Rematch Clause : Terence Crawford was not impressed with Errol Spence’s attempts to muscle in on his potential fight with Sebastian Fundora.

Both men are actively pursuing a contest against the new WBC and WBO super-welterweight champion after the ‘Towering Inferno’ beat Tim Tszyu on Saturday night to claim the belts.

Fundora’s win was a bloodbath with Tszyu sustaining a horror cut in the second round after being caught with an accidental elbow.

Tszyu valiantly fought on but was unable to do enough to get his hand raised as he fell to the first defeat of his professional career via split decision.

In the immediate aftermath, Spence entered the ring to call out Fundora and drum up interest in their potential fight.

“It’s time to get it on, he’s got the big dog now,” said Spence.

“This is my first time seeing him in person and he’s got pretty good height but we will break him down, we always do.”

The imposing 6ft 6ins champion then replied: “I think it will be great [fighting him].

“He’s one of the greats right now, he’s one of the pound-for-pounds, so if I can fight him and get a win off of him it will be good history for me again.”

However Crawford, who is the WBO mandatory challenger for Fundora, had a thing or two to say about his former foe’s attempts to jump the queue.

“@ErrolSpenceJr sorry buddy you gotta wait in line sir,” he tweeted.

“You lost sir gotta work yo way back up,” he added in reference to his stoppage victory over Spence last July.

The preeminent designation is reserved for fighters who are champions of ‘high recognition’.

Oleksandr Usyk previously used his WBO ‘super champion’ status to become Anthony Joshua’s mandatory in 2021.
