After 2021 and a win over Shawn Porter, Terence Crawford (38-0-0) is looking for a new opponent. First of all, the WBO welterweight champion is working on finding a new promoter who will secure him a big match. After the win over Porter, Crawford broke up with Bob Arum and Top Rank and is currently free on the market.
His fight against Porter has reached a miserable figure of some 150,000 PPVs sold and Crawford cannot be satisfied. According to ESPN, but also according to Boxrec, Terence is the second fighter in the world on the "P4P" scale.
Only Canelo Alvarez is ahead of him, but Crawford despite everything, achieves very poor numbers and earnings. Errol Spence Jr. (27-0-0) is the boxer Crawford would most like to fight, and it would be a match that would still attract a lot of attention.
Both belong to the very top of world boxing. Spence is currently holding the WBC and IBF welterweight titles, and on April 16 (fourth month) he will fight Yordenis Ugas for the WBC belt. If Spence wins the match he enters as the favorite, he will hold three of the four relevant belts in his possession.
A match against Crawford would then also be a match to unite the welterweight titles.
While Crawford is waiting for the outcome of his situation and arranging a new match, Crawford decided to address the fans, focusing on the state of war in Ukraine.
'' What's up people? I am making this video to send love and support to friends in Ukraine. There is a bad situation there at the moment. I invite you all to start praying for them. Send them your love and support.
I have a few friends there. Mykola, the WBC president is one of those who goes through all of this. I know that many fighters like the Klitschko brothers, Lomachenko, Usyk and Viktor Postola, the guy I shared the ring with, are fighters for their country.
They need your support. Support them and let us pray for peace. I hope things get back to normal for those guys. Remember them in your prayers, '' said this great boxer. Oleksandr Usyk is one of the boxers who left Ukraine.
The undefeated heavyweight has left the country and begins preparations for a rematch against Anthony Joshua. Usyk decided that in this way he would have a good platform to send a strong message and would contribute more to his country than he contributed by being in the country.
It would be best if the war ended before Usyk's match and if the great boxer could fully dedicate himself to boxing and Joshua.
