In the world of sports, triumph and defeat are inevitable companions. Terence Crawford, a seasoned winner, has always been acquainted with victory, but as the fateful date of July 29th approaches, the possibility of a different outcome looms on the horizon.

The anticipation for the long-awaited showdown between Crawford and Errol Spence Jr. has reached its peak. Both fighters have expressed their eagerness to face each other, and the trash talk has nearly subsided.

Despite the matchup being considered a 50/50 chance, Crawford's dedication shines through in his intense training sessions, where sweat pours down and pains are endured, all in the name of boosting his self-assurance. "I train too hard to think about losing," Crawford affirmed during an episode of All-Access, emphasizing his commitment to victory and his determination to banish any negative thoughts that may arise.

Nonetheless, banishing those negative thoughts is no simple task, not because Crawford lacks belief in himself, but rather because he is well aware of the formidable challenges that Spence presents. The Dallas native has already faced and bested some of the world's finest fighters, scarcely breaking a sweat in the process.

Spence's track record speaks volumes. He dominated against an undefeated four-division champion, Mikey Garcia, in 2019, and even a horrific car wreck couldn't deter him from triumphing over Danny Garcia a year later. Most recently, he forced a corner stoppage against the tough and resilient Yordenis Ugas, fracturing his right orbital bone in the process. 

Crawford has certainly taken note of Spence's destructive capabilities. While perfection has been a defining aspect of Crawford's career so far, he admits that the notion of losing does occasionally creep into his mind, despite previously downplaying such thoughts. 

However, he remains steadfast in his endeavor to keep those doubts at bay, drawing strength from his powerful mind. "Does it cross my mind? Yeah, it always crosses my mind. What if? But my mind is so strong that it keeps those negative thoughts out," Crawford asserted, highlighting his mental resilience as a crucial asset in maintaining focus and positivity.

As the day of reckoning approaches, Terence Crawford and Errol Spence Jr. are poised to deliver an electrifying contest. While Crawford acknowledges the possibility of defeat, his unwavering mental strength serves as a shield against pessimism, propelling him forward with the confidence of a true champion.
