Horn Is Confident He Can Beat Crawford

Jeff Horn is riding the biggest wave of his career into a major showdown against Terence Crawford on April 14th in Las Vegas.

Per Boxing Scene, Horn is confident that he will be able to stop the fighter many believe is the pound-for-pound best in boxing.

“Terence is a great fighter, great counter-fighter, he’s fast and powerful, but he hasn’t fought anyone like me before and I think I’ve got what it takes to win,” he said.

Dean Lonergan, who is Horn’s promoter, believes that this fight will be a tougher test for the former school teacher than his starmaking fight against Manny Pacquiao in July of 2017.

“This fight in Las Vegas is Jeff Horn’s debut on American soil and it’s without doubt his toughest fight to date,” Lonergan said. “If we talk about mountain climbing Manny Pacquiao was Mt Kilimanjaro, this guy is Mt Everest.”

When it comes to the concerns about Horn arriving to Las Vegas just under two weeks before the fight, Horn feels 10 days is more than enough time.

“A lot of people say that’s too short but I think I’ve got a lot of time to acclimatize and get ready,” he said.

Horn claims that if he pulls off the win against Crawford, he may be looking to wind down his career sooner rather than later.

“I’m world champion now and I need the world to take notice,” he said. “If I keep winning and keep having these big fights against these massive names in the sport I could retire in probably three or four fights.”
