Terence Crawford Is Dead Serious About Conor McGregor Fight, ‘Money Talks!’
“They put that money up, hell yeah I’ll go over there and fight him!”
That’s boxing superstar Terence Crawford — arguably the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world — telling TMZ Sports he would seriously consider an MMA match with Conor McGregor.
So, why would the undefeated welterweight champ cross over into Conor’s sport? Easy …
Turns out, Crawford comes from a family of wrestlers and has some legit wrestling experience himself. He’s very confident in his skills.
Plus, he doesn’t think Conor’s that big of a threat on the ground anyway!
“To keep it real, Conor’s not a real good wrestler. He may kick the sh*t out of you. You gotta worry about them kicks to the head and them elbows more than him grabbing you.”
“It’d be other things that you’d be having to worry about other than wrestling you.”
Of course, if Conor wanted to stand up and turn it into a fistfight, the undefeated Crawford believes it would be a slaughter.
There’s been talk about a possible Crawford vs. McGregor match for a while — but Terence says he’s seriously open to it.
“Conor is a big talent in the octagon and I’m a big talent in the boxing ring. Money talks. They put that money up, hell yeah I’ll go over there and fight him!”
In the meantime, Crawford has a big fight coming up on Saturday — taking on former champ Kell Brook in a WBO welterweight title bout.
Crawford is a huge favorite — but we spoke with Kell, and he ain’t about to roll over.
34-year-old Brook is 39 and 2 as a pro — with a win over Shawn Porter in 2014.
In fact, his only 2 losses were to some pretty great fighters — Gennady Golovkin and Errol Spence.
