  • HornCrawford- Cropped

Considered by many as boxing's best pound-for-pound fighter, Crawford relinquished the four major belts he held in the junior welterweight division to move up to a stacked welterweight division.

He entered the ring, dominated and walked away with a victory and a championship belt wrapped around his waist.

In Round 9 Crawford finished the job, winning his third world title.

"Well done, Terence Crawford".

Horn already has 2cm in height on Crawford and is expecting to be around 70kg by the time the bout begins. He became just the sixth fighter in boxing history to win titles at lightweight, junior welterweight and welterweight, joining Adrien Broner, Floyd Mayweather, Oscar De La Hoya, Pernell Whitaker and Barney Ross.

Horn said the scales provided for him by Crawford's promoters Top Rank were not calibrated the same as the official scales for the weigh in. (4), who is the IBF welterweight champion. We are ready for the fight of our life and Terence better be ready too because we mean business.

"He wants to make himself be a bit taller and try and look down on me", Horn said. "Al isn't going to send his fighters to ESPN if it doesn't make sense, and Bob isn't going to send me to Showtime if it doesn't make sense". I'm fine. I think they think I'm mentally weak. It's boxing, so anything can happen.

"I knew this was coming, I knew they had plenty of tricks in their book". "I'm bigger, I'm stronger, I'm in my prime and that's going to show on Saturday". Maybe, Vasiliy Lomachenko is still No. 1. They are tremendous but different. You know, y'all kept telling me how strong he was, but y'all didn't give me enough credit.

Jose Benavidez Jr. says he wants a shot at the Terence Crawford-Jeff Horn victor.

Horn certainly looked worse for wear when he eventually fronted the press more than an hour after the fight, having been sewn back together with 26 stitches from a plastic surgeon.

"I would do well with him", Crawford said of facing Spence.

"I believe I'd do well with any welterweight in the division". "We've been out of the ring for a long time and we're happy to be back".

The fight is significant for one other thing - it marks the first attempt to get boxing fans to buy ESPN's new $4.99 a month app so they can watch the bout from the MGM Grand Garden. He could have a noteworthy weight advantage once their fight starts Saturday night, but Crawford has declined to speculate about how much weight he thinks he'll add by rehydrating between Friday's weigh-in and the opening bell. "I wouldn't say I was getting bored at 140, but it was getting kind of tiresome, and now you got all these fighters at 147 that have names for themselves, and that makes for an exciting division". I felt like I just displayed my talent and my power. "There's a lot of great names in welterweight, and there's a lot of opportunities at welterweight". So you wouldn 't blame him for giving serious consideration to the pros and cons of taking the money, and his health, and living happily ever after, knowing that Australian sports fans will always have a soft spot for the story of the determined kid who got sick of being bullied at school and made a decision to learn to fight back and went all the way to the top of the world. Crawford's previous 10 opponents landed 7 per round.

Arum said Crawford is on his way to stardom and will stay active.
