HILARIOUS: Terence Crawford Once Called Floyd Mayweather Over a $20 Conflict

January 9, 2021 3:27 pm

Terence Crawford is one of the brightest properties in the welterweight roster of boxing. The undefeated fighter is a nightmare for his opponents. But as rugged as he’s inside the ring, he’s equally witty and generous outside it. At the Errol Spence Jr. vs Danny Garcia fight, an amusing incident occurred with his nephew. The boxer got dragged into the same a bit later.

Romero Rolando, the WBA sliver lightweight champion borrowed $20 from Crawford’s nephew at the Spence vs Garcia fight in Texas last year. However, Rolando forgot or failed to return this amount.

In a video shared by Fight Hype, one of Rolando’s training partners narrated the whole incident to the fans.

As Rolando didn’t return the amount back to him, the nephew went up to his uncle Terence Crawford and detailed this incident.

The ‘Bud’ immediately told Rolando to return the money to his nephew. But Rolando refused and said, “You’re a millionaire, you can’t give him f**kin 20 bucks?” 

Saying this, Rolly gave his nephew $40 dollars; double what he asked for.

Romero Rolando is promoted by Floyd Mayweather‘s firm, Mayweather Promotions. So Terence Crawford abruptly rang up Mayweather and asked him to muscle his fighter and keep him in check.

Though this was a petty concern, Crawford still took a stand for his little nephew and shook up the best boxer for the same.

Is Terence Crawford one of the best of this era?

The ‘Bud’ has fought in multiple weight classes ranging from lightweight, super-lightweight to his current weight class, welterweight. The southpaw has steadily made his way to the top by beating every fighter he’s faced. He has an amazing track-record of 37-0.

Without a doubt, he is a fan favorite fighter who grabs millions of eyeballs in his fights.

In his last ring outing, Crawford won against Kell Brook with a thrilling T/KO and enhanced his resume.

He is expected to fight twice this year and move forward to establish himself as the best welterweight ever.

What do you make of the $20 dollar incident and Crawford’s involvement in helping his nephew?
