To Chris Williams: Trainer Kenny Porter said Errol Spence Jr. was too big for Terrence Crawford and would beat him if the two finally got to fight.
Crawford came out of talks for a fight late last year (26-0, 21 KOs) and chose to play it safe, defending his WBO welterweight strap against David Avanesian on Dec. Knocked him out in the 6th round.
Some boxing fans believe the 35-year-old Crawford (39-0, 30 KOs) lost his nerve for fear that his unbeaten record against Spence was in jeopardy. .
If Crawford chooses to go through with it in his negotiations with Spence this year, he could be defeated for the first time, assuming there’s a second round of negotiations.
As most people know, Crawford will soon be old and wish he had fought Spence.
At this point, it’s unclear if PBC will give Crawford a second chance to fight Spence.
If you rescue a superstar and make him look like a dunce, you may never get a second chance to pull the football out from under him.
“Spence,” Kenny Porter told Fight Hub TV when asked who would win the Errol Spence Jr. vs. Terrence Crawford fight. “Erroll Spence is the bigger guy in Fight Night.

“I think it’s going to be the distance, but I think he’ll win. No, Spence won’t go down. It won’t happen. He won’t go down. It won’t happen. Listen, he won’t go down.” he is a dog
“I’ve seen him do this for years, ever since he was an amateur,” Kenny said of Spence. “He has the ability to win that fight.” [against Crawford] And just about anyone else will come along as long as he wants to,” Kenny said of Errol.
