Undefeated boxing champion Terence Crawford continues to win big fight’s in the “World’s Most Famous Arena” Madison Square Garden, adding another victory over the weekend.
The title of the best pound for pound boxer in the world has been up for debate since Floyd Mayweather announced his retirement again from boxing. The latest holder of that slogan has been critically acclaimed undefeated Welterweight champion Terence Crawford.
Crawford handled business once again over the weekend, keeping his undefeated streak alive with a ninth-round knockout of challenger Egidijus “Mean Machine” Kavaliauskas, Saturday night at Madison Square Garden. Crawford raised his record to 36-0, 27 KOs, and fourth straight victory in the historic building, starting from his TKO victory at the arena’s theater against Hank Lundy in 2016.
After the latest knock out, Empire Writes Back was on hand for the post-fight press conference as Crawford talked about his performance and looking forward to new challenges.
"“I thought I had to entertain ya’ll for a little bit. He’s a strong fighter, durable, and I thought I’d give the crowd something to cheer for,” Crawford said. “I wasn’t hurt at all. I got up and went straight to him. I wasn’t hurt by no means. I walked through everything he threw all night."
"“I’m not ducking anyone on the PBC side or Top Rank platform. I want to fight all the top guys.”"
The 32-year old from Omaha, Nebraska, has found a way to build excitement in New York City and become an exciting attraction at MSG. He is a consistent headliner that follows in the tradition of legendary boxers such as Felix “Tito” Trinidad and Miguel Cotto, who sparked interest in fights at the historic arena in past years.
The options for Crawford’s next fight will raise plenty of interest in any boxing promotion as the sport continues to push new stars seeking an opportunity to make considerable strides in their careers.
