Crawford Will KO Spence If Possible, Mayweather’s 50-0 Record Not A Priority

Terence Crawford is ready to knockout Errol Spence Jr. if the opportunity presents itself. 

Crawford has stopped all of his opponents since moving up to welterweight. This included stoppages against Shawn Porter and Kell Brook.

While that may have been the case, Crawford will be facing the much bigger Spence who is expected to pressure the WBO champion right from the start. 

That has resulted in many believing that Crawford’s best chance of a victory is to get a decision. However, Crawford has not ruled out a stoppage if he sees an opening.

This was most notably seen when Crawford stopped Porter, as soon as he realized that he was behind on the scorecards. 

“Like I always say, I never go in there looking for the knockout. But if it comes, it comes, that’s icing on the cake. My only plan is to become the undisputed welterweight champion of the world.

“That’s the only thing I am thinking about right now. All of the fighters that I have fought have prepared me for this moment,” Crawford said

In contrast, the last three fights for Spence have gone all the way to the 12th round even if they were victories.

Although that may suggest that a knockout for Spence is off the cards, the ‘Truth’ has shown that he is capable of standing toe-to-toe. 

But just as the knockout is not the most important thing, the same can be said for any other feat.

Crawford admitted that Floyd Mayweather’s 50-0 record is not something he is considering, even if he is 39-0.

And at the age of 35, Crawford’s ability to stay at the elite level will only become harder at the tail-end of his career.

“No, I never thought of 50-0. That’s Mayweather’s thing. That’s his record. He can have that. Not at all,” Crawford

With the fight just a month away, Crawford knows it is make or break for his legacy.
