WBO welterweight champion (up to 66.7 kg) and number 3 of the “pound-for-pound” rating according to The Ring, American Terence Crawford (37-0-0, 28 KO), commenting in an interview with the media about the victory over the Briton Kellom Brook (39-3-0, 27 KO), compared him with his previous opponent, Lithuanian Egis Kavaliauskas (22-1-1, 18 KO).
According to Crawford, the public overestimated Brook ahead of the fight with him.
“I can’t call Brook the best. I can not. I think Kavalyauskas was better than him. And Benavides too. I think he is about the same level as Amir Khan. Jeff Horn was very uncomfortable. So yeah, I can’t call him the best I have ever met, ”said the fighter.
