Former world welterweight champion Keith Thurman has accused WBC / IBF title holder Errol Spence of not wanting to fight him.
“I don’t know why he doesn’t want to have tough fights. All he does is fight fighters that I’ve already defeated. Right now Spence doesn’t want to fight one of the best in the welterweight division. It makes no sense. that Spence is trying to surpass me, although in the fight with Sean Porter he did not succeed.
Between 2015 and 2017, our fight with Spence wouldn’t have been a big one, but it doesn’t matter. We live today, not yesterday. This is real greatness. Greatness versus greatness. I have combined titles before, and Spence is now the unified champion.
You know, I come back after losing to Pacquiao, but he is still fighting my former opponents. Spence acts like he doesn’t want to fight me. It’s shallow, bro, “said Keith Thurman.
