Crawford to Pacquiao: 'Are you willing to fight me?'

MANILA, Philippines – Undefeated star Terence Crawford has decided there’s nothing left for him to do at super lightweight and thus moved to the heavier welterweight division.

Crawford’s migration to the 147-pound class puts him on a possible collision course with Manny Pacquiao.

Will we ever see a fight between Manny Pacquiao and Terence Crawford? Crawford said it's up to the Filipino icon.
In a report by Philboxing.com’s Dong Secuya, the 30-year-old fighter was asked if he is still open to a showdown with Pacquiao, who remains a major player in the welterweight division.

“That's not the question. The question is, is Pacquiao willing to fight me?” Crawford (32-0, with 23 KOs) fired back.

The Omaha, Nebraska-based boxer, who has recently unified the IBF, WBA, WBC and WBO, has long been considered as an opponent for the ageing Pacquiao.

But for various reasons, the fight never materialized, with Pacquiao’s longtime trainer Freddie Roach not keen on pitting his ward against the younger, more dangerous Crawford.
