TERENCE CRAWFORD OFFICIALLY MOVES UP TO 147, SLATED TO MEET JEFF HORN IN EARLY 2018

 

 

BY MIKE COPPINGER

Terence Crawford already cleaned out two divisions. Now he’s coming for a third.And if he’s successful, he will be the unquestioned pound-for-pound king.

That’s because the welterweight division is far and away the most talent laden in boxing, and Crawford made his move to 147 pounds official Thursday when the WBO installed him as the mandatory challenger to Jeff Horn, the organization’s champion.

Bob Arum told RingTV.com. that he plans to match Horn and Crawford in either March or April on ESPN, as long as the Australian is successful during his December title defense against Gary Corcoran, whom Horn is heavily favored to beat.

“Terence was having difficulty making 140 pound, he had a nutritionist in the last fight and it looked like he might be a little overweight, but he made it ebc he’s a diligent guy,” said Arum, who would prefer to close a deal for them to meet in March rather than April as long as the Australian comes out “in good physical shape” following the battle with Corcoran. “But it was a real struggle I think.”

Total mismatch. I'd rather these guys stay in their lane & fight opponents of their own class.
