WATCH-=LIVE]** Terence Crawford Vs. Amir Khan Fight (Boxing PPV) MATCH - 20 APRIL 2019
On Saturday, Terence Crawford will put his WBO welterweight title on the line against Amir Khan at Madison Square Garden in New York (ESPN Pay-Per-View, 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT).
Crawford, who is ranked No. 2 by The Ring at 147 pounds, had initially looked like he may face Luis Collazo but his promoter, Top Rank, made overtures to Amir Khan and instead were able to broker a bigger, more intriguing fight.
'The Crawford-Khan showdown is a very interesting matchup of two elite fighters,' said Top Rank chairman Bob Arum. 'Khan, when fighting at welterweight, is as good as there is, but he is fighting the division's best fighter and a pound-for-pound great. It will be an entertaining and competitive fight.'
