Terence Crawford Talks Danny Garcia

When it comes to WBO world welterweight champion Terence “Bud” Crawford (36-0, 27 KO’s), one of the major knocks against him is his apparent nonchalance toward making big fights at 147. The bout that the overwhelming majority want to see him in is against IBF and WBC world welterweight champion Errol “The Truth” Spence Jr (26-0, 21 KO’s).


Crawford himself wants this dust-up as well, but he has been heard to say that he would not cry if the fight is never made. Talk of this nature has driven a large portion of the boxing population crazy. Rather than exude this take-it-or-leave-it attitude, they would prefer that the laidback Nebraskan pursue the marquee fights with more gusto. Yet, that does not seem like a very likely outcome.

In fact, while discussing former welterweight champion Danny “Swift” Garcia (36-2, 21 KO’s) with AB Boxing News, Bud was once again consumed with a real heavy Hakuna-Matata type of energy. Garcia is strategically positioned as the #1 ranked fighter in the WBO welterweight rankings.

This could provide him a clear and free shot at Crawford’s belt if he chooses to go that route. And while Bud is not against the fight, he certainly is not pressed about it either.

“Well he got a lot of options. Like I said, if he choose to take the option to exercise his #1 rankings and become the mandatory and we shall fight, then that will make for a great fight.

“[On if Garcia went in another direction]…if it’s in the best interest of his career, if it suits him and his family, then so be it. I’m not knocking him or anything, I wish him the best.”
