A few months back, Crawford was getting aligned to face the all-time boxing legend, Manny Pacquiao. In fact, this contest lured the fans extensively and everyone was keen to see both the technicians go all out against each other. Unfortunately for the fans, this fight couldn’t reach fruition and it eventually fell through.
Moving further, ‘Pacman’ got lined up to face Crawford’s arch-rival, Errol Spence Jr. And with that, ‘Bud’ was left without an opponent. However, the latter’s promoter, Bob Arum, has definitely arrived at a fight date for one of his biggest boxers.

The last time ‘Bud’ made a ring appearance was back in November 2020 against Kell Brook. And as everyone expected, Crawford hammered the Brit to protect his undefeated boxing record.
Who should Terence Crawford ideally face next?
Crawford is a veteran in the sport and in the 147-pound division. Until now, he’s fairly proven his mettle by battling some of the best fighters on the roster. But in order to walk the legendary pathway, he’ll have to dig more.
That said, ‘Bud’ will get numerous opponents to touch gloves with for his next fight. Shawn Porter, Vergil Ortiz Jr. can be some of the prime talents who have the ability to give the 33-year-old a tough test.
It’ll be exciting to see who he gets aligned with for his October 23 bout.
