No Matter What Happens November 20, Terence Crawford Just Wants To Be Remembered As ‘One Of The Greatest’
Terence Crawford said he’s putting on a show on next Saturday on November 20.
On Friday, in a pre-fight virtual press conference, he said he plans to do so either by knocking out or going the distance with Shawn Porter. Either way, all that matters to him is the win.
Crawford (37-0, 28 KOs) has been undefeated so far in his 13-year career, overcoming some of boxing’s highly respected like Jeff Horn and Kell Brook. He told FIGHT SPORTS once it’s time to hang up the gloves, all he wants is one thing.
“I just want to be remembered as one of the greatest fighters that’s put on the gloves,” “Bud” Crawford said. “I want to be remembered for my skills and my ability to adapt to any opponent.”
The 34-year-old is putting his WBO world welterweight title on the line against “Showtime” Porter (31-3-1, 17 KOs).
For many fans, they consider Porter to be one of the elite welterweights still active and are labeling him as one of the champion’s toughest challenges yet.
But Crawford seemed to take the opinions with a grain of salt as he’s confident that he’ll be pulling out with a win Saturday night in Las Vegas, a venue whose tickets only have between 100 to 200 tickets left.
“When people look at the things I do in the ring, they can say, ‘Oh [he] can pick this up and pick that up. This is the reason why he’s one of the greats,’” Crawford added.
The two welterweights will meet in the ring at approximately 11:30 p.m. ET on November 20.
