The reaction of Terence Crawford’s trainer, Brian McIntyre, said it all. McIntyre, a wide grin plastered across his face, let out a hearty laugh and threw his own fists in a frenzy from Top Rank’s broadcast booth.“That was a good ending,” McIntyre said. “Good ending.” “I want to face the best,” he continued. “I want to fight against all of them. I thought (Jaime) Munguia was going to give me the opportunity, but I’m hearing that now he’s moving up in weight.“There’s a lot of good fighters in the division — I want to face all of them,” he continued. “There’s also (Jermell) Charlo and some other guys in the division that I want to face. But I just want to face the best fighters.”Doing so would allow him to inch closer to a world title and further cement him as the face of Dominican boxing — for many years to come. “That was a good ending!” Just wait for @BomacBrian’s reaction at the end of #AdamesDay 🤣🤣@CrystinaPoncher @TheEricRothman pic.twitter.com/kn6z7bNjyQ— Top Rank Boxing (@trboxing) July 2, 2019Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearHis animated offering came in response to Carlos Adames landing 20 hard punches in a ferocious flurry over the final minute of his dominating, unanimous-decision victory over Patrick Day at the Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, Calif. on June 28. Adames was way up on the scorecards and didn’t need to unleash that kind of powerful barrage.He did so anyway, displaying his hunger for more in the process.In many ways, McIntyre’s reaction should reflect the boxing community — pundits and fans alike — and its excitement for the 25-year-old bruising junior middleweight who keeps adding to his body count, now 18-0 with 14 KOs.“I just want to say to all the fighters in the division that ‘Caballo Bronco’ is here to stay,” Adames — who flew back to his native Dominican Republic following the win — told Sporting News in Spanish, through an interpreter. “I’m a top fighter. I’m a problem for every single one of them (in the division) and if they don’t want to face me, they better move up in weight because I’m coming for all of them.”And fast. The win over Day was the thumping puncher’s third victory of 2019. He still has the back half of the year with which he, his trainer Robert Garcia and Top Rank can play. Adames intends to close the year as strongly as he ended his fight with Day — ferociously.“I want to keep active,” told SN. “I want to keep fighting the maximum fights that I can fight. I like it that way. If the company offers me fights, I’m going to take them.”Adames’ urgent mindset goes further than just zeroing in on one of the division’s world champions, whether it be Jaime Munguia (WBO), Julian Williams (IBF/WBA) or Tony Harrison (WBC). That exigency is also about Adames shouldering the load of the Dominican Republic and filling what he feels has been a void for the Caribbean nation — a face to represent it for boxing.“I feel very happy because of the support from my country and my countrymen have given me,” he said. “I feel like we needed that for a very long time — someone to represent us well in boxing. I feel like that’s my responsibility and that’s what I want to do — I want to become the face of Dominican boxing.”MORE: Demetrius Andrade brilliant again, but Canelo, GGG fights not in sight yetThe nation’s youth frequently gravitates to baseball, a penchant that has produced 102 Major League Baseball players on opening day-rosters this season, spelling 11.6 percent of the MLB’s player base, as reported by The Associated Press. Adames, though, said he never flirted with the baseball diamond, opting for the sweet science at 12 years old to stay out of trouble. If he did ever get out line, Adames had plenty of people to wrangle him back to his path, with a whopping 23 brothers and 12 sisters.“I just went for training in boxing and that’s what I wanted to do,” Adames said. “I didn’t like any other sports.”Adames chose the right sport, piling up an amateur record of 273-7 before turning pro in July 2015. But just because he chose boxing over baseball, doesn’t mean that he can’t show love to a fellow slugger, especially when they’re arguably the most famous Dominican player to ever step foot onto the diamond.Adames dedicated his win over Day to fellow countryman David Ortiz, donning Big Papi’s Boston Red Sox jersey in the ring live on the ESPN broadcast. Ortiz is recovering after being ambushed in a shooting in Santo Domingo last month.Adames and Ortiz are friends who go back some years.“I felt very good that I dedicated the fight to him,” Adames said. “I spoke to him on the phone and he’s doing better. His wife is telling me that very soon he will be the same David Ortiz that we know and love.“He’s a legend, but I’ve known him for a very long time and I consider him just like my friend,” he continued. “It’s an honor to be friends with him and I thought it was a good gesture on my part to give him some support by dedicating my fight to him.”MORE: Charlo brothers vow to use experience as fuel as judges get call wrong againOrtiz being shot and a rash of U.S. tourist deaths there — nine confirmed, according to USA TODAY — made the timing of Adames’ dedication all the more special. He felt like he was uplifting his friend and Dominican Republic at the same time.Adames even acknowledged the bad publicity his beloved nation has received lately, offering the following message to Americans teetering on whether to visit.“I would like to welcome all those fans that want to come to D.R.,” he said. “They’re going to love it. I know that — like every country in the world — we have a situation right now.“Every country has their problems, but once people get to know the real Dominican Republic and the real things that we do, the nice people and all that, they’ll never want to go back to their own country.”According to reports, U.S. flights to D.R. are already rebounding. That should put a smile on Adames’ face — similar to what he’s doing with boxing fans in each of his fights. As he surveys the junior middleweight division, “Caballo Bronco” already believes he’s the hardest puncher at 154 pounds.“So far, I haven’t seen anyone (in the division) that punches as hard as I do,” Adames said.And he wants every plume of smoke with the elite.
