Terence Crawford Could Fight Again as Early as July

By Ryan Burton

Shortly after Terence Crawford's (20-0, 15KOs) victory over Colombian slugger Breidis Prescott, Top Rank CEO Bob Arum said that he would like to see the 25-year-old return in the summer. Crawford, a late replacement, moved up to junior welterweight to win a ten round unanimous decision over Prescott.

Crawford will likely move back down to the lightweight division where he campaigned most of his career. Arum mentioned tough Mexican Raymundo Beltran as a potential opponent for his next fight. Beltran would of course have to win his April fight in Austin, TX for the fight to be possible.

"We are going to target a summer return for Crawford.  He fought a hell of a fight. He could be back as early as July," Arum stated while also saying that Crawford is going to keep fighting top level competition. 

"The fighters will fight anybody but its up to the managers too. Ray Beltran is a possibility. It would be a hell of a fight. Crawford won't be stepping back down in competition. He's going to stay at the top level but the good thing is that with that competition comes the bigger purses."

As [I]early[/I] as July? That's four months away! This guy is a young prospect and already taking fights four months apart. He's only had 20 fights and been a pro for about four years! This is not the way to…
