Jeff Horn Claims No Fear Of Crawford
Even though he’s facing arguably the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world, Jeff Horn does not fear his June 9th opponent, Terence Crawford.
Horn will defend his WBO welterweight title against Crawford, in his first defense outside of his native Australia. Horn won the title from Manny Pacquiao in his native Brisbane, and hold Fox Sports that he has to be confident.
“I’m not scared of this guy. You have to be confident in boxing, if you go in there thinking you’re going to lose then that’s exactly what will happen,” Horn told Fox Sports.
“They’re trying to make me feel nervous and to doubt myself, but I haven’t done that for a second.”
While he is the champion, Crawford is considered the favorite walking into Las Vegas on June 9th, and concedes that Crawford has skills and a potential crowd advantage, but it doesn’t deter him.
“He (Crawford) has a devastating left hand, he can hurt you in the body or in the head. He’s able to switch-hit. But that’s all right, I have a few plans of my own.
“It won’t be like Brisbane, that’s for sure. There will be plenty of boos, but you can use that to your advantage as a fighter, too.”
