After earning his third dominant victory of the year against John Molina, Terence Crawford is targeting the other belt holders in the Super-Lightweight division.
The slick pound-for-pound star defended his WBO and WBC World Titles on Saturday, stopping John Molina in the eighth round and he is now aiming to unify the weight class.
Speaking at the post-fight press conference, he said: “I know everybody looks at me as the Champion, and I’m number one with Ring Magazine, but at the same time you say ‘who’s the Champion at 140lbs?’”
Currently there are three men who hold a share of the Super-Lightweight crown; Crawford, Ricky Burns, who holds the WBA strap, and IBF Champion Julius Indongo.
“I just want people to say ‘Terence Crawford - he’s got all the belts’, and just want to put a stamp on it,” said the unbeaten 29-year-old.
“Some fighters want to fight, but they don’t want to take the purse. Some fighters are asking for too much. It’s a business - it’s got to make sense for me and Top Rank.”
Crawford has had a fantastic year, and the American hoped that an impressive showing at the weekend would earn him the Fighter of the Year accolade. From the start of the bout Molina was keen on a scrappy contest.
“They’re desperate to land this one big shot because you’re out-boxing them. He wanted me to stand and trade with him. That’s all he was doing, trying to lure me into having a slugfest with him,” he added.
