Terence Crawford: Errol Spence fight will never happen, doesn’t think Vergil Ortiz really wants to fight

New, 143 comments

Crawford maintains that he’s completely over the idea of ever facing Spence.

In the immediate aftermath of Vergil Ortiz Jr’s stoppage win over Maurice Hooker, our friends at Fight Hub TV caught up with Terence Crawford to get his impressions of the fight, Ortiz saying he wants to fight him next, and when we might ever see him in the ring against Errol Spence.

Crawford on his thoughts on Ortiz-Hooker

“It was a good fight, Mo broke his hand. It was a good fight. Both of ‘em did good.”

On if he believes Hooker was competitive in the fight

“Yeah, of course! Vergil was slowing down as you can see, but Mo got caught with a couple of good clean body shots that slowed him down.”

On how he thinks he would fare against Ortiz

“Ya’ll all know that answer.”

On Ortiz calling him out

“He really don’t want me. That’s just the thing to do — call for the fighters that’s at the top. But he’s doing his thing, doing what he’s supposed to do and I wish him nothing but the best.”

On when a highly anticipated bout against Errol Spence could happen

“Nah, never. That fight never gonna happen. It’s over with.”
