Terence Crawford: Manny Pacquiao ran from me and didn’t want to fight me | First Take Terence Crawford: Manny Pacquiao ran from me and didn’t want to fight me | First TakeThis guy might be the best switch hitter I’ve ever seen. What do you think makes him special is about him and they would be fair about Andre Ward, pretty good. You can switch around pretty good to win. You don’t have that great amateur background, both of them cometa, but he’s probably the best way to make some special as a fighter is instincts, is the most instinctual fight. I’Ve ever seen in my life he’s got an innate ability to just buy custom out of my months. Are you I think it was the best boxing guy ever, but that’s obviously my prejudiced, but he used to say the great ones make it up and say: do it they just created as they do, what kind of, like Jimi Hendrix on the guitar playing it upside Down you know, picture looking at a chessboard, see your moves to nobody else sees or Louis Armstrong, hitting notes that won’t even invented on the lawn. Yet this man does that he hits his own notes. He created, as he doesn’t he’s, got the greatest things. I’Ve ever seen my next question is apical, never wow. My next question is for the both of you when I think about him today I’ll ask you this question: who went cuz, I love Mega fights as much as I’m associated with just I love it. I don’t think it’s anything greater than a major major fight. Who would you love to see him against most and who would you love to go against most? Ideally, you know, I mean, I hope, spend a hundred percent. You know, God willing you will and mentally too, because an accident like that, where you see your life, pass in front of you and his life Pastor for them. When you flip a car going like that, you open mentally emotionally, he can come back from that. Not just physically, but I would like to see 100 % Spence against 100 % Crawford. I love to see that, because that would be that would resize strain against kill and stings he’s got some loyal to your ideal upon it. Whoever everybody else want me to fire. I’M taking them off, I don’t want hand pick them. I just fight them see whoever He-Man, because the Batman, that’s why that level of confidence is what is it when you talk about instincts, that’s usually a fighter who’s on top will survey the landscape and see if they, that guy you know, I’m going to have to Prove it again, anyone out there like that, you think you’re on your own level. What are is people out there like that, but my thing is once we fight and they don’t amount to the expectations that everybody put them on then it’s like. If I wasn’t all what I thought, it would be better quote recently, where you talked about. You were more, you proven more than the other welterweights like in the PVC right in various weight classes, but at a hundred seven pounds cuz we get to fight each other. We seen Spencer Porter, we seen anyone ever want all Spencer’s going to beat Porter up in a good fight. Didn’t happen that way like until you actually fight the guys. We don’t know, we just suspect what does it mean to you to not those fights of 47? That’S the thing you know what would I tell people at 47 yeah? You can say that I haven’t proven myself to the point where everybody, by what he’s the number one guy in the division but as a whole, my whole career be moving up two different weight classes and becoming world champion at 1:47. My first fight at 1:47. I feel like I know I proved them more in my career than any of those Fighters have none of those fires have moving up in weight and multiple championships. Two-Time lineal Champion Undisputed champion the year ESPN. That’S what I mean when I say I didn’t even more. In my career, because Max was talking to me about go on social media and announce that he would be coming out of retirement, do you think Mayweather would do you believe? Floyd is tremendous fighter in his time tremendous and he doesn’t need me to say that and a tremendous defensive fighter, but he’s a great manager, a real handicap, a great Matchmaker. He picks his spots really well, when sometimes people taking pic y, I feel like here and looking think about it. He fought algieri, okay, Ruslan provodnikov 10 Bradley, and that was that was okay, be sure to download the ESPN app and for live streaming.
