Terence Crawford made his next world title bout against Dierry Jean official today during a press conference at Omaha’s CenturyLink Center in an event open to the public.
Dierry Jean Manager Camille Estephan: “I am happy to announce the rematch will be right back here in Omaha. Dierry asked for this fight and when we told him it would be in Omaha he said ‘all the better.’ Dierry has the style and power to beat Crawford. Dierry only wants to fight and beat the best.”
Dierry Jean Trainer Mike Moffa: “Omaha is a great city. It will be a honor for Dierry to take Crawford’s world title belt back to Canada where it really belongs”
Terence Crawford Trainer Brian McIntyre: “This is getting personal. All Dierry Jean will be getting is a good ass-whipping. He will be no factor against Terence.”
Terence Crawford: “Wow – he asked to fight me. That’s good. I like it. I will be 100% prepared -probably more than 100% because of the way Dierry’s team has been talking.”
Note: Dierry Jean lost his passport two days ago and was unable to board his flight. He will be issued a new passport this week.
