These talented veteran boxers will square off at 9 p.m. ET, and if you want to watch this highly anticipated pay-per-view event, you have a number of options. Read on to find out more about the matchup and.
Omaha native Terence Crawford is one of the best in his weight class with a shining record of 34 wins – 25 by knockout – and zero losses. The fast-handed boxer is known for his quick style and his ability to switch between orthodox and southpaw stances Along with being the current World Boxing Organization welterweight champion (a title he won last June shortly after vacating his unified light welterweight championship), Crawford has held multiple belts across the lightweight, light welterweight, and welterweight classes.
Amir Khan clearly has his work cut out for him if he wants to dish out Crawford’s first defeat. Khan’s record of 33 wins (20 by knockout) and four losses isn’t flawless like that of Crawford, but the British-born former WBO junior welterweight title holder remains one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in his class. Although Crawford is favored to win, it’s not likely that Khan will be an easy takedown for the American champion. Prior to the main event, the Terence Crawford vs. Amir Khan pay-per-view undercard will feature a junior middleweight bout between NABF champion Carlos Adames who is defending his title against challenger Frank Galarza. Four other undercard fights are planned as well, and you can view the lineup here.
