Spence holds the IBF, WBC and WBA championships, while “Bud” Crawford is the WBO title holder and is the lineal champion as well. Both combatants are undefeated as professionals, as Spence (28-0, 22 KO’s) and Crawford (38-0, 29 KO’s) are both the pinnacle of their division.
It’s rare in boxing to get everyone on the same page for what is undoubtedly a must-make fight between two undefeated champions, but that’s what’s happened after plenty of wrangling from both sides. Assuming there are no injuries or issues, this should be one of the fights of the year.
We’ll have odds posted from DraftKings Sportsbook once their available as well.
