ANDTop Rank boss Bob Arum has said he wants to fix a super fight between Terence Crawford and Josh Taylor this year. Remember that Crawford parted ways with Top Rank last November after a historic win over Shawn Porter, after which he decided not to extend his contract with the promoter again.
The boxer was rumored to be angry at Arum for not offering him a fight against Errol Spence Jr. However, Arum is hopeful that Crawford will sign up again if he is offered a chance to face Josh Taylor.
“As for Terence Crawford, it is natural. We will come up with the best deal and he is used to dealing with us. I am sure he will find it acceptable,” Arum said.

“For example, if we make him fight Josh Taylor and Josh Taylor goes up (to 147), and we make it financially advantageous for Crawford and Taylor, Terence will accept,” Arum continued.
The veteran promoter, who has been in business since Muhammad Ali succeeded, agrees with Crawford if he chooses another promoter after becoming a free agent.
“Now if someone comes up with Spence’s fight and they’re offering him a lot of money, he’ll take that. There’s nothing wrong with that,” Arum continued. “People go a little crazy because in this age, there are long-term contracts and then, ‘Well, he left you and so on.’ No, he ended his contract. He has fulfilled his contract.”
