Spence Jr. and Crawford kick off promotional tour

Errol Spence Jr. and Terence Crawford kicked off their promotional tour with big events in Beverly Hills and New York, where they starred in two massive events in the lead-up to their July 29 bout in Las Vegas.

The two top welterweights will put all their belts on the line in one of the most important fights for the division in recent years.

Spence Jr. holds the World Boxing Association (WBA) belt as well as the IBF and WBC belts, while Crawford is the WBO champion. The undisputed title bout is one of the most talked about fights in recent years and is now a reality.

Los Angeles was the first destination for the two champions. A city full of boxing where the sport is alive and has always been key to the industry. The second was New York, a historic city where some of the greatest fights of all time have taken place and which has a multicultural audience attracted to boxing.

Both talked about the importance of the fight and their desire to get a win to become the best in the category and mark an era at 147 pounds. They know the magnitude of the fight and all the struggle to reach the agreement, so they are happy to be able to give the public what they were asking for and measure the best against the best.

The promotion of the fight will continue in the coming days as both prepare for the big fight at the end of July.
