Crawford (34-0, 25 KOs) is arguably the best fighter in the world as well as a three-weight world champion who has knocked out five consecutive opponents. To add to Crawford’s accomplishments, Crawford unified the 140 lbs division along with winning “Boxer of the Year” award in 2017 from the BWAA and ESPN. Crawford is coming off back-to-back knockout wins over Jeff Horn and Jose Benavidez Jr. in his first two bouts at the welterweight division.
Khan (33-4, 20 KOs), a former unified world champion at 140 pounds, has won two in a row since his 2016 knockout loss to middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez, which Khan moved up two weight class for a major fight. Khan is best known for his body of work at 140 lbs., but is currently 4-0 in his career when fighting as a welterweight, including wins over former world champions Devon Alexander, Chris Algieri, and Luis Collazo.
Khan also trains with famed boxing trainer, Virgil Hunter.
