Potential clash between Crawford and Jose Benavidez Jr.
Rumors have it that Terence Crawford could face Jose Benavidez Jr on October 13th.
The possible contest might take place in Crawford’s hometown of Omaha, Nebraska. Crawford has proven to be a hometown attraction. This fight would be at 147 lbs.
Benavidez can crack. His last victory came in the very first around against the undefeated Frank Rojas by way of knock out. Of his 27 wins, 18 have come by way of knock out.
Benavidez is also well-schooled as a fighter. He earned his fame by sparring the great Manny Pacquiao at age 16 and rumors have it that he performed well. However, will that be enough to defeat one of the baddest men on the planet?
There is no arguing against Terence Crawford being one of the best pound for pound (P4P) fighters in the game today. Most P4P rankings place him at the number 1 spot, and rightfully so. Terence’s last contest was against the man who beat the man, Jeff Horn. It was a lopsided display as, like a surgeon, Crawford’s craft thoroughly dissected his opponent and ended the contest in the 9th round.
This will be a contest between two undefeated welterweights, albeit one more seasoned than the other. Even though I feel it is safe to bet your house on the obvious, be mindful that this is boxing and anything can happen.
