More about Errol Spence Jr. and Terence Crawford’s issue with boxing
Terence Crawford admitted last November that he has directly contacted Errol Spence Jr. and his manager, Al Haymon, to reach a decision.
In addition, he said that he was ‘taking all the risks’ and was even willing to accept less money. However, Spence’s team did not provide enough transparency to satisfy his concern.
Regardless, Crawford’s statements prompted Spence to address the situation on his official social media account.
One of his tweets read, ‘He claims that his concerns over having transparency on the revenues and expenses for the fight was the big issue that killed the negotiations. my side agreed to show him everything.’
In another message he wrote, ‘He talking about he didn’t have a guarantee & he was taking all the risk mf I didn’t have a guarantee just a higher percentage!’
Meanwhile, Crawford opted to retort with a short order.
He replied with, ‘If he was so called his own boss then why I had to talk to Al? that’s right I couldn’t talk to you because when I did you said you had to talk to yo people. You can fool all yo little fans that don’t know who you really is but you can’t fool me.’
