Horn To Crawford's Trainer: You Should Be Petrified of Rushton!

Jeff has to make this a brawl.

Nicknamed "Bomac", McIntyre has been Crawford's verbal attack dog for the entire lead-up to the bout and has repeatedly goaded Horn and his trainer, Glenn Rushton.

The Top Rank boss has a ruthless streak about him and nearly everything about Horn's WBO title defence against Terence Crawford on Sunday morning (AEST) has been manipulated to favour one outcome.

Arum said he was surprised that Horn was given second billing on the "Crawford-Horn" fight posters and nationwide advertising for the fight but that it was a decision made by the telecasters, ESPN, because Crawford was an American and better known in the United States.

McIntyre - a former professional boxer who was knocked out seven times in 21 fights - should have plenty to say.

Rushton might be 60 years old but knows how to handle himself, having won numerous national martial arts titles and spent years on the door fending off troublemakers at Brisbane pubs and clubs.

"I want to go as far as I possibly can in boxing and remain world champ until I retire".

‘Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind’ HBO Documentary - First Trailer Out
HBO today released the first trailer from the film, which makes its television premiere on July 16. Robin Williams was a complex comedian both onstage and off stage.

As Horn yesterday continued to say he was being made to feel like a "pawn" in a game set up for a Crawford victory, Arum assured The Courier-Mail: "Well, we don't have to engage in conspiracy theories".

"I remember watching him give self-defence demonstrations back in the day and the way he just took guys down so quickly - not even hurting them - but just taking them down to the ground. I was like, "wow that was fast".

GLENN Rushton may have been flattened by a dodgy lobster over the weekend but Jeff Horn is still backing his man if a battle erupts with Terence Crawford's "all noise" trainer in Las Vegas on Sunday.

Terence Crawford's camp has put up the shutters to Australian media, refusing all interview requests from travelling reporters ahead of his clash with Jeff Horn.

"He's a good fighter but no-one believes in what I can do". They watch me and they're like 'he looks average, we could easily beat him'.

"I know myself I can adjust to different people in the ring".
