Absolute champion about Crawford: “Never heard of his opponent”


The absolute champion of the first middleweight (up to 69.9 kg) Jermell Charlo (35-1-1, 19 KOs) claims that he did not see the last fight of one of the top boxers on the planet, Terence Crawford (39-0, 30 KOs), when he knocked out in the 6th round by David Avanesyan.

At the same time, e-Charlo did not fail to prick “Koresh” because his opponent was not one of those known in the USA.

“I didn’t get a chance to see him fight. I never heard of his opponent, I was just very focused on what I have ahead of me, ”Jermella conveys the words
boxing scene.

35-year-old Crawford had previously set himself the goal of fighting 32-year-old Charlo for the absolute of 69.9 kg until the end of his career. But beyond words, says the latter, things do not go with Terence.

Tszyu explained why it is easier for him than Charlo

“Dude, all I see is that he uses the names of PBC fighters [для пиара]. He doesn’t even try to fight anyone for real,” e-Charlo said at a recent press conference.

He probably means that there are no fights between Crawford and Errol Spence (28-0, 22 KOs), just as there is no potential fight against Keith Thurman (30-1, 22 KOs) mentioned.

On January 28, e-Charlo will face Tim Tszyu (21-0, 15 KOs). If he wins, you should probably expect Terence to comment in the spirit of “never heard of his opponent, who was that?”


Tszyu, by the way, believes that he will be more powerful than the 32-year-old “old man” Charlo.
