"Sugar" Shane Mosley has predicted his winner of Spence-Crawford
Former triple world champion "Sugar" Shane Mosley has predicted his winner of Errol Spence Jr. vs Terence Crawford and provides his exact reason why.
Speaking to Sporting Post, 51-year-old Mosley analysed this Saturday's showdown between Errol Spence and Terence Crawford at the T-Mobile Arena, live on SHOWTIME in the U.S. and TNT Sports in the UK.
Here's what the Californian sporting legend had to say, "I'm leaning towards Terence Crawford because he's been more active and he has a winning mentality. Errol Spence also has a winning mentality, but when you've been in a big car accident like Errol has, your body breaks down, and it's difficult to be 100 percent and he needs to be 100 percent against Crawford.
"At first when the fight was announced, my instinct was Spence might outbox Crawford, or at least move around being too technical for him. But then I started to hang out with Terence a little bit and I saw his mentality is different to other fighters. He really showed me that he's a fighter. He's also not too small – he's just as big as Spence – so I'm predicting Terence will give him some problems.
"But it's a 50-50 fight no doubt and I wouldn't be surprised if Spence beat Terence. I could see both guys winning, but at this moment I'm leaning towards Terence because of Spence's accident and because Spence hasn't been as active as Terence."
