In a statement to ‘The Breakfast Club,’ Crawford, who has been mentioned by the media as a prospective future opponent for both Canelo and Charlo, stated, “I got Canelo.”
He acknowledged that Jermell Charlo is a skillful and sizable opponent, but he emphasized Canelo’s strengths. Crawford believes that even though Charlo is bigger in size, Canelo will have the edge in terms of strength and power due to his higher weight class.
Crawford did acknowledge Charlo’s boxing skills, stating that Charlo has the ability to make the fight competitive. He highlighted the importance of Charlo using his jab and straight punches effectively while avoiding getting caught up in Canelo’s feints and techniques.
