Crawford won the toss, so he will get to decide on Saturday whether he ringwalks second, a privilege normally afforded to the champion in a fight.

That ring entrance in Las Vegas could be special. This week has also seen Eminem reach out to Crawford on social media.

Beneath a video on his Instagram, in which Crawford discusses who he’d like to walk him to the ring with Shakur Stevenson, Eminem commented: “This is crazy. You are one of my favourite boxers.”

With only the weigh-in left to go, the fight itself will be preoccupying the minds of both fighters. This will be the hardest as well as the most significant contest of either’s career.

“He’s going to find out that my skills are superior,” Spence said at the final press conference. “He’s going to see that I have great offence, defence and stamina. It’s more than just talent.

“I’m going to win because I’m the better fighter. I’m better physically and mentally. I’m more durable. I’m going break him down and break his will.”

Crawford certainly disagreed with that claim.

“Everything about me is better than Errol. When you look at what I do in the ring, it’s better than what he does. Come fight night, I’m going to prove every doubter wrong. I’m going to show that I’m the best fighter in the world,” Crawford said.

“This is the Terence Crawford era. When you look at my body of work in each weight class, you can’t deny that. This is my era. I’ve never had a close fight. I’ve never had a fight where people thought I lost. I’ve looked spectacular every time.”

It’s a contest of the highest quality in which both men expect to deliver.

“People are going to talk about this fight 30 or 40 years from now when you talk about legendary fights. They’re going to talk about this fight the same way they talked about the ‘Four Kings’ era,” Spence Jr said.

“This is going to be legendary.”
