ISLAMABAD: British boxer of Pakistan origin, Amir Khan rates Terrence Crawford highly stating that he is superior to every fighter he has faced as a professional, including Canelo Alvarez.

The former IBF/WBA light-welterweight champion Khan (34-5, 21 KOs) also believes that Crawford (36-0, 27 KOs)would beat Floyd Mayweather Jr. However, Khan does not say whether he thinks that Crawford would have beaten Mayweather in his prime.

Mayweather’s last fight against a real fighter was against shopworn Andre Berto, and that was five years ago. Since then, Mayweather fought against UFC fighter Conor McGregor in 2017, which was sanctioned as a professional match by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

“Look, when I was in the ring with him, after one or two rounds, I started to get my rhythm, but I have to say he’s the best fighter I’ve faced,” Khan was quoted as saying by boxing website

“I’ve faced the likes of Canelo.

“Every fighter I’ve lost previously is when I was up on points, and obviously got caught with a big shot and was knocked out or whatever. With Crawford, his timing was so on point.

“What a great fighter he was, a technician. His timing was amazing, and everything he had about the game plan that he had with the game plan for the fight.”

“He’s a brilliant fighter,” Khan continued about Crawford. “You cannot take that away from him. If he were to fight any welterweights, be it, Manny Pacquiao, being Errol Spence, and Floyd Mayweather, I think Crawford would beat a lot of them, maybe all of them.

“I think the only fighter that would be a good fight for him technically would be Mayweather, but I really think he’d beat Mayweather as well,” added Khan.
