But irrespective of cracking a fight ‘The Truth’, Crawford recently shared a piece of positive news with his fans. Taking it to his Instagram, he wrote, “I’ll be back real soon” 

Earlier this year, ‘Bud’ was also in contention to face the Filippino boxing legend, Manny Pacquiao. However, a fight between these two failed to materialize and ‘Pacman’ got lined up to face Crawford’s rival, Errol Spence Jr.

The undefeated boxer in his above post didn’t mention about the dates pertaining to his return. But as per Dan Rafael, Crawford will return to the ring on October 23, and his fight will be broadcasted by ESPN. Also, there’s no opponent finalized for ‘Bud’. But a news piece regarding the same might get out soon.

Crawford last fought in November 2020 and since then, he’s been waiting to get his hands on a fierce opponent. With that, it’ll be interesting to see who he gets lined up with for his return.

Is Terence Crawford the best at the 147-pound landscape?

Crawford has fought countless opponents on the welterweight roster, and he has emerged victorious every time. Moreover, he has the ability to make spontaneous adjustments in a fight, and that’s what separates him from the rest.
