Boxing: Will Jeff Horn Be Able To Hang Around with Terence Crawford?

We have got a really nice boxing weekend before us, but the largest fight is that the showdown between Terence”Bud” Crawford (32-0, 23 KOs) and Jeff”The Hornet” Horn (18-0-1, 12 KOs) on ESPN+ at 9:30 p.m. ET Saturday. The two face off that Horn won in July of 2017 from Manny Pacquiao.

Bud
By Malik Smith

Arguably the very best busy American fighter — he ranks third behind Gennady Golovkin and Vasiliy Lomachenko in The Ring’s pound-for-pound ranks — Crawford is looking for a fresh challenge by moving up to the welterweight division.

Crawford cleaned out the junior-welterweight ranks in dramatic fashion with a third-round knockout of Julius Indongo past summer to become the first undisputed winner to hold four straps since Jermain Taylor in 2005.

Crawford is the sort of man who likes to make an impression on the huge stage, and also his power makes him dangerous from any competitor. His past 10 bouts have been world title fights, and he’s 10-0 with seven stoppage wins. Five of his opponents over that span are former or current world champions, so he’s seen the best competition at every level.

Defensively, he is nearly impossible to hit recently. Crawford’s previous three opponents each landed fewer than 20% of their cries against him.
The Hornet
From Michael Leboff

Horn is a fascinating dude, and that’s also the best way to describe the judging in the largest win of the Aussie’s livelihood — a unanimous decision over Pacquiao 11 months ago.

In that fight, Horn was outclassed into the stage the ref came to him his corner and threatened to halt the fight if he did not show something soon. And still, the judges gave him the nod. I’m sure the fact that the struggle took place in Horn’s hometown of Brisbane, Australia, had nothing to do with the corrupt scorecards.

Anywho, while we all tend to concentrate on the unethical scoring, the 30-year-old did show some good things in that fight. Horn’s durability and chin was evident, and he’d come living in the subsequent rounds.

I came away from the Pacquiao battle impressed by Horn’s ability to hang in there, and that has opened up a betting opportunity.
