Trainer: Spence an easier fight for Crawford than Thurman

Brian McIntyre sounds off on what challenges he thinks are out there for his fighter, Terence Crawford.

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

In this video interview with FightHype, Terence Crawford’s trainer Brian McIntyre fields questions on the landscape for his fighter at welterweight and where the biggest challenges await.

McIntyre on Errol Spence:

“Fuck Errol. We gon’ fuck him up.”

On Keith Thurman:

“We gon’ fuck him up, too!”

On which is the easier fight:

“Danny Garcia.”

On which is the easier fight between Spence and Thurman:

“To be honest with you, man. I would probably pick Errol Spence...[Spence] is the easier fight. See if I keep elaborating on this question [I’m gonna give too much away].”

On his thoughts on a match-up between Spence and Thurman:

“Errol Spence is gonna have a lil’ problem with Keith Thurman, until he get to him.”

Clearly McIntyre isn’t a man of many words, but he has no shortage on emphasis in his opinions anyway. McIntyre’s first assignment with Crawford will be coming against Jeff Horn, who the team also expects to ‘fuck up.’
