Following Bud’s ninth-round-stoppage win over Errol Spence Jr, the new undisputed welterweight champion was declared the ‘WBO’ super champion.
And given that Jermell is also another possibility at 154, provided he moves back down after his fight with Alvarez, Atlas has backed Crawford to beat all of them.
“I don’t see any fighter. Okay, I’ll remove the weight for two seconds. I don’t see any fighter in that next weight class, and you mentioned [Jermell] Charlo as a possibility, is as good as him, close to being as good as him or capable of beating him, and I don’t know that weight will change that. That’s my answer,” Crawford

“He’s probably saying, ‘You’ haven’t seen all of it yet. Give one more challenge and let me open another door in my room,’ because that’s what the great ones think,” Crawford stated
