Canelo Alvarez Says He Respects Terence Crawford, But His Resume's Better!

Sure, Terence Crawford‘s the undisputed welterweight champ, but out of his 40 professional fights, the only legit threat was Errol Spence … so says Canelo Alvarez who tells TMZ Sports he respects the dude a great deal, but their resumes aren’t comparable!

Obviously, Crawford (40-0) has been the talk of boxing since his TKO win over Spence on July 29, with many calling him the face of boxing, and the world’s best pound-for-pound boxer.

Since then, Alvarez has been hounded with questions about whether he’d fight Crawford. We asked Canelo if he was tired of talking about Bud.

“No, look, like I always said, I respect Terence Crawford,” Alvarez told Babcock. “He’s a very talented fighter but he just won one big fight.”


“If you see his record, he just beat one good fighter in Errol Spence. Other than that, I don’t think he’s beaten other great fighters like Spence.”

Alvarez, on the other hand, has fought a bunch of beasts over his legendary career 59-2 career, including Floyd Mayweather, Miguel Cotto, and Gennady Golovkin. Up next is the undisputed super middleweight champ, Jermell Charlo, who he’s fighting on September 30 in Las Vegas.

“Jermell Charlo is a great fighter, he’s a talented fighter and he’s undisputed in his weight class,” Alvarez said. “It’s going to be a good fight so I’m happy to be in this kind of fight, in the big fights.”
