Terence Crawford isn’t willing to listen to any slander over his record from Canelo Alvarez, calling the Mexican fighter “delusional” after some recent comments.
The two have been involved in some back and forth with news that Bud is willing to move up three weight classes in order to face the Mexican star.
Crawford recently became the undisputed welterweight champion after a dominant win over Errol Spence Jr. Since then he’s made it clear he wants to fight Alvarez, which was initially dismissed by the Mexican.
However, Alvarez, who will defend his four super-middleweight belts against Jermell Charlo in September, has changed his mind is now open to a fight.
“Crawford is a great fighter,” Alvarez told TMZ Sports. “You never know in boxing, we’ll see in the future. Right now I’m 100 per cent focused on Jermell Charlo, but we’ll see in the future. If it makes sense, why not?”

Although Alvarez is open to fighting in the ring, he did take a shot at Crawford’s record.
“Like I always said, I respect Crawford,” he said. “He’s a very talented fighter, but he just won one big fight.
“If you see his record, he’s just beaten one good fighter. Other than that, I don’t think he’s beaten other great fighters.”
Those comments didn’t sit well with Crawford, who made his feelings known on social media.
“Here we go with the I haven’t fought nobody but Spence talk,” he posted.
“Lol y’all so delusional it’s crazy.”
Other career highlights for Crawford include being the first man to stop Shawn Porter, while he also won the undisputed super-lightweight world titles after defeating Julius Indongo in 2017.
