Terence Crawford Sets His Sights On His Upcoming Battles
Terence Crawford (38-0, 29 KOs) is on course to become undisputed in the third weight class, but he’s not putting any limitations on himself.
After his long-term contract with Top Rank expired recently, the 34-year-old became a free agent.
As a result, he was one step closer to his pursuit of Errol Spence Jr. (27-0, 21 KOs), who is a holder of two titles and is set to face Yordenis Ugas (27-4, 12 KOs) on April 16 in a 147-pound title unification.
The welterweight champion was speaking to ESPN on Thursday in Puerto Rico, where he said that his priority remains to fight the winner of the welterweight championship.
However, if he doesn’t get his desired match, there is another matchup in his mind.
“I want to move up in the rankings and battle the winner of the Castano-Charlo fight,” Crawford stated.
Previously, the Omaha native was the undisputed champion at 135 and 140 pounds. Now, he also adds to his locker a title at 147. In arguably his finest performance to date, he beat Shawn Porter in stoppage time last November.
The American is yet to compete at 154 pounds but a battle against Castano or Charlo could also be on the cards.
