HBO boxing video: Get to Know Terence Crawford

New, comments

Terence Crawford may be the next star in the lightweight division. Hear from the 26-year-old contender as he prepares to make his move at 135 pounds.

"I'm not the champ yet. I'm up-and-coming and I still got a lot to prove. It'll take a lot of hard work and belief. You gotta go in there and believe that you're gonna win every time you step in that ring. I believe in my skills and ability, and I just go in there and display my talent. Just pave the way for my legacy. I'm a great fighter. I'm fast, I punch hard, I can take a punch, I can move, I'm smart. I feel like I can do whatever I want in that ring. I'm gonna be champion. I'm gonna be here for a long time."
