2017 IN REVIEW- The Junior Welterweights
Pictured: Terence Crawford


Terence Crawford finished 2017 the same way he finished 2016 as the reigning lineal world junior welterweight king. The one difference is that he entered the new year knowing he will be abdicating the throne in the near future as he seeks another in the welterweight division.
