Terence Crawford has plenty of exciting opponents lined up for him. A rematch against Errol Spence Jr., a possible super-fight against Canelo Alvarez, and an opportunity to be a world champion in yet another division by potentially facing Jermell Charlo. In the past, ‘Bud,’ has been vocal about his interest to face ‘Saul,’ at a catch weight but Robert Garcia is not too keen on it.

According to him, a bout with ‘Saul,’ may not be a wise move. Moreover, he would like to see ‘Bud,’ face Jermell Charlo instead.

Charlo is a champion in only one weight class above the former undisputed welterweight champion Terence Crawford. Garcia thinks the Charlo-Crawford bout would be more fairly matched up. However, he thinks the interest in this potential fight might have abated after the Super-welterweight champion suffered a defeat against Canelo Alvarez.

While speaking to FightHubTV, he stated, “That would be the perfect fight. But Because of Charlo’s last performance, even Crawford said, I don’t even want to fight you. Just the way he fought against Canelo. Kind of does hurt a little. But he is a good sell fighter, it’s a big fight. I think that’s the fight Crawford should take and Charlo, he’s the champion so why wouldn’t he? That would be a great fight.”

The fight between Charlo and Crawford would definitely attract interest. But the legendary boxer does not shy from being brutal in his assessment of Charlo’s loss in his last fight.

Charlo lost his last bout via a unanimous decision against, ‘Saul,’ and also suffered a knockdown. Over a month later, Garcia revealed that he was disappointed by Charlo’s performance and did not shy away from making it evident. In the same interview, he stated, “He saw Canelo in front of him and probably felt a few punches, he decided to survive. I don’t blame him. But, we were not happy. I was a little disappointed.”
