World welterweight champion Terence Crawford is basking in the glory of a destructive victory over Amir Khan last Saturday night.

Crawford proved his worth as a bonafide pound for pound star with a one-sided beatdown of Khan over six-rounds.

‘Bud’ is now on the lookout for his next big challenge after calling out Errol Spence in the ring at Madison Square Garden.

Talking Spence, alongside an offer made to Danny Garcia, Crawford also discussed post-fight comments made by Khan.

The Briton stated Crawford was ‘tiring’ and that the contest ‘was just warming up’ when Virgil Hunter pulled him out of the bout after a low blow.

Speaking to Sirius XM’s At the Fights, Crawford was at a loss to fathom Khan’s words.

“There’s always gonna be an excuse. Me getting tired? That’s crazy to me!” – Crawford reacts to Khan’s post-fight comments about ‘Bud’ tiring during the fight. Also, Khan entering the fight with elbow problems.

DANNY GARCIA

“He’s not sitting around waiting on me. So I’m not gonna sit around waiting on him.” – Crawford discusses how Danny Garcia was offered a fight before Amir Khan was. Also what the future holds between the two.

ERROL SPENCE

“I don’t care what Errol Spence thinks. If anything, he needs to impress me.” – Crawford gives his take on Errol Spence following his victory to Amir Khan.

Promoter Bob Arum predicted a massive unification between Crawford and Spence would face a roadblock from counterpart Al Haymon.

Arum’s comments haven’t gone down well. With suggestions Spence would be talked out of dealing with the Top Rank boss by Haymon.

MANDATORY

Whatever happens, it seems unlikely Crawford will be pitched in against a big US name immediately after Khan.

The likes of Kell Brook or a WBO mandatory against Egidijus Kavaliauskas may be on the cards.

Spence in the summer is every fight fans dream. But as we all know, those kinds of dreams won’t be coming true anytime soon due to the ongoing situation with respective TV deals.

Furthermore, the ESPN, FOX/Showtime, DAZN split continues to damage the sport. The paying customer is left to ponder what could be in the future.
