Boxing News Readers’ Awards: Fighter of the Year Number 4

Terence Crawford

Terence-Crawford-vs-Yuriorkis-Gamboa-fukuda  |  Naoki Fukuda

TERENCE CRAWFORD makes it all look so easy, and the switch-hitting American enjoyed a break-out 2014.

The switch-hitter bewitched Ricky Burns in March to take the WBO lightweight belt in Glasgow but the best was yet to come. In June he handed Yuriorkis Gamboa his first defeat in June – beating him inside the distance – before majestically outclassing tough Raymundo Beltran in November.

A move to light-welter is on Crawford’s 2015 agenda.
