Horn’s Promoter Furious At Crawford-Khan Talk
Dean Lonergan continues to feel his fighter is getting the short end of the stick, leading up to Jeff Horn’s fight against Terence Crawford on June 9th.
The latest is the rumor that Top Rank approached Khan’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, for a possible Crawford-Khan fight.
Lonergan is offended that Top Rank, who has made several moves regarding the rescheduled June 9th clash without his advisement, are looking past the WBO Welterweight champion.
“Top Rank seem to forget that Crawford has a big fight on June 9. [Top Rank CEO] Bob Arum and his errant matchmakers are kidding themselves if they are looking past Jeff Horn, thinking Crawford is going to win that fight,” Lonergan told Sky Sports.
“Maybe the whole welterweight division should wait and see the outcome of Horn against Crawford as a superstar from Down Under is about to emerge. With Manny Pacquiao and Randall Bailey already on his resume, Terence Crawford is going to be a nice scalp to add to it.”
