TNT Sports make huge mistake on Terence Crawford vs Errol Spence Jr live TV broadcast leaving viewers bemused | The Sun
BRITISH boxing fans were left stunned by a huge broadcasting gaffe from TNT Sports.
The Warner Brothers' owned broadcaster aired the entire card for the historic undisputed welterweight title fight between Errol Spence Jr and Terence Crawford in Las Vegas.
TNT Sports broadcast Crawford's dominant win on pay-per-view in the United Kingdom.
But eagle-eyed boxing fans noticed they accidentally made a major gaffe with their graphics during the prelims.
During a break between the action, they shared a fight card which showed Crawford fighting former interim WBO heavyweight champion Joe Joyce.
And to make matters worse, Crawford's name was misspelt and Joyce's fellow British heavyweight Daniel Dubois also featured on the incorrect card.
Fight fans were quick to comment, with one tweeting: "Teerence Crawford’ fighting Joe Joyce in the main event."
Another said: "Terence Crawford vs Joe Joyce in the main event and Daniel Dubois vs Joe Joyce X3 on the undercard.
"Big night of action coming up in Las Vegas."
And another said: "I am so confused, what have Daniel Dubois and Joe Joyce got to do with anything."

One remarked: "I don’t know if Joe Joyce would make 10 & a half stone…"
Another chimed in: "Joe Joyce and Dubois will have 10+ outings this year at that rate. Great activity."
Juggernaught Joyce will be back in action on TNT Sports in September in a must-win rematch with Zhilei Zhang.
The Olympian suffered a sixth-round TKO defeat to the Chinese clubber, who shut his right eye with brutal straight lefts.
Dubois, meanwhile, will challenge Oleksandr Usyk for the unified heavyweight titles in Poland next month.
