Here is what Crowley had to say about training camp, Ramos
On what he’s shown the boxing world with his most recent
“With my last two wins broadcast on SHOWTIME® and SHOWTIME
PPV, I proved to the world that I’m an elite fighter. I
belong in every conversation regarding the welterweight
division. I earned the right to challenge for the
welterweight championship of the world."
On where he can still improve as a fighter:
"As a fighter, there is always room for improvement. I’m an
all-around fighter. I can box, I can punch, I can take a
punch and I can outthink any opponent who is in front of me.
Improvement will come as I am able to get more activity and
not deal with as much ring rust. Improvement will also come
as the stakes in each fight are raised."
On his opponent, Abel Ramos:
"Abel Ramos is a solid fighter. I believe that he is coming
to fight and will be very aggressive. But, he is now in the
ring with an extremely hungry fighter. As the fight
progresses, I will discover the holes in his style. With my
non-stop aggression, I will suffocate anything he’s trying
On where he stands in the welterweight division:
"I truly believe that I am one of the top three welterweight
fighters in the world. The only ones ahead of me are Errol
Spence Jr. and Terence Crawford. Fighting either of them, I
can then prove to be the best in the world. I believe that I
can beat either of them, because I’m younger and hungrier.
There is no one who can keep up with my relentless attack
and determination in the ring.
"Right now, I believe that I’m better than any of the other
contenders. It’s time to fight for the world title. It’s
time to fight Errol Spence Jr.”
On fighting in memory of his late father:
“Dedicating this fight and my career to honor my father's
memory means everything to me. He was and still is my
greatest fan. He pushed me to succeed. He believed in me
when there was nobody else. Becoming welterweight champion
of the world is our dream.
"With my father's passing, I started ‘55 for 55’ to raise
funds and awareness for suicide prevention. It is my goal to
help people and save lives with this program and for it to
be another way of honoring his memory."
