In separate interviews, Hall of Fame coach Freddie Roach has made his bold prediction for the highly-anticipated showdown between Errol Spence Jr. and Terence “Bud” Crawford at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Roach, excited to witness two of the best fighters in the world facing off, believes Crawford will emerge victorious in the undisputed welterweight world title fight in Las Vegas on July 29 (July 30, in Manila.)

Citing Crawford’s boxing skills and ability to adapt, Roach sees him boxing his way to victory and establishing himself as one of the best fighters in the world today. Despite Spence’s punching power, Roach’s prediction favors Crawford as the ultimate winner of the monumental clash.
