WBO Welterweight Championship
Undisputed Junior Welterweight Honcho Terence “Bud” Crawford (32-0, 23Kos) has moved up to the Welterweight Division with one thing in mind and that’s to conquer the 147-pound Division and become a Champion once again.
First on the to do list is WBO Welterweight Titleholder Jeff Horn (18-0-1, 12Kos).
Jeff took the world by storm when he defeated 8 Division World Champion Manny Pacquiao for the WBO Belt. On that night Jeff showed the world that he’s got heart, determination and can definitely scrap with the best of them. Real Talk!
That being said, on Saturday, June 9, 2018, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vagas, Terence Crawford will be putting up his skills against Jeff Horn’s and attempting to snatch that WBO Belt from him.
We all know that styles make fights but on that night, I will be most intrigued to see just how Crawford’s game plan will do vs Horn’s roughhouse tactics. On one side, we have Crawford, a cerebral assassin, with many different tools to slay his opponent inside that squared circle. On the opposite side, we have Horn a naturally bigger, stronger, aggressive blue-collar type fighter with an exceptional chip on his shoulder.
The Boxing Community has Horn as a huge underdog in this bout, which in return as fueled him even more to prove the doubters wrong. The trash talking has been real heavy from both sides as of late. The heat is on and both are ready to outdo each other come fight night.
A lot of suspect questions will be answered on that night. Will Crawford become a 3 Division Champion and put the 147-pound Division on notice or will Horn show the world that he’s the real deal and finally earn his peers’ respect as a true Champion?
