Terence Crawford confronts Jose Benavidez Jr., invites him to “step outside”

Crawford is really ‘bout that life.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

Terence Crawford is ‘really with the shits,’ just in case you didn’t know.

In this video the undefeated fighter is caught getting into a verbal altercation with Jose Benavidez Jr. before warning him to worry about his upcoming fight before he doesn’t make it to his next fight.

Then, as the pair get closer to one another, Crawford can be heard asking Benavidez to step outside with him while promising to smash him.

A couple of people attempt to intervene but Crawford wasn’t having much of it. Then, what’s not shown in this particular video, is that Crawford would begin making his way to the nearest exit while continuing to encourage Benavidez to follow him out back. Bendavidez doesn’t.

Crawford is currently targeted to make his 147lb debut against WBO titleholder Jeff Horn this April after becoming the undisputed junior welterweight champion last summer. And it’ll probably be a good idea for promoter Bob Arum to keep Crawford busy before he starts making his own fight arrangements in some more back alleys.
