Al fell in controversy when he advised Errol Spence Jr. to fight against Terence Crawford. Further, Terence’s promoter, Bob Arum, also opened saying, Al will discourage Errol to fight with Terence.
Yeah, I know it’s a bit confusing, but let me make it clear for you. Bob, in an interview, told that he and Crawford are ready to battle against Errol, but he thinks that Al will stop his client Errol to fight with Crawford.
Crawford, who recently fought against Amir Khan, accidentally hit him with a low-blow. Although he clearly wasn’t cheating and hadn’t hit Amir in his private parts, many assumed that it was intentional. Is that what Al is worried about as well?
Al, who doesn’t appear much in media, has remained silent about the incident. It might also be the reason that Bob is making the heat to grow bigger and making things complicated for both parties. Additionally, Adrien Broner, Zab Judah, and Tim Witherspoon are popular American boxers.
