Terence Crawford showed he still has many of his old wrestling skills in the bank when he hit a friend in his living room this week.
The WBO welterweight champion, who will face Kell Brook on Nov. 14, channeled his inner Khabib Nurmagomedov by forcing his buddy to tap out twice.
Khabib will defend his easy title against Justin Gaethje at UFC 254 this weekend, live on talkSPORT 2.
And Crawford himself was previously associated with a crossover fight in the octagon.
Back in January, promoter Bob Arum declared that TalkBox-Podcast: “Crawford has a wrestling background and would not be averse to fighting McGregor with MMA rules.
“That has occurred to us in the last few days and we will follow it [UFC president] Dana White. „
Arum later told reporters, “It’s not fair to the UFC and Conor McGregor to say, ‘Let him fight this fighter, this fighter, but only in boxing.’
“Terence Crawford will play McGregor in the Octagon and three months later in the boxing ring.
“The octagon would be first because I don’t want them to think we’re playing around.
“Terence Crawford is a really tough guy with a wrestling background.
“Crawford wouldn’t get lost in the octagon. I think he’s a world class wrestler so let’s see.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if Crawford put McGregor in an MMA fight.
“I think Crawford is a better wrestler than McGregor.”
