A video has surfaced online of Terence Crawford’s trainer apparently refusing access to the Top Rank Gym to members of Australian media ahead of Crawford’s WBO welterweight title challenge against champion Jeff Horn from Australia.
The title in the video quotes Crawford’s trainer saying:
“We don’t talk to Aussies.”
Here’s how it happened (hat tip Gladrapchannel YouTube):
A strange situation given the fact the above Australian media members would have traveled literally across the world for the fight.
Crawford has stated in public that he does not enjoy doing media but this seems to be taking things to the extreme.
On the other hand from Crawford’s point of view, perhaps he was working on secret game plan techniques for the fight that he plans on using on Saturday and simply did not want to be seen on camera showing what he was working on.
The fight will take place this Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Crawford has been in focused mood all week and comes into the fight as strong favorite to dethrone Horn and capture his title.
