Crawford On The Canelo Fight At 168: ‘I Meant What I Said’

Terence Crawford has reaffirmed his desire to face Canelo Alvarez at super middleweight.

Bud has been targeting more history since his win over Errol Spence Jr. to become the first undisputed welterweight champion of the four belt era. And in the process of doing so, Crawford became undisputed in a second weight class.

However, a fight with Canelo would give him the chance to become undisputed for a third time, which would undoubtedly put him up there as one of the best of all time. But given that he would have to jump up three weight classes in order to make it happen, the perception was that Crawford may not have entirely been serious about it.

And yet, he doubled down on his beliefs to make it happen.

“Why is it ridiculous?” Crawford said on The 3 Knockdown Rule when asked about fighting Alvarez. I meant what I said. Listen, listen, that would be my opportunity to show everybody how great Terence Crawford really is. If Canelo win that fight (Charlo) and accept that fight and I come up to 168 and challenge him from undisputed at his weight, and that fight happen, then you know, man, I’mma just show everybody that skills pays the bills and I’ve got the skills to do it all in that ring,” Crawford

It is not surprising, then, that the boxing community were intrigued to see how such a fight would play out.
