Jeff Horn: Terence Crawford Will Be Surprised How Strong I Am

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com was on hand at one of WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn's final training sessions at world class trainer Kevin Barry's private gym as he gets ready for his showdown against former two-division champion Terence Crawford (32-0) on Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Horn (18-0-1) is a big underdog in the fight but is very confident. He thinks that Crawford may be underestimating him and that he is in for a rude awakening.

"I think he will be surprised at how strong I am in there. A lot of guys I have sparred and fought in the past have all told me at the end of the fights that they thought they could beat me and thought they could do this and do that and they all said they didn't realize how strong I was in there," Horn told BoxingScene.com.

The biggest win of Horn's career was his controversial decision over Manny Pacquiao last July. Many observers felt Pacquiao did enough to get the victory but Horn is confident that a win over Crawford will change many of his detractor's minds.

"I guess if you win once they might call it a fluke but if you win twice they might be like wait a minute this guy might actually be pretty good," said Horn.

As for how well he can handle Crawford's power, Horn said that he plans on staying away from it.

"If you are moving in the way that they can't predict and you don't run into their punch then their punching power goes down a lot," Horn stated.

Crawford-Horn will broadcast live in the United States on the ESPN+ app along with the full undercard.
