Prior to the fight there were some concerns that Crawford struggled to make the weight. You wouldn’t have known from his performance mind you.
Crawford moving up to welterweight next would open up a whole host of even more intriguing fights.
One suspects this talented Omaha native will make the move to 147lbs at some point – as he’s virtually done everything he can at junior-welterweight.
