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 British Kellom Brook (39-3-0, 27 KO), admitted that he did not understand why the public was betting on the size of his opponent.
“When you talk about big guys, think of Jeff Horn. After the fight with me, he moved to 160 pounds. And he was great. [Хосе] Benavidez fought at 154 pounds and is tall.
Amir Khan … He raised middle weight for the fight with Canelo, and he’s a big guy too. And when people mark the size of my opponents, I don’t see anything special because I have been fighting them since I moved to welterweight, ”Crawford said.
