Amir Khan: Crawford is Top P4P in Boxing, Rematch With Spence Will Be Same Result

Boxing Scene

According to former world champion Amir Khan, there is no doubt that Terence Crawford is the top pound-for-pound fighter in the world.

There is heavy debate regarding the top pound-for-pound fighter in the sport – with Crawford and four division champion Naoya Inoue as the two names being consistently pushed for the top position.

In July, Crawford became a two division undisputed champion with a one-sided stoppage of longtime welterweight rival Errol Spence.

Khan, who was stopped by Crawford in 2019, did not expect such a dominating performance.

“Crawford [is the top pound-for-pound], the way he beat Spence in a fight that nobody ever expected. I didn’t really think that he was going to do it that easily. The way he went in that ring and put on a great performance, punch perfect, he was a powerful fighter in there, he had more speed. He just looked physically stronger. He ticked all the boxes for me. And I think with that win against Spence, you have to say Crawford is pound-for-pound number one,” Khan told Radio Rahim of Seconds Out.   

Last Thursday, Spence exercised his contractual right to an immediate rematch.

There is a possibility of the rematch taking place at the junior middleweight limit of 154-pounds. Regardless of the weight, Khan is expecting to see the same outcome as we did in July.

“It’s gonna be the same result. I just feel like Spence didn’t even have a chance in the first fight and in the rematch it’s gonna happen again. I think Crawford is gonna do a job on him again. I like Spence, don’t get me wrong. For the Olympics he trained in my academy in Bolton. But the thing is, Crawford is the better fighter,” Khan said.
