Crawford is one of the greatest boxers of time. He owned multiple world championship titles and was considered one of the best boxers of this era. He is holding the WBO welterweight title since 2018, and no one was good enough to take it back from his arm.
Crawford defends every time some boxers try to earn it back. But there is now someone who will make a good contestant for Crawford and have a chance of shifting titles into someone else hand. And WBO thinks Shawn Porter is the perfect choice for this job.
Crawford was hoping for a good fight. Someone who is worthy to fight against him, someone big. Then at least WBO finds the right man for him.
WBO order Crawford and Porter promoters to settle a deal within 30 days and if they failed to come to a conclusion then WBO will fix a purse bid with a minimum of 200,000 dollars and a 60-40 split in Crawford’s favour. So, booyah, we will see the two greatest boxers fighting to win the welterweight title.
All the critics and fans are very excited about Crawford vs Porter’s fight. They all think the should take place a year ago. But anyway, now this is happening and that’s great news for all. Though someone was hoping that in the fight against Crawford we may see Josh Tylor. Cause the top rank boxer Bobs Arum previously said, “We hope early next year we will be able to do a fight that will blow the lid off of everything in the UK.
That would be Josh Taylor challenging Terence Crawford for the welterweight title.” Well, after that everyone was hoping these two boxers could settle a deal in the spring. Though Crawford will fight Porter now, we may still him fighting against Tylor in near future.
