Crawford: No Pressure To Get KO, Crowd Don't Matter

by Rick Reeno

Undefeated Terence Crawford (22-0, 16KOs) is days away from the biggest fight of his career. This Saturday night, Crawford will challenge WBO lightweight champion Ricky Burns (36-2-1, 11KOs) before a packed crowd at the Scottish Exhibition Centre in Glasgow, Scotland.

A crowd of 10,000 is expected, with nearly all of them buying tickets in support of Burns.

The champion had a very questionable draw in his last fight, which took place against Raymundo Beltran at the same venue last September. He suffered a broken jaw in the second round and barely made it to the final bell.

Even with the location, the crowd, and possibly the officials stacked against him - Crawford is feeling no pressure to score a knockout.

"I just have to be me [to win]. He thinks he's going to go in there and impose his will, but he's going to be in for a rude awakening. I don't feel no pressure for a knockout. I never go in there looking for a knockout. In boxing you can't knock out everybody. If the knockout comes it comes. I'm not worried about the crowd or anything that any of them have to say, because none of them are getting in the ring with me," Crawford told BoxingScene.com.

Good way to think bro..Worry about the W,not about who is so happy to see a KO..Funny thing about people who worry about KO's,they usually abandon the fighter they root for time they lose..

[QUOTE=-Kev-;14271635]He said the same exact thing for the booing crowd in Florida in his last fight. He said doesn't care about the crowd booing and he won't fight like they ask him to. He should care. I mean he came…
