Terence Crawford vs. Amir Khan: Fight time, PPV price, how to watch, live stream
Terence Crawford, quite arguably one of boxing’s pound-for-pound best, returns for the first time in 2019 to put his WBO welterweight championship on the line in taking on former unified junior welterweight champion Amir Khan on Saturday, April 20, at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
After notching a third-round destruction of Julius Indongo in August 2017 to become the undisputed junior welterweight champion, Crawford (34-0, 25 KOs) moved up to 147 pounds last June and hasn’t looked back. The 31-year-old battered Jeff Horn to win by ninth-round TKO and capture the WBO belt. He went on to successfully defend the title in October, stopping José Benavidez Jr. with 18 seconds left.
With a lack of challengers at welterweight in the Top Rank stable, Crawford needed someone to help establish him as a force to be reckoned with. Boxing fans wanted Crawford to face IBF titlist Errol Spence Jr. to see who the king of the division and the sport would be. Spence fought Mikey Garcia in March instead, so Crawford went to one of the biggest names in the game.
