Terence Crawford reacts to Canelo Alvarez’s comment about his resume
By Allan Fox: Terence Crawford has come out of the woodwork to respond to Canelo Alvarez dismissing him as a potential opponent because he’s fought just one notable name, Errol Spence Jr, during his fifteen-year career.
Crawford took to social media today to respond, saying that it’s “delusional” and “Crazy” for Canelo to say he hasn’t “fought nobody” during his career.
However, if you look at Crawford’s resume, it’s void of elite-level opposition, apart from Spence, who looked physically & mentally like he wasn’t all there in their fight last July. Gaining a bunch of weight and being involved in a 100 mph car crash will do that to a person.
The King of boxing, Canelo (59-2-2, 39 KOs), didn’t make any suggestions about who Crawford should fight for him to get the kind of resume needed to be honored in his royal presence, but fighting these three killers in consecutive fights would undoubtedly put him in his good graces:
1. David Benavidez
2. Dmitry Bivol
3. David Morrell Jr.
If you want to earn something in life that has true meaning, you’ve got to sacrifice, but in the hard work. Crawford wants the Canelo, but it appears he has a sense of entitlement like he should be given special treatment.
Canelo would fight Crawford, but the Mexican star has an old-fashioned mentality where people need to earn their spot through hard work.
Crawford’s best career wins:
– Errol Spence Jr.
– Shawn Porter
– Kell Brook
– Egidijus Kavaliauskas
– Jeff Horn
– Amir Khan
– Viktor Postol
– Jose Benavidez
– Yuriorkis Gamboa
– Ricky Burns
It would appear that Crawford has a different value system than Canelo, believing he can take shortcuts without taking the risky fights needed.
Here we go with the I haven’t fought nobody but Spence talk. Lol y’all so delusional it’s crazy.🤣

“Like I always said, I respect Crawford. He’s a very talented fighter, but he just won one big fight. If you see his record, he’s just beaten one good fighter. Other than that, I don’t think he’s beaten other great fighters,” said Canelo Alvarez to TMZ Sports, discussing Terence Crawford’s empty resume.
Canelo is speaking facts here about Crawford having fought just “one good” fighter during his career.
If Crawford had taken some risks with his career by moving up in weight to 154, 160 & 168, he’d have a resume filled with big names, and Canelo wouldn’t have dismissed him.
Of course, if Crawford had fought the elite killers like Jermell Charlo, Gennadiy Golovkin, David Benavidez & David Morrell Jr., the chances are, he’d have a ton of losses, and Canelo still wouldn’t be giving him the time of day.
