Terence Crawford continues to talk up a fight against Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez.
Though there is a great weight discrepency between the two, the fantasy match-up has captivated the attention of fight fans because of Crawford's iconic win over career rival Errol Spence Jr. on July 29 in addition to a perception that Alvarez's best days are in the past due to a loss to Dmitry Bivol and an apparent inability to finish Gennadiy Golovkin and John Ryder.
Canelo, though, returns to the ring for a September 30 tussle in Las Vegas against Jermell Charlo in a bout that pits the undisputed super middleweight world champion against the undisputed super welterweight champion.
Super welterweight is a division Crawford may next compete in, having won all the welterweight titles, with no clubhouse leader from that division ready to challenge him.
Charlo, and indeed Canelo, are better options for Crawford, he said recently.
Boxing Scene spoke to Canelo about the campaign Crawford has launched in a bid to lure him into a bout agreement.
"It's possible. Why not? It's possible," said Canelo. "If it makes sense, I am down to do it. I don't care who is there. I am always able to fight everybody.”
He also said: "I respect Crawford. He's a great fighter. I always say that."
Crawford, perhaps responding to Canelo's latest comments, said on Twitter: "Canelo vs. Crawford is definitely by far the biggest fight in boxing."
Before any of these fights can take place, Spence must let Crawford know whether or not he'll activate the rematch clause that he's contractually obligated to.
Spence dropped a ninth round knockout loss to Crawford and has 30 days from the date of the first fight to trigger the rematch.
Both fighters said on the night that if they were to fight again later this year then it would make sense to contest the rematch at 154-pounds, rather than 147.
