ERROL SPENCE JR is ready to finally take on Terence Crawford in what may be an undisputed blockbuster title fight.
The unified WBC and IBF champion returns April 16 in a unification bout in Texas with Yordenis Ugas defending his WBA belt.
For the winner, the only title missing to complete the undisputed crown would be the WBO strap owned by Crawford, 34.
And with the American now a free agent, he’s one step closer to a superfight with Spence, 31.
But the also-undefeated Texan has vowed to become a three-belt holder first to set up the undisputed decider.
Spence told DAZN: “When I speak to my manager, the people he deals with now, I think it’s a lot easier to get done.
“We’ll see what happens after the Ugas thing. If I have three belts.
“A lot of people want me to say this and that, but the proof is in the pudding of what I do.
“I’m fighting for my third belt, let’s put something on the table so I can fight for a fourth belt.”
Spence was struggling for boxing legend Manny Pacquiao, 43, last August until he retired with an eye injury.
Ugas, 35, instead stepped in as a substitute to beat Pacquiao and eventually see the Filipino icon retire.
Spence said: “He’s a solid fighter, he’s from the Cuban boxing school, solid fundamentals.
“He has a good stepback, throws good body shots, good jab. He is basically healthy. He makes a few mistakes but I like him.”
