Terence Crawford has opened the door to a potential fight with Canelo Alvarez in the future.

The 34-year-old is gearing up to fight Shawn Porter in Las Vegas on Saturday night but claimed he was keen to square off against Alvarez, who recently hinted he was keen to take some time off after beating Caleb Plant earlier this month.

The WBO Welterweight Champion - speaking to ESPN - revealed he was keen to take on the biggest challenges out there.

“I don’t believe Porter is the only welterweight out there that I can showcase my talent at a high level with,” he said.

“I believe Keith Thurman is a bigger fight, in my eyes. Keith Thurman is doing whatever he’s doing.”

Crawford was also keen to stress he did not believe he was given the credit he deserved and hinted a fight with Alvarez could go some way into changing that.

“Look at Floyd Mayweather, nobody gave Floyd any credit,” he said.

“They wanted Floyd to fight GGG at 160 [pounds]. I gotta fight Canelo [Alvarez] next.”
