The sport of boxing has only been back for a couple of weeks. In March of this year, the entire sports world was completely shut down. Boxing promotions around the world were forced to cancel their upcoming bouts and no one really knew when these would resume.
Recently, several promoters have gained approval to start holding fight cards in Las Vegas. A few events have taken place and by all accounts, they’ve been successful. Now, some of the top promoters in the sport are beginning to schedule big fights.
Terence Crawford is widely considered to be one of the best boxers in the world today. He’s 36-0 as a professional and holds wins over several top welterweights. Crawford currently holds the WBO welterweight title and is waiting for the next opportunity to defend his belt.
Many believe that welterweight is the best and most competitive weight division in boxing. Obviously, everyone wants to see who Terence Crawford’s next fight will be against. One thing was clear. He’s due for a big-name opponent.
Fortunately, that appears to be the case. Crawford is signed with Top Rank, one of the biggest promotions in the sport. The CEO of Top Rank recently spoke to the media and claims Terence has some exciting possible opponents in his future.
