Jermell Charlo says Terence Crawford is “scared” of combating Errol Spence and didn’t need to face him as a result of he’s too “rooster.”
Crawford’s conduct in pulling out of the negotiations made it clear to the undisputed 154-lb champion Jermell Charlo that he was afraid of IBF, WBA & WBC welterweight champion Spence (28-0, 22 KOs).
It’s believed by many who Crawford (38-0, 29 KOs) was given the whole lot he wished within the negotiations with Spence, but he nonetheless didn’t signal and pulled out of the talks with out warning to combat David Avanesyan as a substitute on December tenth on BLK Prime PPV.
“Crawford, he’s frightened of Spence, and he don’t need to combat as a result of he’s rooster,” stated Jermell Charlo on Instagram about Terence Crawford being afraid of combating Errol Spence Jr, which is why he opted to tug out of the negotiations with him.
“He needs to attempt to get to the cash. Everyone over right here chasing the bag, I hear you. I’m chasing the bag for my household too. The Omaha native,” stated Jermell.
It’s exhausting to argue with Jermell about his notion that Crawford is simply too frightened of combating Spence for him to signal the contract for his or her combat.
Crawford appears to panic when he will get his bell rung in fights, and he’d get completed off by Spence if he acquired damage.
With Crawford’s weak profession resume as a professional, you bought to surprise if his promoter Bob Arum of Prime Rank was conscious of what would occur if he made the combat with Spence years in the past after the Omaha, Nebraska native moved as much as the 147-lb division in 2018.
Arum matched Crawford towards nothing however weak opposition at welterweight, and when Terence left Prime Rank, he continued that development by signing to combat David Avanesyan as a substitute of Spence.
“I actually don’t know,” stated Crawford to The Last Stand when requested if he sees himself combating Spence at 147 or 154. “I hope sooner somewhat than later at 147 so I can get all of the belts, once more.”
We’ve heard all of the speak about how Crawford is deserving of being #1 pound-for-pound, however while you take a look at his resume, the perfect identify is former featherweight world champion Yuriorkis Gamboa, who was combating two divisions above his greatest weight class when he fought him 2014.
Gamboa’s greatest years of his profession have been from 2009 to 2011. For many who don’t bear in mind, Gamboa had Crawford damage in that combat.
