WBO welterweight titleholder Jeff Horn is less than two weeks away from his showdown with top pound-for-pound contender Terence Crawford in Las Vegas, and the 30-year-old Aussie battler says he’s trained harder than ever for the fight. Horn who shocked the world by taking down the great Manny Pacquiao faces his biggest test at MGM Grand in Vegas on June 9.
All the trash talk – none of it from the quietly spoken former schoolteacher, most of it from Crawford’s corner – counts for nothing when he climbs through the ropes.
“They’re trying to make me feel nervous and to doubt myself, but I haven’t done that for a second,” Horn told Fox Sports
“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.”
But he’s the massive underdog against Crawford (32-0, 23 KO), a two-division champion coming up from 140 pounds to invade the crowded and star-studded welterweight division. Add in that he’ll be fighting in the U.S. for the first time as a professional, and he’ll have to be better than he’s ever been if he’s going to win this one.
