"I want the other champions". "Terence would just get that odd shot, just that little bit more".

Another former world champion, Andre Ward, said it was a "bad look" for Horn, especially considering he is the man with the belt.

"The horsehair gloves definitely make it a more unsafe fight, " said Horn, who has undergone intense martial arts exercises to make his fists rock hard in readiness to use them.

Horn already has 2cm in height on Crawford and is expecting to be around 70kg by the time the bout begins.

Crawford, 30, was looking to become a three-weight world champion up against WBO welterweight title-holder Horn - who famously dethroned Manny Pacquiao to pick up the belt in July 2017.

If Horn hadn't made weight, he would've been stripped of his title and paid financial penalties to Crawford and the NSAC to move forward with their fight.

"I coud have kept him guessing, maybe I was a bit predictable".

The fight wrapped up a insane week with Horn almost getting stripped of his title on the scales on June 8. The Aussie rose before the count of 10 and once again put his heart and soul on the line, but Crawford went right back to business, and referee Robert Byrd wisely stepped in to stop the action at two minutes, 33 seconds.

He says Crawford, who has come up in weight after being world champ at 61kg and 63.5kg had grown stronger but retained his speed at welterweight. "Obviously the scales are a bit tricky - oh well, I've only got half a pound to lose". "He got hit harder by Pacquiao".

"There's a lot of things he's got to do and do right in this fight".

Though he never appeared frustrated, Horn couldn't find a rhythm against Crawford, who chuckled in the middle in the fourth, the same round he opened a small cut on Horn's left eyebrow.

"There's more chance of a cut, more chance of a knockdown but I'm the heavier puncher so Crawford should be very anxious".

"His future is unlimited". I want the big fights. "That to me is a great, great compliment because I always thought Leonard was the best, and this guy is equal or better than Ray".

Only a month ago the boxing world was convinced that Vasily Lomachenko was the best fighter in the world, the pound-for-pound king who would reign unrivaled as the best prizefighter in the world for years to come.

In the co-main event, Jose Pedraza defeated Antonio Moran by unanimous decision for a regional lightweight title. He'll fight for the first time Saturday night since he knocked out Namibia's Julius Indongo (22-2, 11 KOs) with a body shot in the third round of their super lightweight title unification fight August 19 at Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Nebraska.

LAS VEGAS, NV - JUNE 09: Jeff Horn and Terence Crawford battle in the fifth round.

In usual fashion, Terence "Bud" Crawford makes it look easy when he isn't supposed to. According to betting site Vegas Insider, Crawford is a -800 favorite, while Horn is a +550 underdog.
