Crawford would fight Lomachenko for mega money

Terence Crawford would be prepared to drop three weights for a mega money clash against Vasyl Lomachenko, the world champion’s coach has indicated.

RING, WBC and WBO light welterweight title-holder Crawford faces John Molina Jr this weekend, yet it would be a huge surprise if the belt changed hands.

Crawford’s camp have struggled to find suitable opponents for the dominant 29-year-old, yet his promoter, Bob Arum, has previously mentioned the possibility of a match-up against two-division champion Lomachenko.

Almost that time!!!! #andstill #HBO #toprankboxing

The American, himself, has brushed off that suggestion due to the weight differences between the two fighters, yet coach Brian McIntyre indicated there is a window of opportunity for the encounter.

“If they put $10 million to make 137 [pounds] we’re going to make 137,” McIntyre said.

“We’re going to make 137. But I know it’s not going to happen.

“Terence would beat the (expletive) out of Lomachenko. He’s too damn small.”
