Via Chris Williams: Terence Crawford didn’t get the praise that some of his adoring fans felt he deserved his sixth-round knockout win over EBU champion David Avanesyan last Saturday night on the channel. pay per view BLK Prime.
Avanesyan was defeated in six rounds by Egidijus
Kavaliauskas in 2018 and was defeated by former prime minister Lamont Peterson in 2017.
While Avanesyan went into the match against Crawford on a six-fight streak, his victory was against a second-place opponent, not a world-class boxer.
Some fans wonder why Crawford’s gauntlet splits during the war, and they considered it suspicious. People then asked an explicit question as to why both of Crawford’s gloves were separated during the match.
Crawls of Crawford’s performance pointed out that Avanesyan hit him a lot and looked sluggish, fighting at a pace more commonly seen by heavyweights than 147-pound fighters.
You can see that Crawford has aged a lot over the last four years and is not the boxer he used to be.
Fans feel that if Crawford is going to leave the fight with Errol Spence, he should fight one of these killers:
- Jaron ‘Shoes’ Ennis
- Vergil Ortiz Jr.
- Regis . Program
- Jermell Charlo
- Tim Tszyu
- Sebastian Fundora
Crawford will never get the approval some say he deserves because he doesn’t resist high-powered opposition.
He didn’t deserve to be on the weight list because of the mediocre competition he faced, and he bailed out when given the chance to prove himself against Spence.

“We all expected Bud to win that match and we talked a lot about how he took down his last nine opponents. We’ve all talked about how great he is because he’s a pound king,” Akin Reyes told DAZN . boxing program about WBO welterweight champion Terence ‘Bud’ Crawford in his win over David Avanesyan last Saturday night in Omaha, Nebraska.
“We want to see that happen. He [Crawford] fighting an up-and-coming guy with a record of six knockouts who looks phenomenal against great undefeated prospects like Josh Kelly,” AKin said, praising the EBU 34 welterweight champion Avaneysan age.
“The guy said ‘I’m here to fight, I’m still motivated’ and Bud did what he did. [scoring a sixth round knockout over Avaneysan].
“Let me speak in front of the arena and almost 18,000 people have come for Terence Crawford. He brings them out in Omaha, and he never disappoints when it comes to excitement.
“I was expecting an overtime win, but I wasn’t expecting a go-to knockout, but Bud has proven that he’s the strongest puncher in the league,‘ Reyes said. “Can you argue that?”
“That’s a claim I’ve been saying for a long time,” Barak Bess said of Crawford, 35, as the toughest fighter in the tournament. “I also said the same thing. All I said this weekend was, ‘what do fans want?’
“I’m sick and tired of people trying to blame Bud for not having a fight,” Bess continued. “Now we know that’s not the case, and you really can’t blame the other fighters, and you can’t blame Errol Spence either.
“Obviously, it’s the politics behind the scenes, and what more do you want? Everyone that Bud enters the ring, he will take them down. This is ten consecutive fights.
“When GGG [Gennadiy Golovkin] was doing it, and no one thought he was fighting the top guys at a time when he had a 20-match streak by knockout, no one thought that when Jim Lampley praised him on HBO.
“Sometimes he fights 154-pound fighters, and he’s a 160-pound boxer, and people have given him the praise they feel he deserves. But for some reason, with Terence Crawford, they don’t praise him.
“He was a little guy himself, and he got on the team and stopped a guy [Manny] Pacquiao can’t stop [Jeff Horn]. Pacquiao couldn’t stop Jeff Horn. He’s huge, a big guy.
“Crawford just arrived [to 147], a small boy, and stopped him. He stopped those that others couldn’t, or better defeated them. He stopped Shawn Porter. No one in the world can do that.
“Porter was clearly injured on the second kill. His father gave up because he saw his son injured. This is a special fighter.
“Yes, we’d love to see him fight Spence, but don’t destroy his credibility just because he hasn’t fought the guy you want to see. Of course, I want to see him fight,” Bess said.
Reyes said: “I ignore all the critics who are complaining about this war. “Man [Avanesyan] had to feed his family and get the chance to fight a guy that would terrify a lot of other heavyweights there.
“When you care about the business and send a guy like that, that’s when you lose credibility. ‘Oh, this guy is this. This guy is like that.’
“Take a look at your history, see his last six games and see what he can do with his tactics. [Avanesyan] the final six opponents. It shows you how amazing Terence Crawford really is.
“Hopefully we get the fight we all want, but that doesn’t mean Terence has to kneel and obey whatever the other team and the other side want.
“It also has to make sense for him. He has the right to agree on a fight that is as meaningful to him and his family as it is to Spence. If Spence fights David Avanesyan, I’ll give him the same credit. I won’t shoot at it.
“If it’s the opponent in front of him. He did what he had to do with a live dog, and he proved to the world that he was still a top dog, okay?
“At some point, this match will happen again, and this knockout. Maybe we’ll put Terence on our show and we’ll talk a little bit more about that,” Reyes said.
