When the fight was first reported, the terms for the bout was said to include a rematch clause that was applicable to either fighter within 30 days after July 29th, and that a trilogy would be likely should Spence and Crawford split the first two bouts. From there, Spence, if not him and Crawford, are expected to move up to 154 lbs.
As it stands Spence vs Crawford is scheduled to take place the same night at UFC 291 that features Dustin Poirier vs Justin Gaethje 2 and Jan Blachowicz vs Alex Pereira among other bouts, setting up for an action packed night.
Spence, 33, and Crawford, 35, are widely regarded as the top two welterweight fighters and arguably two of the top five fighters pound for pound in the world.
Crawford (39-0, 30 KOs) a three division champion, currently holds the WBO welterweight title since 2018. He most recently scored a sixth round knockout on David Avanesyan this past December.
Meanwhile, Spence (28-0, 22 KOs) is the current WBA, WBC, and IBF champion. His last showing was April 2022 where the former 2012 Olympian stopped Yordenis Ugas in the 10th round via knockout.
The fight could not be any more perfect than right now for both men to meet. Both undefeated, both at the height of their powers, both champions looking to claim the absolute peak of supremacy.
