For a long time now, Crawford has stayed assertive on fighting such stout contenders. However, his ultimate wish is to fight his arch-nemesis, Errol Spence Jr. Unfortunately, both their teams couldn’t seal their talks to make this fight happen. As a result, ‘Bud’ is now left to face other names in the division and, for now, he’ll have to get past the rugged challenge presented by Shawn Porter.

Terence Crawford is undefeated in his professional stint as of now. That said, the champ will have to stay on his toes as Shawn Porter will test him in deep waters and will look to ensure that ‘Bud’ leaves with a 37-1 record instead of 38-0.
