TERENCE “Bud” CRAWFORD
“Fighting at Madison Square Garden…headlining the event at the Mecca of Boxing is personally historic.
“I love to give back…to my community…to the sport of boxing…and on Saturday night I’m going to give something back to Lundy. I’m going to show him that punches hurt a lot more than words.
“Manny [Pacquiao] is the only fighter in the Top Rank stable who can take me to the next level. [Viktor] Postol is good but only real boxing fans know him.
“With Lundy, I need to look out for head butts, low blows and elbows. He’s going to get rough in this one. But once he gets careless, and he will, he’s going down.
“Lundy’s trash talk makes me laugh. But I don’t think he’ll laughing too much on Saturday night. Deep down in his soul he knows what he’s in for. He’ll respect me Saturday. Don’t blink. It might be a quick one.”
“Hammerin'” HANK LUNDY
“It’s going to be a war. I’m going to be the new champion of the world. It’s going to be a new life for my family and for me when I go home s world champion.
[Regarding press conference scuffle] “He can’t take the pressure. I’m in his head. I have him. I’m going to beat his ass and he is going to feel these hammers.
“Crawford is going to feel my pain, my struggle and all of Philadelphia. I’m going to crack his head like the Liberty Bell.
“Tell Crawford to bring some suspenders to The Garden on Saturday because when I take that belt off of him he’s going to need them to hold up his pants.”
