I'm so hungry for this 147 division I can't wait to get in there again.

Bob Arum: Crawford will be better at 147 lbs
Arum has previously expressed his opinion that Crawford against the unbeaten IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr. (22-0, 19 KOs) is the biggest possible matchup in the welterweight division. Arum would have no qualms about making such a match and even suggested Crawford can perform even better now that he won’t struggle as much to make weight as a 147-pounder.
“I really believe that,” Arum said. “Trust me, he had to struggle. When he went from 135 to 140, it was easy. Then, as you get older, it’s tougher and tougher to shed those pounds. So I think he’ll be much stronger and certainly much happier at 147.”
