Errol Spence Interview To Air During Harrison-Charlo II Fox Telecast

By Chris Williams: Welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr. will be interviewed tonight for the first time since his terrible car crash two months ago on October 10. There's been a massive amount of speculation about the injuries the 29-year-old Spence sustained in his car crash last October, and now he'll get a chance to let the boxing public know the full details. Spence trashed his high-priced Ferrari 488 Spider in the car crash. Bob Arum doubts Spence will fight soon Top Rank promoter Bob Arum said recently that his sources had told him that Spence won't be back fighting in the foreseeable future due to his car crash. Arum raised doubts whether Spence would be able to fight WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford in 2020 or 2021.

Although Muhammad Ali was able to come back and still fight effectively after missing 3 years in the prime of his career, few fighters can miss that amount of time and do well. "I have grave doubts whether Errol Spence will be back in the ring in the foreseeable future, unfortunately as that may be. Arum says his "inside intelligence" has told him that Spence won't be back in action in the "foreseeable future," whatever that means. You can argue that it would be good for Crawford and Arum if Spence doesn't come back soon from his car crash, because his guy Terence could lose. There's some big fights available for Spence if/when he does return to the ring starting with a unification match against Crawford.

Spence recently defeated WBC welterweight champion Shawn Porter (30-3-1, 17 KOs) in winning an exciting 12 round split decision on September 28 on Fox Sports Pay-Per-View. The victory for Spence won him a lot of new boxing fans. They were looking forward to seeing him defend against Danny Garcia next on January 25, but that won't happen now. Harrison (28-2, 21 KOs) and Charlo (32-1, 16 KOs) are the headline attraction on tonight's Fox PBC card. The unbeaten, unified welterweight titlist from Desoto, Texas will make his first televised appearance in more than two months as he will appear in an exclusive interview during this weekend's offering of Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) on Fox (Saturday, 8:00pm ET).

The exclusive will come as part of a Fox-televised tripleheader, topped by the highly anticipated rematch between reigning junior middleweight titlist Tony Harrison and former beltholder Jermell Charlo. Given the two months worth of media and public demand—often reaching points of a false sense of entitlement—it seems that a first look at present-day Spence will draw even greater attention to the telecast. Spence Jr. was hospitalized for six days following his single-car crash on Oct. 10, after which he was charged with a single count of Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), filed as a Class B misdemeanor for which he not will be required to serve jail time. Spence (26-0, 21KOs) is coming off of a thrilling 12-round split decision win over Shawn Porter (30-3-1, 17KO) in their welterweight title unification clash this past September in Los Angeles, California. The bout aired live on Fox Sports Pay-Per-View, as did Spence's other win on the year, a 12-round shutout of Mikey Garcia in their battle of unbeaten pound-for-pound entrants this past March in Arlington, Texas.

With the victory, Garcia successfully lined himself up with unified Welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr. Yet, with Spence suffering serious injuries due to a horrific car accident, their contest was postponed. It was an opportunity that Garcia was looking forward too, but if there is one thing life has taught not just Garcia but every and anyone, is that time stops for no man. "Yeah, definitely my mindset was fighting Spence," said Garcia during a recent press conference in Brooklyn, New York. With the recent choice of Ivan Redkach as his next opponent, fans have once again shown Garcia a bit of criticism for the choice. Still, the question remains, just how can a contest against Ivan Redkach possibly lead Garcia to memorable 2020? If Garcia can successfully defeat Redkach on the 25th of January, he will position himself for a possible showdown with some of the bigger names in the division. But for now, Redkach makes a lot of sense because he is a southpaw and I'm going to be fighting a southpaw after I get this victory so I'll already be ready for a southpaw. In a career that has spanned almost a decade and a half, Garcia has built his name on the backs of the great fighters he has defeated inside of the ring. With a victory against Redkach, Garcia will once again be in line to take on one of the biggest names in the division. Come January 25th, it's going to be the Danny Garcia show. Errol Spence Jr. successfully defended his IBF world welterweight title for the third time, unanimously outpointing previously undefeated challenger Mikey Garcia on Saturday night. Garcia moved up two weight classes to take on Spence and took a pounding though he never went down. Spence improved to 25-0 after all three judges awarded him every round. It was the first time Spence had to go the distance in his last 12 fights. Garcia, who moved up to the 147-pound division from the 135-pound division in his attempt to become a five-division champion, lost for the first time in 40 pro fights.
