Amir Khan says Terence Crawford’s record is INSANELY deceiving — claiming his 34-0 record is littered with tomato cans … not REAL talented fighters.
In fact, Khan says if he fought the kind of bums Crawford has beaten, he’d be undefeated too!!
Yeah, that’s some hot fire from Khan who’s set to square off with Crawford April 20 at Madison Square Garden … a fight where Khan is widely seen as an overwhelming underdog.
Khan says the so-called experts have it all wrong — because he’s faced (and beaten) MUCH better fighters than Crawford.
“Look at my resume, look at the people I’ve beaten. My resume is a lot better than Terence Crawford’s. I’ve fought better opponents, beaten better opponents. Okay fine, he’s unbeaten, but I’m sure I would be unbeaten if I fought all the guys he did.”
Khan does have some impressive W’s on his resume — with victories over legit stars like Zab Judah, Marcos Maidana and Paulie Malignaggi.
Amir’s losses have mostly come by way of superstars like Canelo Alvarez and Danny Garcia.
“[Crawford has] not fought anyone like me,” Khan tells TMZ Sports … “This is his hardest fight on paper in his boxing professional career. That should say it all.”
As for Terence, he has this simple advice for gamblers — “If you wanna lose some money, bet on [Amir Khan].”
Terence Crawford Wants Errol Spence, Gotta Prove I’m The Best
Undefeated boxing superstar Terence Crawford has a wish … and that wish is also undefeated, and also a boxing superstar — Errol Spence, who Crawford says he wants, no, HAS to fight.
Spence just dispatched Mikey Garcia in a 12-round beatdown that made many believe Errol is the very best fighter in the world at 147 pounds.
Crawford — who’s gearing up to fight Amir Khan on April 20, says that ain’t so … and told us there’s only one way to prove he’s actually the guy and that’s going to make the fight with Spence.
Some boxing experts say Crawford vs. Spence would be the biggest fight in the sport.
“I want the fight. Let me just say that right now,” Crawford tells TMZ Sports … “Just to show the world I’m the best welterweight in the division.”
Both men want to lay claim to being the next big money fighter in boxing now that Floyd’s out to pasture, but to do that, they gotta go through each other … which means they gotta make a deal.
Some say Crawford is too small to handle Spence … and Crawford wants those people to SHUT THEIR LIPS … saying he’s got everything he needs to beat Errol.
“I feel confident matching up with anybody. I can box, I can bang, I can switch, I can punch, I’m not slow.”
Yeah, yeah, yeah. All that means is HE WANTS SMOKE. But, is Spence willing to be his chimney? We’re not sure if that made sense, but you know what we’re saying. Just make the fight guys.
