Jeff Horn Has No Fear For Terence Crawford And No Issues Winning
WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn (18-0-1, 12 KOs) believes he will still Upsets odds again against his mandatory challenger Terence Crawford (32-0, 23 KOs), as he did against Manny Pacquiao few months ago .
Terence Crawford is regarded as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world and is booked as the favourite to win the Bout that will be taking place on June 9th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Horn also feels the Crawford team is trying to get on his head with their trash talk, which he believes isn’t possible.
“They’re trying to make me feel nervous and to doubt myself, but I haven’t done that for a second,” Horn tells Fox Sports.
“I’m not scared of this guy. You have to be confident in boxing, if you go in there thinking you’re going to lose then that’s exactly what will happen.”
Both teams have had issues with glove selection, with the horn team concerned, Crawford might want to use horsehair gloves.
“I’m not worried about the gloves, I haven’t sparred using the horse hair gloves because they’re too small for sparring. It’s all just distraction and tactics,” Horn said.
“I’ve worked harder for this fight than I ever have. I’ll be pushing hard, pressuring him throughout the fight. I’ll be thinking about my family, about my wife and daughter, going to the places that lift me when I need to dig deep.
“He has a devastating left hand, he can hurt you in the body or in the head. He’s able to switch-hit. But that’s all right, I have a few plans of my own. It won’t be like Brisbane, that’s for sure. There will be plenty of boos, but you can use that to your advantage as a fighter, too.”
