However, Top Rank chose Bradley to face Pacquiao and Crawford was placed in an HBO bout at The Theater in Madison Square Garden in New York on Saturday, against the opponent Hank Lundy. Lundy has never fought anyone as talented as Crawford. However, Lundy is a pretty determined fighter and also a hard worker. Sadly, talent-wise, he is not even close to being in the same league as Crawford.
According to popular opinion, his best chance is if Crawford decides to overlook Lundy due to his disappointment about not facing Pacquiao. Sadly for Lundy, Crawford said, “I wasn’t disappointed in the least [I didn’t get the Pacquiao fight], even though I would have loved to have fought him.”
He further added, being a good sport, “Me and Bradley are good friends. He deserved the fight as much as anyone.” He said, “I’m not in the business of picking and choosing who I fight. That’s someone else’s job, not mine. I’m fighting Lundy and so I’ve gotten ready for him. I’m 100 percent focused on doing my job on Saturday.”
In the meantime, Dave Bautista isn’t really happy about Manny Pacquiao’s anti-gay comments either. The following statement from Dave, the actor and pro-wrestler who flirted with an MMA career as well, bears justice to that, “My opinion on that is he’s a f**ing idiot. My mom happens to be a lesbian so I don’t f**king take that s**t. I don’t think it’s funny.
“If anyone called my mother an animal I’d stick my foot in his ass.”
Stay tuned for more updates on Manny Pacquiao!
