Jermell Charlo says Terence Crawford is “scared” of preventing 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 all the things he wished within the negotiations with Spence, but he nonetheless didn’t signal and pulled out of the talks with out warning to battle David Avanesyan as a substitute on December tenth on BLK Prime PPV.
“Crawford, he’s fearful of Spence, and he don’t need to battle as a result of he’s rooster,” mentioned Jermell Charlo on Instagram about Terence Crawford being afraid of preventing Errol Spence Jr, which is why he opted to tug out of the negotiations with him.
“He desires 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,” mentioned Jermell.
It’s arduous to argue with Jermell about his notion that Crawford is just too fearful of preventing Spence for him to signal the contract for his or her battle.
Crawford appears to panic when he will get his bell rung in fights, and he’d get completed off by Spence if he bought damage.
With Crawford’s weak profession resume as a professional, you bought to marvel if his promoter Bob Arum of High Rank was conscious of what would occur if he made the battle 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 High Rank, he continued that development by signing to battle David Avanesyan as a substitute of Spence.
“I actually don’t know,” mentioned Crawford to The Final Stand when requested if he sees himself preventing Spence at 147 or 154. “I hope sooner moderately 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 once you take a look at his resume, the most effective title is former featherweight world champion Yuriorkis Gamboa, who was preventing two divisions above his finest weight class when he fought him 2014.
Gamboa’s finest years of his profession had been from 2009 to 2011. For many who don’t bear in mind, Gamboa had Crawford damage in that battle.
