Ever since defeating Errol Spence Jr. in dominant fashion a couple of weeks ago, Terence “Bud” Crawford has called out just about every top fighter within 20 or so pounds of his weight class.

He has floated the possibility of fighting Canelo Alvarez at a catchweight. He even jawed with Jermell Charlo during the Spence fight. Now, it appears he has Gervonta “Tank” Davis squarely in his sights.

Speaking on the Earn Your Leisure podcast, Crawford responded to a comment calling Davis a “champion”

What champ? Who’s undisputed at 135lbs? Devin Haney’s got all the belts, he’s the champ, nobody else is the champ. Tank’s the bigger draw. There’s weight classes for a reason, tell him to come up here with the big boys, I’ll welcome him.

Crawford is technically right: Devin Haney has all of the lightweight titles at this moment in time.

Finding the right weight

In order to set up a fight between Crawford and Davis, “Tank” would have to move up substantially in weight. Crawford has already mentioned he would only stay at 147 pounds for a fight with Davis.
