Terence Crawford broke his silence on a recent suspended boxer’s YouTube video stating what kind of women the top stars should date.

Tyan Booth, known for his controversial posts after starting his own channel, asked the question; ‘should a world champion boxer have a fat girlfriend?’ – recently.

In reference to his latest video, Booth used a picture of Crawford and his wife Debbie. Twitter reacted, alongside some of those involved in the sport.

Jamel Herring said on the ‘fat-shaming’ row: “I would tell that fool, “focus on his fight, before he doesn’t make it to his fight” but dumb*** is a suspended fighter anyway.

Along with having his license revoked by the British Boxing Board of Control, the 35 year-old has now been removed from Twitter for his quip about Crawford.

Enough complaints seem have been made to seemingly have Booth kicked off the social media platform for now.

Crawford, who is currently training to fight Amir Khan on April 20, made a simple ‘we do have passports’ threat to Booth once word of his post got around.

It’s unknown how long Booth will have to sit it out as he gains notoriety for his harsh words.

During his career, Booth lost eleven times. The Nottingham man challenged unsuccessfully for the English title during that time.

In his final contest, Booth shocked Joe Gallagher protege Marcus Morrison to record a first victory in a while.

Booth was unable to capitalize due to comments made regarding tragic Scott Westgarth and former world champion Gerald McClellan.

The BBBofC issued their punishment due to the following comments by Booth:

“Some people would enjoy it if I got killed in a boxing ring like Scott Westgarth. Man down,” he said.

“I’m boxing myself in two weeks and I’ve spent the past three months drinking cider and not training properly. So there’s a good chance I’ll end up in a ­wheelchair like Gerald McClellan, so tune in.”

It’s unlikely Booth will be granted a license in the near future by the British Board.

Twitter, on the other hand, is usually more forgiving.
