Amir Khan agrees Terrence Crawford fight

14 January 2019

Sportsmail reported on Thursday that a deal was imminent and a formal announcement of Khan's challenge for Crawford's WBO welterweight title will be made in London on Tuesday.

British boxer, Amir Khan has agreed to a deal to fight in the U.S. against unbeaten WBO world welterweight champion, Terence Crawford.

On Thursday, there will be another media gathering in NY, according to a source with knowledge of the schedule of the fight rollout. Crawford, Khan, Top Rank chairman Bob Arum, and Matchroom Boxing CEO Frank Smith will be attending the press conference.

Crawford (34-0) is a three-division world champion rated among the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world.

They've exceeded the bar. "Everybody's in for an extraordinary treat of storytelling and of magical, magical production". But Entertainment Weekly warns fans not to get their hopes up for a full " Game of Thrones " season trailer on Sunday.

After knocking out Jeff Horn to claim the WBO strap last June, the 31-year-old dominated Jose Benavidez in a successful first defence in October.

Khan, who last held a world title in 2012, will fight in the United States for the first time since his knockout loss against Canelo Alvarez in May 2016.

This agreed fight with Crawford means the long-awaited domestic clash between Kell Brook and Amir Khan will be delayed once again.
