In the past, Errol Spence Jr has claimed he is interested in fighting the current lineal middleweight, champion Canelo Alvarez. In recent interview Golden Boy promotion CEO Oscar Dela Hoya has said that he also wants to make that fight happen and has also called it a future ‘Super Fight’.
”Absolutely, Canelo is always willing to fight the best,” De La Hoya said to Fighthub when asked if he’d be willing to fight Errol Spence Jr. ”I believe a fighter like Errol Spence Jr. can come up a couple of weight divisions and challenge a fighter like Canelo and that’ll be a super fight, but you have to come and talk to us because we would know how to stage that type of event.”
Dela Hoya said that Spence would need to move up to Middleweight division for the fight to take place.
Right now, it’s clear that Canelo Alvarez is the only true PPV superstar in Boxing and Errol Spence recently fought in front of a sold-out crowd in Texas and the fight was also attended by the owner of Dallas Cowboys Jerry Jones. If Spence continues to raise his profile than without a doubt Canelo vs Spence will turn out to be a super fight.
