Horn's Coach: Crawford's Trainer is Not 'Bomac' - He's 'Big Mac!'

Things are really heating up in the upcoming welterweight showdown between WBO world champion Jeff Horn and mandatory challenger Terence Crawford.

The contest is scheduled for June 9th, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

For weeks, the two boxers have been trading words back and forth - but now their two trainers are exchanging verbal jabs as well.

In a recent interview, Crawford's trainer, Brian McIntyre, expressed his desire to physically humble Glenn Rushton, who is the head trainer for Horn.

Rushton is confident that his boxer will not only win, but he will also shock the long odds by doing it by knockout.

And Rushton has no fear of a physical showdown with McIntyre.

He believes Crawford's head coach is too out of shape to do the business in a physical brawl.

“McIntyre’s nickname is ‘Bomac’ but I call him ‘Big Mac,’" Rushton told Fox Sports.

“How dare he challenge me. I’m 60 but having been involved in martial arts for more than four decades I fear no man. I spent years working on doors in Brisbane and I tackled many men much bigger and tougher than Brian McIntyre. He should grow up and act his age.

“Jeff Horn will put him and Terence Crawford in their place next week. Make no mistake we are going to America to knock Crawford out.’’

Horn (18-0-1, 12 KOs) captured the WBO welterweight crown in July 2017, when he upset the odds with a stunning twelve round unanimous decision win over eight division champion Manny Pacquiao at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia.

Crawford (32-0, 23 KOs) unified the entire junior welterweight division in 2017 - by joining the WBO, WBA, WBC, IBF titles with a knockout of Julius Indongo.

After that win, Crawford announced that he was moving up to the welterweight limit of 147. Because he was the world champion at 140 and moved up, the WBO made him the mandatory challenger at 147.

All this "trash talk" might be funny now but Horn must realize that Bud is going to literally punish him in the ring for all of this. This guy's team is setting him up for a career ruining beatdown and…
