Spence believes he is the best in his division, above Terence Crawford, who beat Kell Brook in devastating fashion in his last fight.

But the modest Texan is not yet hailing himself as the greatest fighter on the planet just yet.

Here, he explains his top five to Fox Sports.

Canelo Alvarez – 54–1–2

Errol Spence Jr: Canelo Alvarez, I’d put him as number one because he’s won titles at 154, 160, 168 and 175.

Roman Gonzalez – 50–2

ES: Number two, I’ll put ‘Chocolatito’. I’m a big fan of his.

I just feel like he’s a great fighter and I don’t think he gets the due that he deserves for beating a lot of opponents in the way he beats opponents.

Errol Spence Jr – 27-0

ES: Number three, I’d put myself.

Because I’m just a great fighter, I have fought the best in my weight class, I’ve beaten them and I’m the unified champion.

Hopefully I will become undisputed champion in a year or two.
