Terence Crawford dominated the 140 pound division before moving up the weight to 147 pound division and most recently given   mandatory position for the Belt held by WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn (17-0-1, 11 KOs).

former undisputed junior welterweight world champion Terence Crawford (32-0) is now win a new environment and the WBO welterweight champion has vowed to show Crawford he isn't at 140 anymore. 

Jeff Horn defeated Manny Pacquiao, which still stands one of the major Upsets in Boxing this year to win the WBO title, before a crowd of 51,000 at the Suncorp Stadium Brisbane.

“At the moment with all the events and promotions I have to attend everything is flying by so fast it’s like the weeks have become days,” Horn said to Fox Sports. “It’s more than four months since I beat Manny Pacquiao at Suncorp but it feels like yesterday.

"I’m very keen to fight Terence Crawford. They’ve made him the top contender for my title and he has a great record but I know I can beat him like I beat Pacquiao. We’ll just have to see about the timing of the fight and when it happens.

"I want to have a holiday with my wife and the baby. We probably can’t go far for a while but maybe we’ll go down to O’Reilly’s (in the Gold Coast hinterland) again. It’s beautiful down there. I’m super excited about becoming a dad. It will be the highlight of my life and I want to enjoy some time with my wife and new baby before I start training for the next fight.”
