On Saturday in Omaha, Nebraska, undefeated WBO welterweight champion and pound-for-pound contender Terence”Bud” Crawford (33-0, 24 KO) will defend his title against undefeated challenger Jose Benavidez Jr (27-0, 18 KO).
If you only look at the documents, then you may assume this fight is defined to be a struggle between two of the greatest boxers from the 147-pound division. Oddsmakers don’t see it that way. Crawford is a huge favorite to win. Per youwager.eu, Crawford is the minus-3200 favorite. Regardless of his undefeated record, Benavidez is a plus+1200 underdog.
Though Benavidez’s has yet to get rid of a pro bout, he’s yet to face a fighter anywhere near Crawford’s degree in his career. Whether it’s to sell the struggle or to get the winner off his match, Benavidez is seemingly attempting to get into the winner’s head with some unsavory remarks about his loved ones and more. The movie below shows the 2 guys in a back-and-forth verbal exchange during among Benavidez’s workouts.
In the past, trash-talking Crawford has been demonstrated to be a fruitless mind game for its champion’s competitions. Hank Lundy tried this approach and it didn’t work out for him. Others have fallen into the same, self-imposed trap and failed just as miserably. From a pure talent standpoint, Benavidez has a few resources. He’s tall at 5’10.” His left hook is a hazardous punch and he can be proficient with the jab when he yells it consistently.
However, he’ll be in the ring with a furious, motivated winner whose toolbox runneth over with weapons of the fistic arts. On boxing ability and presents independently, Crawford’s capacity to switch stances, together with his gains in speed and power is a recipe for a one-sided rout.
