The leadup to the Terence Crawford vs. Jose Benavidez Jr. fight has been pretty intriguing, with both sides exuding confidence and talking their share of trash. What we have come to find out about Crawford’s trainer, Brian “BoMac” McIntyre, is that he definitely has no problem standing up for his fighter.
This was on display on Thursday afternoon at the final Crawford vs. Benavidez press conference, as McIntyre continued to issue warnings to the 26-year old challenger. The teams of Crawford and Benavidez could be seen getting into a near scuffle on Wednesday at the open media workout and the tension carried over to Thursday’s presser.
