The welterweight champion Terrence Crawford is having the time of his life after securing the biggest win of his career. Crawford will most likely fight Errol Spence Jr again for the rematch; his demand is quite high right now as many fighters are showing their interest in fighting him.
Interestingly, when Terrence Crawford was asked if he would fight Canelo, a big no came from his end due to the size disparity between the two. Apart from Spence, Crawford knows who he wants to fight next, and it will be interesting to see if that fight ever happens.
Perhaps if Canelo ever moved down from super middleweight to welterweight, we would see the mega fight between him and Terrence Crawford. Canelo will be fighting against Jermall Charlo on the 30th of September in Las Vegas, Nevada, and Crawford may make his return by December for the rematch against Errol Spence Jr.
Terrence Crawford talks about fighting Canelo
In a recent interview with TMZ Sports, Terrence Crawford explained why he wouldn't fight Canelo and revealed who he would fight next. "No, not at all," Crawford said, as quoted by tmz.com.
"Canelo really don't interest me because of the size factor." "That's my obligation in the contract and I gotta honor that if that's the next move for me and my career," Crawford on who he wants to fight next: "I would definitely choose Jermell Charlo.
It's a meaningful fight, It's more history. It's more on the table." Terrence Crawford is still undefeated and has more than just a few fights left in him, but who knows, he could retire anytime from now. Here's what he had to say about his retirement: "I've been doing this sport for a long time now and already stated and said that I'm gonna retire from boxing before I let boxing retire me."
