Crawford: Akoy no. 1 pound-for-pound
Si three-division word champion Terence Crawford dugay nang gikonsiderar nga usa sa top pound-for-pound fighters sa kalibutan sa nakalabay nga lima ka mga tuig.
Ang mythical rankings nausab sa bag-ohay lang katuigan nga nanglabay kon ikonsiderar ang pagsulod ni Canelo Alvarez sa tulo ka weight classes ingon man ang bag-ohay lang pagpulbos ni Naoya Inoue sa iyang mga kaaway sa lower weight divisions.
Si Errol Spence Jr. nipakita usab nga siya elite sa boksing pinaagi sa impresibong mga away sa maayo usab nga mga kaatbang.
Kon pangutan-on ang WBO welterweight champion nga si Crawford, way lalis kon kinsa ang nag-una sa listahan sa pound-for-pound.
“I actually know I’m No. 1. There are no ifs, ands or buts about it. I’ve been No. 1 for years in my eyes. When you ask any diehard boxing fan, they’ll say Terence Crawford is No. 1,” sulti ni Crawford ngadto nila ni Showtime Boxing podcast hosts Eric Raskin ug Kieran Mulvaney.
“Inoue has looked good in his fights. Canelo looked good in his fights, except this last one. We all look good in our fights. But for them not to give me my just due, it puts a little fire on the flame for this next fight. I need to prove and show the world that I’m really No. 1 when I say I’m No. 1.
“I wouldn’t say it’s a big ego. I would say it’s confidence. Everything that I have done thus far has shown that. Stopping everybody in the welterweight division. Never having a close fight. Dominating every opponent that I ever faced. I think that’s showing that I’m No. 1. I’m moving up weight divisions and conquering them one after another. I feel like that goes hand in hand with being No. 1 poundfor-pound fighter in the world. Not just fighting in one or two weight classes and getting a win. It’s dominating from one division to another division to another division.”
