Terence Crawford Heading To 140-Pounds After Gamboa
By Ryan Burton
According to WBO lightweight champion Terrence Crawford (23-0, 16KOs), his fight Saturday night against Yuriorkis Gamboa will likely be his last fight in the division.
The 5'8" Crawford made his HBO debut last year when he moved up to 140 pounds and defeated Columbian slugger Breidis Prescott on short notice. Since that fight he has fought three times with all of those fights taking place at 135 pounds.
"This is probably my last fight at 135," said Crawford who looks forward to the challenge that the junior welterweight division presents.
"There are some good fighters out there but I am ready for it," Crawford told BoxingScene.com.

[[email protected];14700073]Everybody is so high on Crawford, because he beat 2 cans at 135. If Gamboas chin holds up, he will put a beating on Crawford![/QUOTE] If Gamboa's chin holds up??? wow you sound very sure footed there. Gamboa goes down…Comment by hamada44 on 06-26-2014
Crawford easily beats broner. Broner struggled with malignaggi. Crawford is even slicker than malignaggi. Crawford beats alot of guys at 140. His style is a nightmare hes probably the most akward fighter around.Comment by SlySlickSmooth on 06-26-2014
Crawford is quite possibly Broner's and Garcia's worst nightmare stylistically.Comment by [email protected] on 06-26-2014

Nah man. Go after Vazquez and win that lineal title. That would look great for his legacy. Be apart of history.Post a Comment/View More User Comments (14)
