The potential fight has finally been order by the WBO for Terence Crawford the cerebral undefeated 3 division world champion, undisputed at 140 and currently WBO champion and arguably the pound 4 pound best in the world, to fight his mandatory Shawn Porter the freight train from akron ohio 2 time welterweight champion of the world. In the words of WWE The Rock Dwayne Johnson “FINALLY respect has come back to Bud Crawford’s Resume.”
Many been praying and hoping for when Crawford going to get in the ring with an elite welterweight. Crawford vs Spence hands down is the fight the fans are desperate to see at welterweight. Aside from Manny Pacquiao because he already has a cemented legacy. Many pundits have Crawford & Spence as 1a & 2a yet no one really has substantially separated themselves as “the man.” Shawn Porter has gotten in the ring with the others elites such as Keith Thurman, Errol Spence, which he loss yet many felt it could of gone either way. Porter also fought Danny Garcia, Yordenis Ugas which he won which also could have gone either way. Facts is Porter has been in there with the best in the division and have humbled those who fans thought was special like a Thurman and Spence and made them look ordinary.
Crawford has not faced no one in their prime and as good as the opponents Porter has faced. Believe it or not experience wise, Porter is more ready to face Crawford then vise versa. There isn’t one fighter you can name which had a easy time neutralizing Porter. Crawford is known to make timely adjustments and has every tool in the tool box to do so. The awkwardness and the unpredictability & iq of Crawford is what makes him Special. Yet again Porter specializes in taking everything you do good yet in smothering others he also smother his own work from time to time. but he never neglect in turning whats special into ordinary. Its inevitable that Porter is coming with the wrath of pressure.
Finally Bud Crawford will take is first true test in nearly 4 years in the division. All we could say “its about damn time.”
