Terence Crawford’s confidence in beating Errol Spence Jr will be conveyed in his ring gear on Saturday, when the Americans clash to crown an undisputed welterweight champion.

Crawford, 35, and Spence, 33, are both unbeaten ahead of their bout at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, where Crawford’s WBO belt will be up for grabs, along with Spence’s WBC, WBA and IBF titles.

At the first press conference for this contest, deemed by many as the biggest fight in a decade, Crawford joked that he had already caught the ‘Big Fish’, as Spence refers to himself, and that all that was left was to ‘reel him in’. That concept has been carried across to Crawford’s ring gear, The Independent can confirm after getting an exclusive look at the outfit.

“Of course he’s fighting Errol Spence Jr, who’s known as the ‘Big Fish’, so the concept behind the outfit is a fisherman,” said Imtayaz Qassim of Bespoke Boxing, where Crawford’s outfit was designed and created.

“My studio is based on the Welsh coast, so I was able to do a lot of research into deep-sea fishing, the fabrics and hardware they use, and I was able to implement that into the actual design itself.
