passive, younger and bigger boxer, ”added the American, known primarily for his collaboration with boxers such as Gennady Golovkin and Terry Norris.
