Bob Arum: "It’ll Take Probably Three Hours To Do A Crawford-Spence Fight"

The welterweight division's world champions are constantly teasing title unifications and Top Rank CEO Bob Arum wants to see his champion, Terence Crawford, fight fellow champion Errol Spence Jr.

But with Crawford being promoted by Top Rank and Spence being a part of the Premier Boxing Champions stable, negotiating such a fight would, in theory, be a tough one to make. If one were to ask Arum, he felt confident that he could easily make the fight, if Spence was interested. In an interview with Fight Hub TV, Arum said there should be no issue in making a fight the two respective champions.

"Also, there’s no reason to do any fights for Terence or for Spence unless they fight each other. But again, it takes two to tango. I really mean that, I’m not playing games. You know, they wanna make that fight, they can make it. It’ll take probably three hours to do a Crawford-Spence fight,” Arum said.

Crawford, the WBO welterweight champion, has publicly said numerous times that he wants to unify the division and that includes fighting Spence, the IBF champion. Crawford recently defended his world title on October 13 with a 12th round TKO win over Jose Benavidez Jr., Crawford's first welterweight title defense.

Spence, on the other hand, does not have a fight date scheduled after his latest title defense saw him defeat Carlos Ocampo back in June 16. Earlier this year, Spence appeared headed towards a fight against unified lightweight champion Mikey Garcia, but those talks have cooled off. After Shawn Porter defeated Danny Garcia to win the vacant WBC welterweight title back in September, Spence entered the ring and teased a potential unification fight, but so far, nothing has been announced regarding such a fight.
