Crawford: Ray Beltran Definitely Beat Ricky Burns

By Ryan Burton

Undefeated lightweight prospect Terence Crawford (21-0) knows that if he takes care of business against Andrey Klimov (16-0) on Saturday night he will get a title shot in the near future.

Crawford is ranked #1 by the WBO but insists that he isn't looking that far ahead. He said that he is 100% focused on the task at hand and knows that his title shot will vanish if he slips against the Russian Saturday night in Orlando, FL.

"I still want to fight for that title but right now I am focused on the fight that I have in front of me.  I can't look past anybody. I am focused on Saturday night," Crawford told BoxingScene.com.

Ricky Burns retained the WBO lightweight title on September 7th when he had a controversial draw against Ray Beltran. Most observers felt Beltran did enough to win the fight and Crawford agreed.

"Beltran definitely won the fight but Burns showed a lot of heart and guts and I give him a lot of credit for that.  At the end of the day thought he lost that fight and I think he knew it too," said Crawford.

I agree with Crawford. Blatant robbery.

[QUOTE=STAX ON DECK;13798724]yet burns ducked broner 2x lol[/QUOTE] Why, because he wouldn't fly to the States and let Al Haymon have his way with him? I don't think so. FOH, come back when Broner rematches his multiple controversial "wins".

I watched that fight today. Seriously disgusting. Beltran crushed him.

[QUOTE=The Weebler I;13798717]Broner's a bum, he couldn't beat De Leon, Quintana or Malignaggi without his Haymon judges. He should go back to robbing old ladies and slangin' crack. [COLOR="White"]See I can play this moronic game too.[/COLOR][/QUOTE] :Thinkingo yet burns ducked…
