by Sean Jones: Trainer Barry Hunter has said he wants Errol Spence Jr. to tune in a bout or two before facing Terence Crawford in a bout next year or later.
Hunter felt former world welterweight champion Spence (28-1, 22 KO) was too obsessed with penalties in his ninth-round TKO defeat to Crawford (40-0, 31 KO) last month. already on July 29th and it is a risk to face He immediately rushed into the race unconsciously.
A key factor in Spence’s loss.
1. Termination of employment for 15 months
2. Weight Loss: Lose 40+ pounds in the camp.
3. Debris from a horrific car crash
4. Past eye surgery
Barry agreed that moving up to 154 would be a great idea for the 33-year-old Spence, given his large build. He should fight in different weight classes at this stage of his career since the start of his career.
Hunter didn’t say how long Spence should wait before fighting Crawford again. But two years is probably a good idea. Have Spence move up to 168 and put up 2-4 high quality bouts before looking to Crawford.
Crawford has moved up two weight classes from the division he started 15 years ago at the age of 135, and he’s helping him. If Spence did the same Now he would have punched 160, which is where Floyd Mayweather Jr. felt he should have punched 168 if not.
Spence likely won’t choose to move up to 160 or 168 for fear Crawford will decline, and is adamant the race will take place at 154 where he hopes to be an undisputed champion.
Crawford, though, will be keen to move up to 168 to face the winner of Canelo Alvarez vs. Jermell Charlo for the undisputed championship in the Sioux division. Per-middleweight But he likely won’t move up to that weight in the rematch against Spence.
Errol cannot be modified.
“The way he dominates that fight Terence left the fight without much injury,” trainer Barry Hunter told Fight Hub TV about Terence Crawford’s July 29 fight with Errol Spence Jr.
“Because of our relationship with Spence. Of course, you don’t want to see that because he’s special to us. However, you have to be happy for Crawford. that pulled what he pulled that night
“The only man in history to do that, that’s huge, I believe Terence. Crawford is a young talent. And is about to step up to the legendary position for sure
“I don’t want to say that because it erases what Terence did that night. If Errol wins, no one will say anything. I just think overall He shows who he is. and here is a man [Crawford] Some fell asleep when they first started boxing. And he’s still on the field.
“I don’t want to say that Errol didn’t train. I don’t know what he did. A long time ago I saw Errol, but on the other hand I saw one thing. [Crawford] make adjustments He can fight inside, outside, he can box, he can punch and Errol is almost at the same pace with no adjustments. So I think that cost him,” Hunter said.
Einstein is not required. to see that Spence had lost a lot of weight for his fight with Crawford.
All you have to do is look at Spence’s skeletal appearance during the weigh-in and observe how weak, lethargic & slow he is for battle to predict from there how exhausted he is. It was troubling that Hunter could not see himself.
“Who knows? IIt could be a layoff or the remnants of a car accident. You never know. But the reason I don’t want to say anything is He fought two famous people. [Yordenis Ugas & Danny Garcia]and nothing is a problem So I think Terence Crawford is who he is,” said Barry.
Of course, Spence had to deal with the witch’s dismissal. drastic weight loss Put Crawford through the same test and throw him in the ring against Spence, and the outcome will be completely different from what we saw last July.
Spence should postpone the Crawford race.
“If it were me, I would definitely wait.” Hunter said Spence had to wait before playing Spence: “If he [Errol] lost a close fight That’s one thing. but to receive the punishment that he received I will give him some time to let him recover from that.”
How long should Spence wait before fighting Crawford again? Sean Jones believes a minimum of two years is best for Spence to wait before engaging Crawford again. And only if he doesn’t lose weight or feel the effects of his mistake.
Wins Spence needs to rebuild himself at 168:
- David Benavidez
- Demetrius Andrade
- Caleb Plant
- David Morrell Jr.
“Maybe it will take one or two races before I hit that road again. You don’t want to see anyone seriously injured or killed in this sport. What stood out to me in that fight as well was Crawford’s accuracy. condemning everything he threw; It landed number one.
“Second, there was an exchange for one of the knockdowns. Terence throws an uppercut. Errol counterattacks with a throw. And it’s perfectly clean. It didn’t even move him. He immediately turned around and threw the hook out of the thing.
“Then I definitely want to go back some time. go back to the movies Talk to your team Consider what they think is wrong. Evaluate that and evaluate him. Then decide what you are going to do. But I’m definitely going to fight in the meantime.
“Errol, he’s a big guy. And I think at 154 he’ll do well at 154, but I’m definitely not going to jump on Crawford again. Take some time, stay calm, of course I’ll step back a bit. That’s what I’m going to do.
Should Errol retire?
“When you punish like that Most of the time is spent with the body. You also have a mental whooping cough,” Hunter said of Spence. “I don’t know if it will be like that. but vice versa Pride and other rubbish The rest was overlooked. and what people say, throw it away
“I will definitely reevaluate, and if he [Spence] lost love If he lost a step or two You may need to consider that. [retirement]But if hunger persists and you are able to cope with the situation physically and mentally, that’s fine, but take your time. do it the right way
“I think he can do it,” Hunter said when asked if Crawford could move up to 168 to challenge the winners of Canelo Alvarez vs. Jermell Charlo for the super middleweight championship. without argument “Terence is that kind of guy, it’s hard to bet against him. can you feel me
“You have to respect Charlo. [or Canelo] at that weight He’s been doing it for a long time and he’s one of the boxing stars. So he’s not someone you can mess with, that’s rubbish. I definitely think Terence could get promoted,” said Barry.
Don’t bet on Crawford.
“It’s hard to bet against Terence,” Hunter said when asked if he would like him compared to the 168th Jermell Charlo. You know you have to be prepared to deal with the fact that this man can unmask. A dime and he adjusts very quickly.
“The way his brain works He can quickly process information and respond to it. And the only other person I think that, and you know what to think about, is Shaker Stevenson.” That’s a rare trait that can process information quickly and respond to it. It’s unbelievable,” Hunter said.
