TERENCE CRAWFORD has sounded a note of frustration at a shot at Manny Pacquiao failing to materialise.
Crawford is extremely talented, the world leading super-lightweight after defeating Viktor Postol. But Bob Arum, who promotes both, has indicated that such a fight would, if it happens, have to take place in the latter half of this year while Pacquiao considers going on a world tour and fighting beyond American shores.
Crawford denied he’d demanded seven million dollars to fight Pacquiao. On social media, Crawford stated, “Just to clear the air I ‘Terence Crawford’ never asked for seven million to fight Manny Pacquiao. There was no conversation of me even fighting him.”
In fact he contended that it was Pacquiao’s financial requirements that were the obstacle.
“Let alone money,” he continued thus, “so cut it with all the he say she say stuff going around and if I did s***, he asked for 20 million so who priced they self out?”
