Terence Crawford is at the very summit of boxing right now, but that wasn’t the sport on his mind on Tuesday. The champion took the day off to go cheer on his daughter Talaya Crawford at a track meet, where the seven-year-old competed in a variety of races. Crawford, who is often hailed as a supportive dad, was seen going all vocal and cheered for his daughter, who was close to finishing the race. He shared moments from the day on his Instagram story and fans appreciated the 36-year-old’s effort to encourage his children with their interests.
In the video Crawford shared, he is seen shouting for his daughter to keep going as the race draws to a close. When she completes it, he can be heard telling her that she did a good job. The meet was hosted at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. Just like her dad, Talaya Crawford is a talented athlete. The young track and field competitor won gold medals at the Cornhusker State Games in the 100m, 200m and 400m categories. She also famously won a race where she lost her shoe, and had to go back to get it, and still came out on top.
In the video Crawford shouted, “Go Laylay!” thrice before saying, “Good job baby.”
Spence intends to have a rematch with Crawford
Despite coming off one of the biggest wins in his career, it looks like Terence Crawford might not be entirely done with Errol Spence after all. Spence recently made his intentions to have a rematch with Crawford. For his part, Spence said that he is holding his head high and won't be covering in shame after being dominated in the ring.
On social media, he said that he had his “head up like a nose bleed” and that “Even if I had [an excuse], I wouldn’t give it to you.”
Speaking about a potential rematch, he said, “Hell yeah, we got to do it again. I'm going to be a lot better, it's going to be a lot closer. It's probably going to be in December because it's set before the end of the year.”
The rematch will most likely happen in December due to contractual obligations around this week’s fight. There is also the issue of Crawford making weight, something that will most likely have to be discussed and agreed on well before any fight can be scheduled. However, with the nine-round domination by Crawford, it is likely that ‘Bud’ thinks he can take Errol at any weight.
