The world welterweight champion of the World Boxing Organization (WBO), Terence "Bud" Crawford (38-0, 29 KOs), is hoping to face the winner of next month's WBC, IBF, WBA unification showdown between Errol Spence and Yordenis Ugas.
Crawford recent traveled over to Puerto Rico, as he went to the gym of the Monterrey Boxing Academy in Bayamón - to sit at a press conference with World Boxing Organization (WBO) President Francisco "Paco" Valcárcel.
“I have been the WBO champion for a long time and they have always treated me with great respect. They always open their arms to me and have shown me great hospitality. So, I'm just having fun right now,” Crawford told Antolin Rios.
The southpaw from Omaha, Nebraska, has been a champion at 135, 140 and currently 147 pounds.
He's been out of the ring since last November, when he stopped former champion Shawn Porter in ten rounds.
Crawford would later part ways with longtime promoter Top Rank - with the two sides currently engaged in a legal battle.
His future plans are unknown - but the Spence-Ugas winner is at the top of Crawford's list.
However, if Crawford is unable to become undisputed at the welterweight limit of 147 - then he will travel up to pursue the undisputed crown in the junior middleweight division.
“It's going to be a good fight. I give Spence a little bit of an edge, but, you know, that doesn't take any credit from Yordenis. I think he is a tremendous talent. I think he has what it takes to derail Spence. But who knows how that fight will go? I see a little advantage to Spence, but it will be a great fight,” Crawford said.
“Hopefully I can face the winner. If not, I want to move up and fight the winner of (Brian) Castano and (Jermell) Charlo."
