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.
