Terence Crawford and Jose Benavidez Jr. do not like each other, and based on what we have seen in the past few days, their fight on Saturday night in Omaha could be exciting.
Today, during the weigh-in, Benavidez pushed Crawford, and the WBO welterweight champion responded by throwing a punch. Fortunately for everybody, the punch missed.
By the way, both fighters made weight. Crawford came in at 145.4 pounds, while Benavidez weighed in at 145 pounds even.
