Former three-division champion Shane Mosley leans slightly towards Terence Crawford in the upcoming undisputed matchup with Errol Spence.
On July 29 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, the two undefeated welterweights will face off for the WBC, IBF, WBA and WBO world titles in the Showtime Pay-Per-View main event.
Crawford was more active, but not much. Crawford has fought three times in the last three years while Spence – due to injury – has only fought twice in the last three years.
Both boxers appear to be at the top of their game.
Mosley, who himself had a blockbuster welterweight bout with Oscar De La Hoya in 2000, is expecting a very competitive matchup.
Both boxers have punching power, but Mosley expects the fight to go the full twelve rounds.
“I’m leaning more towards Terence now (due to the) activity, but that doesn’t really mean anything – because Errol Spence could be sparring at the gym, training with the Charlo Brothers and all, and we don’t know anything about him. prepare now,” Mosley told Fighthype.com.
“It’s a 50-50 fight, but it looks like we just want to see it already. It seems like if it was going to be a knockout he would lean more towards Terence Crawford, but I can see that this fight is probably going to be long range due to the way both of them fight.
“Errol is a really good boxer, he has a good chin. Terence is a good fighter; he can fight orthodox or southpaw. I see this fight can go the distance. There can be good moments in a fight where maybe they both hit the ground – but I can see him going from afar.”
