Terence Crawford to return on Miguel Cotto card

Tom Pennington

Terence Crawford will return to HBO on Miguel Cotto's October 5 undercard. Who should the rising prospect face?

Lightweight prospect Terence Crawford will return to action on the October 5 HBO broadcast, which will be headlined by Miguel Cotto at a venue to be named in Florida, possibly Marlins Stadium in Miami or the Amway Center in Orlando.

Crawford (21-0, 16 KO) made his HBO debut on March 30, outpointing Breidis Prescott. He returned on June 15, stopping Alejandro Sanabria in six rounds. He hasn't stood out as any type of action star, but he's got obvious talent that promoters believe will make him a long-term contender and possibly champion at 135, 140, and maybe beyond.

The 25-year-old Crawford has no opponent, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him stay at about the same level he's been at against Prescott and Sanabria, and there's really nothing wrong with that. There's certainly no rule that says you have two fights at one level and immediately start hunting the big game, and Crawford is young enough, and Top Rank has high enough hopes for his future, that taking it at a leisurely pace may be the most probable course.

Or maybe he'll fight a titleholder or something, I don't know.

Who would you like to see Crawford face on October 5?
