Terence Crawford vs Amir Khan Fight live.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.
Khan (33-4, 20 KOs) returns to the United States for the first time since he lost by sixth-round knockout to Saul “Canelo” Alvarez in May 2016. Following the fight, Khan took nearly a two-year hiatus and has beaten Phil LoGreco and Samuel Vargas in his native England.
Khan won the 140-pound WBA title from Andreas Kotelnik in July 2009. The 32-year-old made four straight defenses of the belt before adding the IBF strap in when he scored a fifth-round knockout of Zab Judah in July 2011.
Boxing pundits and fans alike feel Khan has seen his better days, and Crawford will make it look rather easy. Khan possesses the experience and packs a hard enough punch to where he can give Crawford plenty of problems.
Still, can Khan pull off the monumental upset? Or does Crawford continue to exemplify when he’s one of the best in the world?
