Crawford Favored in Opening Boxing Odds

Crawford is regarded by many as the pound-for-pound best boxer in the world today. This bout would finally determine an undisputed welterweight world champion. It would also put to rest the discourse around which of these two is the superior pugilist.

Some of the wording in my article is centric on the past timeline of this fight. One that infamously saw a November booking of this bout fall apart in October.

That being said, this iteration of the super fight talks strikes me as more credible. I think the likelihood of this fight transpiring in a couple of months is strong.

There is a unique rematch clause in this fight where a possible sequel affair would have to take place before the end of the year. Also of note is that the rematch would take place in a higher-weight category.

A sequel affair with possible major title implications for the winner at 154 pounds thereafter.

Spence Jr an underdog vs Crawford

Spence Jr is also regarded among the top pound-for-pound fighters in the sport today. He is also right up there with Crawford as one of the more revered 147-pound combatants in the sweet science presently.

Errol Spence Jr holds the WBC, WBA, and IBF belts opposite Crawford’s WBO title. This fight would determine the first-ever undisputed welterweight champion of the four-belt era. The winner will certainly carve out a meaningful place in the history books for themselves.

Terence Crawford and Errol Spence Jr were long hindered by being part of separate promotional entities.

This is no longer the case and the roadblocks have been removed that kept this long-awaited, mega-fight from transpiring.

Expected Spence Jr vs Crawford Odds Movement

In terms of how the odds will move closer to the fight, I feel like Errol Spence Jr will become a touch less of an underdog.

Both men have perfect records here, someone’s 0 has got to go, and I think perhaps some wonder about Spence Jr health-wise. This exists in the context of some of the serious card accidents he has had in recent years. In addition to the residual health issues with that, Spence Jr has had eye issues, not all that long ago either.

Both are tremendously skilled combatants but in a  fight of this magnitude, every variable gets put under the microscope by pundits and fans alike as the prizefight looms closer.

Crawford is someone who seems to have few if any holes in his game and while Spence Jr is obviously exemplary, it’s hard for me to see ‘Bud’ as an underdog against anyone at 147 pounds or even in the weight category higher.

That being said, this is a supremely exciting fight and should ignite the spirit of anyone who enjoys combat sports.
