Photos: Crawford, Benavidez - Erupts at The Heated Weigh-In

Following Friday's weigh-in, Terence "Bud" Crawford and Jose Benavidez Jr. had to be separated at the weigh-in. The trash talk led to Crawford (33-0, 24 KOs) being shoved, and then throwing a punch at the WBO welterweight world title challenger Benavidez (27-0, 18 KOs) - as they collide on Saturday at the CHI Health Center Omaha (ESPN and ESPN Deportes, 10:30 p.m. ET).

That was scripted as hell. Benavidez will get destroyed, this fight is nothing but a cherry pick.

Comment by Hatesrats on 10-13-2018

Benavidez will switch with Crawford (Stances) "Bud's" 147lbs chin will be tested tonight.

[QUOTE=Pusnuts;19188335]Crawford looking pretty good shape for someone coming up in weight[/QUOTE] This is his natural weight, where he's suppose to be at. He was one of those weight bullies. Look how wide and big his back is when he missed…
