In Keyshawn Davis' estimation, Terence Crawford stands a good chance of defeating Canelo Alvarez in a potential showdown at 168 pounds, provided he can handle Canelo's power.

Crawford, with a record of 40-0 and 31 knockouts, is not a young fighter at 36, but he would be making a significant 21-pound leap to challenge the formidable Canelo, who boasts a record of 60-2-2 with 39 KOs, for the undisputed super middleweight crown.

However, Davis expresses concerns that if Crawford were to secure victory over Canelo, he might opt to retreat to the safety of the 147 or 154-pound divisions rather than face the formidable challenges of fighters like David Benavidez and David Morrell, who are both formidable forces in the 168-pound division.

These fighters, known for their power and skill, could pose a serious threat to Crawford's undefeated record, pushing him back to welterweight or junior middleweight. To demonstrate his commitment to taking on Canelo, Davis suggests that Crawford should first move up to 160 pounds and face Janibek Alimkhanuly, and then, if successful, step up to the 168-pound division to face Benavidez and/or Morrell.

Only after navigating these challenges with his unbeaten record intact would Crawford be ready to face the formidable Canelo. Davis acknowledges Canelo's exceptional boxing skills, particularly his use of feints and angles, but still believes that Crawford possesses the athleticism and heart necessary to potentially outbox Canelo.

In Davis's view, Crawford's ability to move with power and withstand it over the course of the fight would be crucial to his chances of victory. It's worth noting that Keyshawn Davis has a personal connection with Crawford, which may influence his prediction.

While Davis believes that Crawford can overcome Canelo, he doesn't rule out the possibility that Canelo's power could pose a significant challenge. Ultimately, whether Crawford can indeed defeat Canelo remains a question that boxing enthusiasts will eagerly await to see answered.
