Terrence Crawford ‘DRAINED’ … Initially Missed Making Weight To Fight Errol Spence!!

Lyndon Abioye |

Tonight is the biggest fight of the year for boxing, Superstars Terrence Crawford is fighting Errol Spence for the welterweight title tonight in Las Vegas.

Both fighters made weight, clearing the final hurdle for their battle to crown an undisputed welterweight champion. But Media Take Out is hearing reports that Terrence Crawford initially weighed 1.2 pounds heavier than the contracted weight.

According to a TRUSTED boxing insider, who spoke to Media Tswke Out on the condition of anonymity, “Terrence weighed 148.2 and had to go lose the extra weight.”

We’re told that Terrence left the weigh in room for about an hour, and he returned looking completely dehydrated. The insider added, “He looked really bad when he came back, but he made it.”

Fighters who have difficulty making weight typically are less effective on fight day. We’ll have to see if that’s the case with this fight.

Spence (28-0, 22 KO), the reigning WBC, IBF and WBA champion, tipped the scales at the welterweight limit of 147 pounds. WBO champion Crawford (39-0, 30 KO) came in slightly lighter at 146.8 pounds. Crawford is the naturally smaller man, having come up through his career from winning world titles at lightweight to becoming undisputed champion at junior welterweight before landing at welterweight where fans have been salivating at the thought of a clash with Spence.

Spence has competed his entire career at welterweight and is large for the division. He also has hinted that the Crawford fight will be his last at 147 pounds, though the bilateral rematch clause for the fight says the winner will be able to dictate the weight for the rematch, meaning if Crawford wins, he could force Spence to make the cut one more time.
