Former world champion in two weights and former leader of the pound-for-pound rating, American Andre Ward assessed the chances of organizing a unification fight in welterweight (up to 66.7 kg) between members of the pound-for-pound rating Terence Crawford (37 -0-0, 28 KO) and Errol Spence Jr. (26-0-0, 21 KO).
“My answer is yes. They [Top Rank и PBC] can do this, because they are not the first time to negotiate. If two fighters really want to fight, this happens.
But Errol Spence is holding an ace. Because all the applicants are on his side. And you are not able to force him to do what you want. If I were in his place, it is not a fact that I would have acted differently. His advisor has a Harvard degree and doesn’t play checkers. I am not some kind of marginal not to reckon with this. I understand how business works, ”Ward said.
