Crawford previously disregarded the eye injury claims as he pointed out a basic boxing rule. He stated “Last I can recall we definitely get our eyes checked before every fight I’m just saying. Any boxer would know that. But casual fans will say and make up anything.”

Terence Crawford pulled off an extremely comfortable victory over Errol Spence Jr. last July via a 9th round TKO to become the undisputed champion in two weight classes. This made him the first male to accomplish this feat in the four belt era.

Terence Crawford beats Errol Spence Jr. comfortably

Errol was undefeated before he faced Crawford. He boasted a 28-0 record and was the WBC, IBF and WBA (Super) Welterweight champion. He was considered a major contender to beat the undefeated Crawford. However, he looked very vulnerable in the bout, getting caught with a barrage of jabs and hooks. Post the loss, Errol activated his rematch clause.

Crawford has probably made it clear he’s not interested in the Errol Spence Jr. rematch anymore. Teofimo Lopez took a dig at Crawford and stated he only fought injured opponents, to which Crawford replied viciously.

Despite the overall details of the clauses being unknown, Terence Crawford’s tweet suggests he could pull out of the rematch or the rematch has to take place in a certain time-frame. Errol Spence Jr. will be out for at least a couple of weeks too. It would be interesting to see who Crawford fights next.
