In a hard-fought battle where both defenses dominated, the Kansas City Chiefs emerged victorious in an exhilarating overtime Super Bowl showdown led by Patrick Mahomes. Similar to their Super Bowl loss four years prior against the Chiefs, the San Francisco 49ers had a 10-point lead but couldn’t maintain it as Mahomes’ team gradually found a foothold in the game. Amidst all this, Terence Crawford, who was glued to his screen had changed sides.

He even joined in to repeat their popular slogan What they say bang bang 9er game!!! I can’t believe I said that” he added in another tweet.

The Superbowl was not the only match Crawford was looking forward to. Not too long ago, he kept himself updated on Teofimo Lopez’s fight against Jamaine Ortiz and used the chance to take a dig at him.

Crawford couldn’t hide his satisfaction as he took a jab at Teofimo Lopez, the WBO 140-pound titlist, following Lopez’s lackluster victory over Jamaine Ortiz in a 12-round bout that disappointed boxing fans. This fight echoed Lopez’s narrow win against Sandor Martin in December 2022, where Martin’s southpaw style caused problems for Lopez, leading to self-doubt captured in a viral hot mic moment.

After the fight, Crawford criticized Lopez on his X account, emphasizing Lopez’s focus on him rather than his opponents. Lopez, emotional after his victory, called out Crawford in a post-fight interview, proposing a catchweight bout. Crawford dismissed Lopez’s call-out as a promotional tactic. Crawford concluded by suggesting Lopez return to the drawing board, labeling him as a “chump” for fixating on him instead of his own fights.
