WITH his dominant win over Dierry Jean on October 24, Terence Crawford continued his meteoric rise up the mythical pound-for-pound rankings. Attention has immediately turned to who the unbeaten Omaha native should fight next – many have named Manny Pacquiao as his best option.
We’ve listed five men we’d like to see ‘Bud’ mix it up with next. Let us know what you think.
5. Amir Imam
The flashy 24-year-old has gone fairly under the radar outside of devoted boxing circles but is one of the hottest talents in the super-lightweight division. Unbeaten in 18 (15 inside the distance) the New Yorker is ranked highly by several governing bodies and while admittedly green, has bags of potential and could just rise to the occasion against Crawford. However, as an Al Haymon fighter, Imam may not be able to secure a clash with the Top Rank-promoted Crawford.
