Terence Crawford is eyeing a showdown with Manny Pacquiao after his bout with Kell Brook.
Crawford is undefeated thus far in his pro boxing career. He has amassed a record of 36-0 with 27 knockouts along the way. He is regarded by many as the pound-for-pound best boxer in the world. Crawford is scheduled to defend the WBO Welterweight Title against Brook this Saturday night, November 14.
During the Relentless: Terence Crawford special, “Bud” revealed he wants to fight boxing legend Manny Pacquiao if he handles business against Brook (via BoxingScene.com).
“If I could fight all the fighters, you know, and then walk away, Pacquiao would be the number one. Spence, he’ll be right after that. Danny Garcia. Keith Thurman. And that’s it.”
Crawford went on to say that he believes he can retire at any time but bouts with Pacquiao and Errol Spence Jr. would put the cherry on top of a stellar career.
“I feel like I’m able to retire whenever I want, truthfully. I feel like I’ve done enough to be in the Hall of Fame right now, today. When I look at fighters that’s in the Hall of Fame, I say, ‘Man, I accomplished way more than them.’ So, I think in my head, ‘I know for a fact if I retire, I’m gonna be in the Hall of Fame.’ [Champion in] three different weight classes. Undisputed [in the junior welterweight division]. ‘Fighter of the Year.’ ESPY award-winner. Everything that I have accomplished in the sport of boxing. So, deep down in my heart, I know, you know, where I’m heading. I’m not ashamed if I walked away from the sport of boxing, because I’ll walk away with my head high.”
