Terence Crawford, the WBO obligatory for Tim Tszyu’s 154-lb title, won’t enhance his placing for a mega-money retirement golden parachute payday against Canelo Alvarez by battling the winner of tonight’s clash in between Tszyu and Sebastian Fundora.

If Crawford’s objective is to get a considerable amount of sweet money in a fight against the super star indisputable incredibly middleweight champ Canelo Alvarez and after that ride off into the sundown, he’s not entering the ideal instructions to attain that vision by battling tonight’s winner in between WBO junior middleweight champ Tszyu (24-0, 17 KOs) and Fundora (20-1-1, 13 KOs).

As boxing professional Chris Algieri explains, Crawford need to go up to 160 to fight Chris Eubank Jr., which would put him one department far from Canelo at 168.

Of course, a much better concept would be for Crawford to fight IBF/WBO middleweight champ Janibek Alimkhanuly for his 2 belts. Unfortunately, Crawford’s not going to do that since it would be dangerous, and he would require to deal with his previous promoters at Top Rank.

The other option for Crawford would be to go directly as much as 168 and handle among these killers to in fact make a title shot against Canelo instead of anticipating a handout based upon his win over Errol Spence:

  • David Morrell Jr
  • Caleb Plant
  • David Benavidez
  • Christian Mbilli

Does he care as much about tradition or does he appreciate cash at this moment?” stated Algieri to the Probox television’s YouTube channel about what is for the 36-year-old Crawford’s objective is for the staying time he has in his 16-year profession.

“Does he [Crawford] go and get another world title against the winner of Tszyu-Fundora or does he fight Eubank at 160, which puts him one action better to a possible Canelo fight?

“He’s searching for huge, huge cash. I don’t believe the winner of this fight [Tszyu vs. Fundora] provides him the sort of dollar indications that would truly captivate Crawford enough to make that relocation, which opens a vacuum for Spence to action in.

“I would not be shocked if we saw Spence vs. the winner of Fundora against Tszyu. If Tszyu wins, is that huge adequate cash for Crawford? I don’t understand. If Fundora wins, definitely not,” stated Algieri.
