Terence Crawford, reigning WBC, WBA, and WBO welterweight champion, threw a verbal hook at WBO champ Teofimo Lopez's recent win over Jemaine Ortiz: "Spouted all this trash about me and then almost got taken to school. Like I've been saying—focus on your fight, not me. Time to reset, Teofimo, you're playing the palooka," Crawford tweeted with undisguised shade.
Regis Prograis, former WBC super lightweight titleholder, didn't pull any punches either: "Teofimo looked like he was boxing with shadows," Prograis commented, critiquing the champ's form.
Despite the ringside critics, Lopez clinched the win with the judges' unanimous nod and notched a personal best in punches landed—a stat that speaks louder than the trash talk.
