Terence Crawford Isn’t Ducking Felix Diaz

WBC/WBO light welterweight champion Terence Crawford finds it quite interesting that fans think he’s going to duck out of boxing Felix Diaz!

Read on and see what Terence Crawford must say on the subject matter…

Terence Crawford (30-0, 21 KOs) is amused that fans alleged that he’s afraid to move up to 147 to fight guys his own size. In fact, some fans believe that he is one of the top welterweights in the division after he rehydrates. But if he can make 140, why won’t he just move up in weight instead, but there is no reason for him to move up now.

Next month Crawford is set to fight Felix Diaz (19-1, 9 KOs) and some think he is afraid to fight. The Terence Crawford vs Felix Diaz is already set for a battle in the ring on May 20 at Madison Square Garden in New York. It will air on HBO Championship Boxing next month, so why all the speculation on Terence Crawford?

It’s being rumored that Crawford’s promoter Bob Arum looking around for an opponent for his May 20th fight. The fighters in mind are Adrian Granados, Amir Imam and Felix Diaz. Crawford choose Diaz and for the record he isn’t afraid to fight the Dominican Republic and 2008 Olympic Gold winner fighter. That is Terrence’s job to fight whoever Arum finds.
