HBO boxing video: Get to Know Terence Crawford

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.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

"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."
