Crawford Says A Canelo Bout Is ‘The Biggest Fight In Boxing’

Terence Crawford says a fight with Canelo Alvarez is the biggest bout to be made in the sport. 

After the collapse of the Errol Spence Jr. rematch, Crawford has been left with a shortage of opponents. He could have faced Tim Tszyu for his WBO Junior Middleweight Belt to begin the journey of becoming undisputed at 154. But the Australian has signed a deal to face Keith Thurman

The only other opponent interesting Crawford is Alvarez since a victory makes him a three-weight undisputed champion. Reports indicate Canelo’s next two fights are Jermall Charlo and Crawford. Although neither fighter is a natural 168-pounder, Crawford saw no fight bigger than him against Alvarez. 

Boxing fans will disagree since David Benavidez has been the name mentioned as Canelo’s biggest threat. The Mexican Monster is the WBC Super Middleweight Interim Champion. After his knockout win over Demetrius Andrade, a fight against Canelo on Cinco De Mayo Weekend or Mexican Independence Day was mentioned. Benavidez is a 168-pounder, unlike Charlo or Crawford, making it a competitive fight. That was the fight fans wanted to see.
