Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank has listed the four fighters that he is thinking of for his standout talent Terence Crawford next up.
Terence Crawford recently became WBO welterweight world champion a whole host of new opportunities have now opened up for him.
Speaking to Michael Woods on the TalkBox Boxing Podcast, Arum said:
“There would be, Matthysse would be a possibility if the Pacquiao fight doesn’t happen or if the Pacquiao fight does happen next month and he beats Pacquiao, Matthysse would be a very good fight for Terence. He’s a guy with a good punch and so forth, it would be an interesting fight. Jose Benavidez Jr would be a very good fight. There’s a lot of animosity there. We have a guy fighting next month in I think it’s Orlando, Carlos Adamez the Dominican who’s a big knock out guy. He could be a possible opponent. So that’s the shortlist. There may be others. Amir Khan could be a possibility. I have to talk to him. I think he has a fight scheduled. But he’s okay, he’s a free agent if he fights in the United States.”
Some interesting names there for sure.
Out of those four Amir Khan would be by far the bigger name but whether or not the fight could be made remains to be seen.
