Such comments rightly got the reaction of Crawford, who is a two-time undisputed champion. Bud beat Spence to become the first undisputed welterweight champion of the four-belt era in such a convincing fashion by stopping him in the ninth round. And in doing so, he became the best pound-for-pound fighter.
Although that may have been the case, Canelo appeared far from impressed with Bud’s accomplishments. He questioned the nature of his resume, as he picked out Spence as the only big-name fighter.
“He’s a very talented fighter, but he just won one big fight. If you see his record, he’s just beaten one good fighter. Other than that, I don’t think he’s beaten other great fighters,” Crawford
And yet, the narrative coming from Spence before their fight was very much the same. In the build-up, Spence dismissed Crawford’s record by stating he had ‘fought nobody.’ Those comments came back to haunt him during their fight. And given that Crawford is willing to face Canelo at 168, he has not been shy about Alvarez’s comments.
“Here we go with the I haven’t fought nobody but Spence talk. Lol y’all so delusional it’s crazy,” Crawford
Those comments will only go on to increase the calls for a Canelo-Crawford fight. And that may be the only way to test those claims.
