Terence Crawford speaks on what motivates him ahead of the pound for pound rated star’s latest outing in the boxing ring this weekend.
Terence Crawford boxes this Saturday at Madison Square Garden in New York when he takes on Felix Diaz in a world title fight.
Both Crawford’s WBC and WBO super-lightweight straps will be on the line this weekend and will mark his second fight in just under six months.
His last bout came back in December when he stopped John Molina Jr inside the distance in his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska.
Motivation has never been a problem for Crawford in his career thus far it’s safe to say.
The softly spoken fighter prefers to do his talking in the ring. Speaking on what drives him in boxing ahead of this weekend Crawford noted:
“I always said I wanted to be labelled as one of the best fighters that ever put on the gloves. I want to be in the Hall of Fame one day after my career, but all that is going to come after winning.”
Indeed, legacy and ambition are traits of all great fighters and so far with a record of 30-0-21KO Crawford has yet to be troubled in a pretty much flawless career thus far.
Provided he wins on Saturday night fans will be calling for him to be matched in more and more big fights.
