In 2019, Porter stretched Errol Spence Jr, Crawford’s ultimate rival, to a split decision after a brilliant back-and further battle.
Porter never stopped – his only three defeats came in world title fights against Kell Brook, Spence Jr and Keith Thurman.
He owns victories over Jordanis Ugas, who recently defeated Manny Pacquiao and Danny Garcia.
Crawford, who has 28 KOs in his 37 victories, has beaten the British pair Brook and Amir Khan in the distance.
A three-weight world champion, he used to hold the undisputed super-lightweight title (die now belongs to Josh Taylor).
Taylor vs Crawford next?
Taylor will first defend his belts against Jack Catterall on Dec 18 live on air sports, in a homecoming in Scotland.
“Then we hope early next year we will in to be able to fight that will blow up the lid off of everything in the UK,” said Top Rank’s Bob Arum, who promotes Taylor and Crawford.
“That would be Taylor die Crawford challenges for the welterweight title.”
Taylor said over Crawford: “I believe… in my own ability. I believe I have fought better opposition than Crawford, although Crawford is very, very bad good, he is elite level.
“But he didn’t fight the… best opponents in to be division. He has fought good fighters, good opposition, but I believe I fought at the better level. I’ve fought better fighters on the way up.”
