But after Crawford, 34, walked out on Bob Arum’s Top Rank stable to become a free agent, talk of the dream matchup ramped up.

And with the pair of unbeaten champions taking out the rest of the competition – it means neither will have anywhere else to go.

Spence, 32, told SunSport: “I think it can definitely happen, it’s a huge possibility.

“He don’t have any dancing partners at 147 that makes sense for him.  So I think it can definitely happen.”

Spence is the reigning WBC and IBF king and unifies his belts with the WBA version held by Yordenis Ugas, 35, live on Showtime PPV.

It means the Texan could be a three-belt holder by the time he faces Crawford, owner of the WBO strap.

And that sets up and unprecedented undisputed title decider between two of boxing’s pound-for-pound best in their prime of their careers.

Spence said: “I feel like it will be at its biggest level, especially with me beating Ugas. 

“Fighting for four belts is at the highest level, but for me I’ve got to get past Ugas.

“I have to get past him because if I don’t get past him, then it doesn’t happen.”

Spence was last August set to face Filipino legend Manny Pacquiao, 43, until an eye injury saw him replaced by Ugas.

The Cuban later beat Pacquiao, sending the eight-division icon into retirement and setting up the unification in Texas.

Spence returns to Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium aware he is just one win away from the biggest fight in American boxing.

But equally all that is on the line be be snatched away in just one night – and Ugas knows exactly how to rip up the box office script.

Spence said: “I’ve got one person ahead of me that’s trying to knock my head off.

“So I’ve got to make sure I get him out of the way before I start thinking about anything else. 

No data found

“If you don’t have that mentality, that’s how a lot of fighters get upset and get beat. 

“Because they’re looking at other people when you’ve got someone right in front of you, training just for you.

“That’s my mentality, to just focus on Ugas and my opponents right in front of me.”
