Terence Crawford Warns British Boxer For Insulting Girlfriend

By Keith Idec

Terence Crawford sent a not-so-subtle message to the suspended British boxer who insulted Crawford’s girlfriend.

Crawford issued a four-word Tweet on Thursday night directed at Tyan Booth. It read, “We do have passports.” The WBO welterweight champion added a winking emoji to his Tweet.

Crawford’s understandable reaction to Booth questioning his wife’s weight was well-received on Twitter, where countless fans and fellow boxers lambasted Booth for his crass comments.

A day earlier, Booth asked this tasteless question about Crawford’s wife, Esha, on Twitter: Should a world champion boxer have a fat girlfriend? Booth’s Tweet was sent out with a picture of Crawford, dressed in a suit, posed with his wife, who wore a dress in it.

Booth has become infamous for controversial comments made on his YouTube page and on Twitter. His Twitter account was suspended after he commented on Crawford’s girlfriend.

The 35-year-old Booth also is serving a British Boxing Board of Control suspension for his behavior outside of the ring.

Booth, of Nottingham, England, has gone 12-11-5, including two knockouts, during a pedestrian pro career that began in October 2005. The super middleweight hasn’t fought since he beat Marcus Morrison on points in their four-rounder 19 months ago in Derby, England.

The 31-year-old Crawford (34-0, 25 KOs) is preparing to head to Colorado Springs, Colorado, to start training camp for his April 20 fight against Amir Khan. The Omaha, Nebraska, native will defend his WBO welterweight title for the second time when he encounters England’s Khan (33-4, 20 KOs) in a 12-round, 147-pound title fight ESPN Pay-Per-View will air as a main event from Madison Square Garden in New York.
