Spence on Thurman, Garcia: Haymon Can't Make Them Fight Me

By Ryan Burton

IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence (23-0) recently met with the media in Las Vegas and discussed a variety of topics in his boxing career.

Next up for Spence is his IBF mandatory challenger Carlos Ocampo (22-0).  The June 16th fight will be a Dallas homecoming for the Texas resident.

Spence has called out the big names in the division but so far none of them appear very eager to face him in the ring.  He said that he plans on staying active even if the big fights don't come his way.

"With Keith Thurman being injured again it looks like his date is getting pushed back. I don't know when he is fighting again so I don't know which is a big fight for me right now.  Then you have Danny Garcia who is supposed to fight Shawn Porter for the mandatory WBC so I don't know but I am going to stay busy though," he explained.

Thurman, Garcia, Porter and Spence are all managed by Al Haymon but Spence said that even though they share the same management team, there isn't any guarantee he will be able to fight any of them. He said that Haymon can only do so much and can't force anyone to fight if they aren't willing to take the fight.

"It's in black and white. I have been calling these guys out. We all have the same managers. We all talk to one person and he already wanted me to fight these guys but he can't make them fight," Spence explained.

"At the end of the day he is the manager to them too and he is looking for their best interest too. I can't make these guys fight. All I can do is stay busy, stay in the ring and stay sharp."

If Haymon can’t make the most competitive and exciting fights when he’s controlling some of the top fighters in the sport then he is bad for boxing. At least if they aren’t fighting each other he should be making them…
