by Allan Fox: Coach Bernie Davis feels that way. Keith ‘once’ Thurman It’s a great choice for Terence. Crawford in the next confrontation. If the rematch with Errol Spence Jr. doesn’t happen immediately.
Thurman stopped playing after he won a huge payout from Danny Garcia in 2017. Following that fight, Thurman off grid And rarely has anyone heard of it since then. Thurman’s motivation/ambition vanished after his fight with 40-year-old Danny and Manny Pacquiao.
The world of boxing and Showtime would love to see Crawford go up against young supermodel Jaron ‘Boots’ Ennis (31-0, 28 KO), who is set to take over as the next star. Wrestling
Ennis wanted 36-year-old Crawford’s scalp. to add to his collection to take his career to the next level. That would be a selfless move on Crawford’s part, just as Oscar De La Hoya fought Floyd Mayweather Jr. towards the end of his career to help Floyd become an avid PPV star.
instead of thinking about the next generation Crawford may face a motionless and incompetent Thurman. If there is no competition with Spence
It would be good for the sport if Crawford had to fight Boots. So he can take the torch from the people of Omaha. A Nebraska native and served as a welterweight for the next ten years.
Boots should take the baton from Crawford. Because that would instantly put him in the spotlight for PPV, but it looks like Bud and his coach Davis didn’t want that to happen.
Bernie views former WBA and WBC welterweight champion Thurman (30-1, 22 KOs) as a “good money fight” for Crawford (40-0, 31 KOs). )
‘One time’ option for Terence
Crawford is not good at fight marketing. Need someone who can work hard to promote the fight the way Thurman can.
Many boxing fans with short memories don’t remember Crawford’s past fights before facing Spence didn’t attract much attention. It was only when Crawford fought the famous Spence that his fight caused a sensation.
That’s why Crawford had to get an idle Thurman to help market his next fight. If there is no competition with Spence
Thurman hasn’t fought for a year and a half since he defeated former WBA 140-pound champion Mario Barrios in February 2022, and who knows what the old ‘One Time’ Thurman has left. during this career
Still, it would have been better for 36-year-old Crawford if Thurman had been shot to pieces. Because it will make Bud look better than he actually is.
It’s a situation similar to Crawford’s final fight with Spence that’s weightless, unusable, and completely crashed, which makes Bud look better than him with the deterioration of the three.
“I’m not going to say he’s leaving 147 behind because I know he can lift weights. But it’s like where we are now,” coach Bernie Davis told MillCity Boxing about Terence. Crawford who moved up to 154 .
“We should have been there. . If I were him [Crawford]And then I’m fighting Keith Thurman. If the Errol Spence rematch doesn’t happen, I’m going to go up against Keith Thurman. And if I’m not fighting Keith Thurman, I’m fighting Jermell Charlo,” Davis said.
Bernie shouldn’t get too much hope that Spence won’t fight Crawford next time. Because he will likely use a rematch clause against him in December.
Thurman = Crawford’s Toughest Battle
“[Jermell] come from loss [to Canelo]and we are fighting him It might take away some of the shine,” says Davis. “One way or another. He remains the undisputed champion at 154 pounds. [until he steps foot inside the ring with Canelo on September 30th and is automatically stripped of his WBO title]”
Of course, the shine goes off in the Charlo-Crawford fight. If Germell loses to Canelo Alvarez on September 30
Not only did Germell come back against Crawford in defeat, But he will no longer be the undisputed 154th champion as he will forfeit his WBO title when he faces Canelo.
Crawford could fight Tim Sue for the WBO Junior Middleweight Championship or bite the bullet and face Jaron ‘Boots’ Ennis.
A sweet dream that Crawford had Regarding his next fight against 168-year-old Canelo, there are almost no chances as the Mexican star refuses to open up to massive criticism from fans on two consecutive occasions, preferring to fight a man who weighs less than him Defending his undisputed title at the super middleweight division.
“Tanks, Boots, Keith Thurman,” Davis said of the possible options for Crawford.Bud is a ticket seller.; Bud is the highlight man. I think Keith Thurman can sell the fight.”
Bernie abandoned the part where Crawford was just a ticket seller in Omaha, Nebraska, but nowhere else. There is a difference, you know?
“He will not be a favourite. But I think he can sell the fight,” Bernie said of faded veteran Thurman. “Bud thought that would be his hardest fight. He often picks Keith Thurman as his toughest bout. than other men.”
Thurman wasn’t the toughest fight for the 147-year-old Crawford. Difficult to fight than Thurman
Tough Battle for Crawford:
– Jeron ‘Boots’ Ennis
– Emanti Stanionis
-Virgil Ortiz Jr.
– Royman Villa
– Jordenis Augustus
– Shahram Kiyazov
– Cody Crawley
“I think Keith Thurman’s feet.” He moved a lot. So it always causes mobility issues,” says Bernie. “I think that’s where it’s at. Shawn Porter was a bull. Errol Spence was a bulldozer. But when you talk about the forces that meet It’s easier than chasing someone. So I think that’s where it came from.
“I think Bud thought to himself, ‘Shawn Porter’s not going to put pressure on me, Errol Spence, his strength. He will come with this But I know what I will do when this moment comes. I told myself over and over again what I would do. i am practicing I believe in it.”
“Instead of when the guy is dancing at you. How are you doing? But again, I think Keith Thurman is a famous guy. He’s a good fighter. He doesn’t have the best style. But he was an accomplished fighter. He was cunning fighter And it’s a good fight. fighting for good money” Davies said
“There’s no shame in losing to someone like Canelo, who has only lost twice and got the Hall of Fame and has all the skills that Canelo Alvarez has.”
“boots [Ennis] is a young man who should have And it’s good for buds too. Because men like Boots will keep you motivated. make you hungry and defend your throne But know that you can’t be comfortable. Anyway, it’s good for Bud. I’m happy for him
“If Jermell Charlo hadn’t happened then I might have been promoted.” Fighting for that vacancy would make me an official World Champion. Germell was an accomplished fighter and advanced to veteran level.
“I hate that he’s going to fight Canelo. I feel that he will [Jermell] There is a good chance to defeat Tszyu and fight with us.
“Canelo was a good fight. But it’s a fight that he might lose more. He’s going to win the fight for sure. Tszyu is a more victorious bout,” said Bernie.
