On Thursday afternoon, in Omahe, Ne., undefeated WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford (33-0, 24 KO’s) and former champion Jose Benavidez (27-0, 18 KO’s) and their respective teams came face to face ahead of their big showdown on Saturday night from the CHI Health Center on ESPN. Things got heated between the camps at Wednesday’s open media workout and emotions definitely carried over to the press conference.
