Terence Crawford names P4P top five list but leaves out Tyson Fury and puts bitter heavyweight rival ahead of Brit
TERENCE CRAWFORD has named his pound-for-pound boxing list – but Tyson Fury is nowhere to be seen.
The 38-0 welterweight champion failed to name Fury in the top five best boxers and named himself above Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez.
Crawford, 34, recently told EsNews: “Top five? – Man that’s hard, why you put me on the spot?”
Then Crawford went on to list his top five, “I’ve got me, I got Canelo, I’ve got Errol [Spence Jr], I got [Naoya] Inoue, [Oleksandr] Usyk.”
It means WBC heavyweight champion Fury, 34, not ranked with Ring Magazine, was left off the list but Usyk, 35, included.
Crawford then went on to explain that he does not believe he gets the credit he deserves in boxing but reckons he will after retirement.
Crawford said: “I feel like I’m never given the credit I rightfully deserve, but it’ll come when I retire
“As far as the rankings are I believe I am already number one.
Crawford continues to be linked to a mouthwatering match up with fellow unbeaten welterweight champ Errol Spence Jr.
And the pair look set to go to battle with the fight reportedly “agreed” for November 19.
The contracts are reportedly still yet to be signed as their respective lawyers “clean up” the deal.
Spence revealed that a clash with Crawford was what he was aiming for.
He said: “That’s the fight I feel like only makes sense because it would just be one belt left.
“That’s the next fight I’ll be campaigning for.”
