“This is a real challenge.” Terence Crawford defends his fight with Avanesyan


WBO world welterweight champion (up to 66.7 kg) American Terence Crawford (38-0, 29 KOs) does not consider his upcoming fight against Russian David Avanesyan (29-3-1, 17 KOs) a mismatch, and criticism from on the part of the public connects with the disappointment of the failed megafight talks with Errol Spence.

Recall that the Crawford-Avanesyan fight will be the main event of the boxing evening in Omaha (USA) on December 10.

“Many people don’t know anything about him, but hardcore fans certainly know who he is,” Crawford said. “They just deliberately act like they don’t know him either because they’re disappointed that I didn’t work out with Errol Spence. That is why they are trying to cast a shadow on my upcoming duel. Well, like, “yes, he’s fighting with some kind of oaf.”

“But the truth is that my opponent is a real dude. He is a real challenge. And he is dangerous because he has everything to win. I mean, those guys who have nothing to lose are always the hardest to fight. They are full of passion, attitude and will to throw you off the throne, ”said the champion.

“And I don’t listen to all those who say that I’m fighting with sludge, some kind of taxi driver. Because they don’t know boxing,” Terence said. – In fact, it is no coincidence that many colleagues refused to fight him. Otherwise, he would have had a chance to fight for the title long ago. So I’ll get in the ring and do what I have to do. I am collected, I train as always with full gear. Because I never treat opponents with underestimation.

Last week it became known that the Crawford-Avanesyan fight is selling well, but problems still cannot be avoided.
