Terence Crawford feels he should have gotten credit from the fans for his wins over guys like Amir Khan, Jeff Horn, Jose Benavidez Jr, and Egidijus Kavaliauskas. Crawford thinks those guys would give the top PBC 147-pounders a tough time.
The fans are critical of Crawford (36-0, 27 KOs) for his weak resume, which was similar to previously undefeated Top Rank fighter Jose Benavidez Jr (27-1, 18 KOs).
Benavidez Jr was 27-0 at the time that he’d fought Crawford in 2018, and like him, he a lot lesser names on his resume. Top Rank had done an excellent job of building Benavidez’s resume, but he obviously wasn’t as good as his record.
When fans see Crawford’s resume filled with mainly lesser guys, they’re not impressed, and they don’t give him credit for being “great” as he would like to be called.
