Crawford open to Pacquiao bout

Terence Crawford is open to a bout with boxing legend Manny Pacquiao after he defeated Viktor Postol on Saturday night in Las Vegas to unify the WBO and WBC super lightweight titles, but will leave it up to his promoter and trainer to decide on his next opponent.

After knocking Postol down twice on the way to a comfortable victory, the 28-year-old Crawford is unbeaten after 29 fights with 20 knockouts. 

With speculation mounting that Pacquiao could make a comeback to the ring in November, after confirming his retirement in April, Crawford has become someone that boxing fans would love to see in a matchup with Pacman.

In an interview with Boxing Scene after Saturday's victory, Crawford said he would leave it up to his promoters to decide who he would fight next whether that included Pacquiao or not.

"If (Top Rank chief executive) Bob Arum wants that fight, and my coaches want that fight, that's something we'll talk about later," Crawford said.

"I let my coaches handle that. I am a fighter and I will fight anybody, I'm happy, and I'm about to go on vacation.

"We not worried about Manny Pacquiao right now," but added that if he fought Pacman it would be at the 140 pounds weight.
