This Saturday night, in Omaha, Ne., undefeated WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford will face off with former champion Jose Benavidez Jr. (27-0,, 18 KO’s) at the CHI Health Center. The two men obviously have some bad blood for one another, a fact that was further highlighted by today’s media workout that saw them come face to face and jaw at one another.

From Crawford’s view, the beef is real.

“It’s been real since day one, since the fight has been announced,” Crawford stated. “It ain’t been nothing but real. I’m just going to go out there and shut him up. That’s it. That’s all. Once he feels them punches going upside his head, I don’t even know if he’s going to want to stand there next to me.”

From the perspective of Benavidez, he believes this is his chance to really showcase his ability.

“It’s time to show the world what I can do,” said Benavidez. “I’ve been waiting for this my whole life. I am here. I am going to take over this city, and I am going to take his belt. I’m not scared.”
