WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford has his eyes on the biggest possible fight the current welterweight division can offer. And he’s one part of the deal.
The 34-year-old American called out the unified champion Errol Spence Jr. once again in a hope of starting a negotiating process at least. Crawford TKO’d Shawn Porter in the 10th round, as the champion looked like he can go on with another 6-7 rounds.
“He was at my fight?” said Crawford when told that Errol Spence Jr. was at his fight. “That point said he was never going to be at my fights and now he’s at my fights.
“You seen what I did compared to what I said,” said Crawford in comparing his 10th round knockout of Porter to Spence’s 12 round split decision victory over Shawn in September 2019.
“My thing is, who in the welterweight division is #1 now? You already know who I want. I’ve been calling him out all day. Maybe I’ll go up to 154. Maybe Spence will get his tail out of his butt and he’ll fight me.
“Styles make fights,” said Crawford when asked what does it mean that he was able to knockout Porter while Spence couldn’t. “I look at all of us. We’re all great, we’re all talented and we all got different styles,” said Crawford.
“He won and I won against Porter. I just look at it like, no matter how the end of the fight go, as long as you get the victory that’s all that matters.
“I love him. Shawn Porter is a real good friend of mine,” said Crawford when asked what he said to Porter after the fight.”I told him that I really didn’t want to fight him.
