Errol Spence talks potential fights against Crawford, Brook, and Thurman

Errol Spence answers questions about potential future fights.

Errol Spence sits down with the media and takes questions about possible fights with Terence Crawford, Kell Brook, and Keith Thurman. Check out what he had to say.

Spence on if he expects Kell Brook to come back to welterweight if he loses to Gennady Golovkin:

"I don't know...He can go to 154 if it's the right fights. But who knows. I really don't care."

On if he would meet Brook at a catchweight if Brook beats Golovkin:

"Nah, the weight is at 147. That's where the title is at so there is no reason to make your own weight, 147's the weight."

On his thoughts about a potential future fight with Terence Crawford:

"I haven't imagined it but it could be something in the future. We're both young guys. He's at 140, I'm at 147. Terence Crawford is a great fighter, it could be something that could happen in the future but right now I'm worried about everyone that's at 147."

On his thoughts about the Keith Thurman-Shawn Porter fight and if it made a statement about their relevancy in the division:

"Definitely. Keith Thurman and Shawn Porter, they been here. They was here before me. So they showed that they're great fighters and their at the top of the division. They put on a great performance and a great show."

On if he thinks Keith Thurman took away credit from his win over Chris Algieri by calling Algieri a chump:

"I don't think so. I mean everybody says it was a great performance, not only the win, just the stoppage alone...[Thurman] might say that but Keith Thurman would probably would've took that fight right now if it was given to him so it is what it is..."

On when we might see him against a name like Keith Thurman, Shawn Porter, or Danny Garcia:

"Right now I'm not worried about those guys. If the IBF ordered me to fight them then I'd fight them. Right now I'm on the IBF route...once I get the IBF title I'll worry about the other titles like Keith Thurman and Danny Garcia. But right now they're not even on my mind, I'm going the IBF route."

On which Game of Thrones character he would be:

"I would be Jon Snow, man. Jon Snow should be everybody's favorite character if you're on Game of Thrones. If it's not Jon Snow it's his little sister [Arya]. But I would be Jon Snow though, man. Jon Snow, he's a bad dude."
