On Saturday night, July 23, WBO junior welterweight champion Terence Crawford (28-0, 20 KO’s) faces off with WBC champion Viktor Postol (28-0, 12 KO’s) in a unification matchup on HBO pay per view.
Crawford is regarded as one of the rising stars in the sport, and I was curious for his take on another big fight on the horizon, the Sep. 10 Gennady Golovkin vs. Kell Brook clash.
Golovkin, the lineal middleweight champion of the world, will defend his crown vs. Brook, the sport’s reigning IBF welterweight titlist, in a fight he is highly-expected to win.
“Golovkin is too big for Brook,” Crawford stated when asked his opinion of the duel. “Brook is too small. [Brook] is a great fighter, but at his weight.”
I was curious for Crawford’s take on where he personally ranks in the pound-for-pound race and he didn’t hesitate with his response.
“I already rated myself; I’m number three,” Crawford stated.
“Of course,” Crawford concluded. “He only fought in one weight class.”
