Undisputed super-welterweight champion, Jermell Charlo, has welcomed a fight with Terence Crawford after the pound-for-pound superstar called him out last month.
Crawford dominated and knocked out Errol Spence Jr in what was arguably the performance of the decade so far.
During the bout and in the aftermath, ‘Bud’ demanded a clash with Charlo, a stablemate of Spence, in a bid to move up to the 154lbs division and become a three-weight undisputed champion.
However, the WBO have since ruled that they will strip Charlo of his world title, when he steps into the ring to challenge Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez.
Regardless, ‘Iron Man’ told the Million Dollaz Worth Of Game podcast that he still wishes to take on Crawford.
“A fight like Terence Crawford obviously makes sense, I commend him, you went in there and beat the big fish, you beat the dog. So, whatever contract y’all agreed to, you have got to fight him again and get that out of the way.
Then maybe, since you said that you want to chop me down and walk up that field, I am a bad mother******, I don’t care what he says, I’ll get in there and dog his a** out. Little a** motherf***er.”
“He talked some sh** after his fight, he got on the top of the ring, pointing me and making all of this attention. I could run in there and talk some sh** back to you, but you are barely going to be able to hear me, it didn’t make any sense.”
“If he wants to come up the weight divisions and fight someone as big as me, as solid as me, as gifted and talented as I am, then he’s going to run into a problem.”
Crawford, 35, has since concluded that he aims to fight the winner of Canelo-Charlo at super-middleweight – an astonishing three-division jump if he pulls it off.
