After Manny Pacquiao's shocking defeat to Aussie fighter Jeff Horn last week at Sun Corp in Brisbane Australia , possible collision against Terrence Crawford became more impossible according to Roach. Even if Pacquiao gets revenge to Horn on their rematch Roach is not even thinking the possibility of Manny Pacquiao - Crawford fight. There is a rematch clause in Pacquiao's contract with Jeff Horn which could force an immediate rematch bout with Horn.
If we fight Terrence Crawford right now, he's very athletic. He's very mobile. He's like young Manny Pacquiao. I don't think we want to fight guy that at this point Roach told Sports Illustrated.
Terrence "Bud" Crawford is the reigning WBO/WBC and The Ring Light Welterweight King. He has unblemished record of 31 wins with 22 knockouts. Crawford is set to face Unified WBA/IBF Light Welterweight champion Julius Indongo (22-0,11 knockouts) of Namibia on August 18 in Omaha Nebraska. The winner of this fight will grab all those titles and will be the undisputed champ in Jr Welterweight division.
