Canelo Alvarez has now confirmed that he could be tempted into a potential fight with Terence Crawford.

The American undisputed welterweight (147lbs) world champion’s name is on everybody’s lips following his win over Errol Spence last month.

In the aftermath of that victory, Crawford has made it clear that he only wants mega fights moving forwards as he is 35 years old (36 next month) and admittedly approaching the end of his career.

His primary target is undisputed super-welterweight (154lbs) world champion Jermell Charlo.

However, Charlo is already scheduled for his own legacy fight as he will jump up two weight classes to take on undisputed super-middleweight (168lbs) world champion Canelo on September 30.GERVONTA DAVIS

As a result, Crawford has said he would be willing to leap up an unprecedented three weight divisions and fight the winner – even if it’s Canelo.

The Mexican has now given a sceptical response, but ultimately confirmed he would be open to the clash.

Canelo told Manouk Akopyan: “Look, I respect Crawford, he’s a great fighter.

“Sometimes it’s a little crazy – people are talking about how I’m gonna face a ‘small fighter’ like Charlo, but he’s big.

“Now everybody’s talking about if I’m gonna face Crawford who fights at 147lbs, who is smaller than Charlo.
