Terence Crawford said that Ricky Burns will get all the pressure when the boxers face each other for the WBO lightweight title on Saturday night in Glasgow, and pay per head sportsbooks can’t wait to see the action.
Pay per head sportsbooks found out that earlier in the week, Scotland’s Burns said that the pressure was off him, even though he was defending his title, as undefeated American Crawford is the favourite to win at the Scottish Exhibition Centre.
But Crawford, who was able to claim 16 of his 22 victories inside the distance, believes that Burns will collapse because he would be carrying the weight of Scotland, and pay per head sportsbooks also know how big the pressure would be on the fighter.
“Ricky has got the whole of Scotland depending on him,” said Crawford.
“In the States we’ve got lots of world champions, in Scotland there’s only one – Ricky Burns. The whole country is riding on Ricky because without him what is Scotland?
“The fans won’t like it, but I am fine, I don’t care, what can they do apart from yell and scream? I’ve fought the boos before and I’ll do it again on Saturday.
“I knew I would have to come over to Scotland to fight Ricky, I have no problem with that, it’s his fifth defence and he’s earned the right to fight wherever he wants, that’s cool with me.
“It’s definitely my time now, it’s been a bit slower than I wanted to get here but I am here now and I am ready to become a world champion, no doubt about it.”
Pay per head sportsbooks can see that the fight will top a great line-up of action in Glasgow, with Olympic champion Anthony Joshua taking on Hector Avila in his fifth fight in the professional ranks.
