WATCH: Terence Crawford beats Errol Spence Jr. in ceremonial coin toss conducted by Mike Tyson


On Saturday, July 29, Crawford and Spence Jr. will meet inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, for one of the biggest boxing matches of the decade. The undefeated superstars will fight for more than legacy, as the undisputed welterweight title (147 pounds) is up for grabs.

Before settling their differences in the ring, the world-class boxers had other business to settle. They came face-to-face on Thursday evening with Mike Tyson conducting a coin toss to determine who would get to walk out first. Crawford called heads and was announced the winner after Tyson flipped the coin.

Terence Crawford will put his 39-0 (30 KO/TKOs) record on the line against Spence Jr. The 35-year-old is coming off a sixth-round knockout win against David Avanesyan in December 2022. He now looks to capitalize on his WBO welterweight title and secure the other three to become the undisputed king.


Meanwhile, Errol Spence Jr. holds a record of 28-0, with 22 wins coming by KO/TKO. The 33-year-old last fought in April 2022, defeating Yordenis Ugas by a tenth-round TKO. ‘The Truth’ holds the IBF, WBA, and WBC welterweight titles, with Crawford’s WBO strap being the missing piece.

Four years later, Spence Jr. is thankful to be alive and preparing for a massive boxing match. He voiced his gratitude on Twitter by saying:


“grateful to be in my position. thought my career was over a few times back to back to back but I’m still here .. let’s get it my story far from over 🤝🏾❤️”
