The WBO welterweight championship is on the line as Terence Crawford aims for a successful defence against David Avanesyan.
Many had hoped that Crawford would be fighting against Errol Spence Jr. to decide the undisputed title at 147lbs, but instead he will fight his European welterweight champion opponent instead.
Crawford’s most recent fight was a little over a year ago when he beat Shawn Porter, prompting his fellow American to retire.
Avanesyan’s last fight was against Oskari Metz back in March, when he defended his EBU welterweight title.
