Trainer Joel Diaz takes some time to talk to Fight Hub TV about the impending rematch between Terence Crawford and Errol Spence, saying while it might be a move for Spence make a lot more money, it’s not a fight that he’s going to fare any better in.
“No. Spence will not do any better,” Diaz said of a rematch at 154. “I think it will be worse for Errol Spence because now that Terence Crawford already got his number — and then his mentality after this beating is different. I mean, he’s a warrior, Errol Spence is a warrior, says ‘okay I’ll fight him again’ but honestly, realistically, it will be no difference. It will be the same outcome and I think on the next one it’ll be more benefitable for Crawford in a better fashion.”
“I mean, the fact that Errol Spence is moving to ‘54 is like — Crawford is moving to ‘54 too. He’s a big boy as well. And that night I saw a Crawford bigger than Errol Spence. He looked bigger that night. So there is no difference.
“I can tell you this, if this is a business fight it’s good for Errol Spence. But other than that it doesn’t benefit him right now, especially right after this last one. I mean he should take another one, build his confidence a little bit, take an easier fight, get his confidence back, and then go after Crawford. But not right away.”
