Bob Arum, promoter of the WBO welterweight champion (up to 66.7 kg), American Terence Crawford (37-0-0, 28 KO), shared his plans for organizing the next fight of his ward.
According to Arum, their team is aiming for a unification bout with WBA super champion Filipino Manny Pacquiao (62-7-2, 39 KO), which, according to estimates, will take place in the Middle East in the spring.
“The money was there, and it was agreed,” the promoter told ESPN. – This fight was supposed to take place in the Middle East, but their health minister refused to guarantee the availability of spectators. And he was right.
They already called us and told us that if Terence succeeds, they are ready to re-negotiate. We intend to do this in the spring, before Ramadan. “
