Spence: Crawford, Pacquiao Got One Person To Talk To - Al Haymon!

Errol Spence Jr. loves the thought of remaining a Pay-Per-View headliner.

With that comes the responsibility of taking on the sport’s best, and the unbeaten, unified welterweight titlist is game for the cause.

“Line ‘em up, line ‘em up,” Spence told Premier Boxing Champions’ Ray Flores during a recent open media workout live from his training camp in Dallas.

Spence (26-0, 21KOs) has a dangerous task ahead, as he prepares for a showdown with Philadelphia’s former two-division champion Danny Garcia (36-2, 21KOs) on December 5 at AT&T Stadium in nearby Arlington, Texas. The bout marks Spence’s third straight PPV headliner, including twice from the state-of-the-art home of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys which is expected to draw more than 20,000 socially distanced fans in attendance.

It also serves as the first for Spence since fully recovering from a horrific car crash last October in downtown Dallas. The 30-year old southpaw from Desoto, Texas refused to settle on a soft touch for his first fight back, instead agreeing to renew his previously scheduled clash with Garcia.

The two were due to square off this past January, only for Spence’s hospitalization and subsequent recovery process delaying those plans. The bout was further delayed by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which in a sense allowed Spence to completely heal and whip himself into prime physical condition.

Now back in full swing, the eight-year pro and top welterweight continues to hear his name mentioned alongside fellow unbeaten pound-for-pound entrant Terence Crawford (37-0, 28KOs), who also owns a 147-pound belt. The division’s other major titlist, legendary Filipino southpaw Manny Pacquiao (62-7-2, 39KOs) remains a person of interest in offering full clarity atop the talent-laden division.

Assuming all goes well versus Garcia on December 5, Spence vows to make brings these fights to reality in the year ahead.

“They all know there’s one person to talk to, and that’s [adviser and PBC creator] Al Haymon,” notes Spence, a career-long promotional free agent. “They got one person to talk to and we can get this fight on the road.

“They already know, after I put on this great show December 5th—whoever else in my way, let’s get it.”

[QUOTE=Bigchip;20900387]Typical bittcchhazz response. Now it’s talk to Alan Haymon. Last year it was “I’m my own promoter. I don’t answer to anyone.” This guy is a hypocrite. I’m pulling for Danny to KO this guy. At least I know Danny…

[QUOTE=Bluebird;20905953]I am a Pac fan but I didn’t hate everything Mayweather did, I think fighting McGregor was a brilliant idea "money wise”, Muhammad Ali fought Inoki, a Japanese professional wrestler in the ‘70s although it’s not a boxing match. Like…

[QUOTE=Sid-Knee;20909517]You think they would do a successful PPV in the middle of the day in the US? No they wouldn't. They have said many times they wouldn't. Wilder did poor numbers at prime time in the US with Ortiz. What…

[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll;20909504]I already answered this question. 15 million was a lowball offer because of what Wilder means to the American PPV side of the equation. Is that clear enough for you? How many more times do you want me to answer…

[QUOTE=Sid-Knee;20909389]I'm asking you why 15 Mill was a lowball offer if Wilder was a nobody in the UK? Stop f3cking deflecting all the time. I know what you're doing.[/QUOTE] I already answered this question. 15 million was a lowball offer…
