Horn’s Camp Calls Crawford “Princess” Due To Injury

Jeff Horn and his camp are telling Terence Crawford to “toughen up Princess,” after a hand injury postponed their scheduled April 14th title fight.

Crawford’s “slight hand injury” has Horn’s camp up in arms about the postponement of their WBO welterweight title fight. A fight that had no official venue, nor card announcement, or tickets on-sale with less than a month till fight night.

In a story from Boxing Scene, Glenn Rushton, Horn’s trainer has been leading the verbal attack on Crawford, as he claims the Nebraska native’s injury is one boxers suffer “almost every day.”

“He seems to me a bit soft. Toughen up princess,” Rushton said.

“Jeff had eight stitches (in forehead) three weeks out from his last fight, it was a bad injury and he missed 36 rounds of boxing but still went out and fought.”

“A slight hand injury? Put some cortisone into it and let’s get it on.”

Following the perception from Rushton that Crawford is “soft,” he feels it has given his fighter the mental edge.

“I think it does. We think now he is not as tough as we thought he was,” Rushton said.

“We will treat it as a psychological edge, use this as a positive and train even harder.”

Horn not only is frustrated by the postponement, but believes that Crawford is using it as an excuse to help him bulk up to 147 pounds, for an alleged new fight date of May 19th.

“He wants to put on those extra couple of kilos because that’s what he will need to be competitive against me,” Horn said.
