Mike Tyson has heaped praise on Terence Crawford but highlighted one problem in particular with his career to date.
Crawford is 40-0 and coming off a huge win over Errol Spence Jr. in July of last year and he’s been linked to a huge clash with Canelo in recent times.
But ‘Iron’ Mike has explained that despite his success there is another box he needs to tick for the pound-for-pound star to reach the next level.
In an interview with DAZN he said: “Listen, this is the situation, this is the only argument against that [Crawford being an all-time-great], you know what makes people great fighters? Filling the arenas.
“Spence brought the people there. He [Crawford] is a master fighter but he has to get to the essence of fighting and that is excitement, bringing the people.
“He has got to keep beating people but he beats people too easily too. That could hurt him financially. I started making more money after Buster [Douglas] beat me, because people started saying ‘there is a possibility that he can get beat now’.”
