ESPN columnist Eric Woodyard has no doubts that the leader of the pound-for-pound rating, American Terence Crawford (36-0-0, 27 KO) will try to stop the British ex-champion Kell Brook (39-2-0, 27 KO), which will take place this weekend in the United States.
The reason, according to Woodyard, is Crawford’s desire to declare himself and finally break through to big fights.
“If I were a betting guy, I would have bet Terence Crawford on the king of pound-for-pound. Not a single fight since 2016 has reached the decision of the judges. No doubt he will try make a statement against ex-champion Kell Brook. Now is a turning point in his career, and he needs big fights, “- said Woodyard.
