WBO World Super-Lightweight Champion Terence Crawford is eager to push on and unify the division after several high profile potential fights fell through before the mouth-watering fight with Viktor Postol was finalised.
"I'm not worried if I am being avoided by anyone as long as I get to fight the best out there. In this business if you don't fight you don't eat,” explained Crawford.
Credit where credit’s due, Viktor Postol has stepped up to the plate to put his WBC World Title on the line as well as his unbeaten record in a clash of the titans at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
“The fans are smart enough to know a good fight. They are not about to settle for anything less. Why should they? They work hard for their money too. So if other fighters want to go hungry because they are looking for easy fights, that's their business. But that's not for me,” revealed the undefeated, pound for pound switch hitter.
It’s Crawford’s first PPV headlining show, one he is relishing and is eager to impress the paying fans.
“I love this sport too much and I owe a lot to the fans who pay to see me fight. They deserve to see the best fight the best, which is why I am fighting Postol. We are two undefeated champions risking our world titles and our undefeated records to fight each other to determine the best fighter in the division. It's the ultimate test.”
