The two have been ordered to fight by the WBO as they want them to meet in the ring to decide who is the winner of the Welterweight Belt.
Currently Crawford holds this belt, so there is a lot on the line for him, and both fighters have 30 days to agree on a deal otherwise the WBO will order a purse bid.
Despite the boxing fight being ordered by the WBO, it is definitely a good event and no doubt many will be tuning in to watch it.
30th July: Shawn Porter speaks out for the first time on his feelings after finding out he was going to fight Terence Crawford.
27th July: Top promoter Bob Arum has said that the fight should take place in November.
Negotiations for the fight are underway, so for now we do not know too much about the date of the fight, but with there only being 30 days for a deal to be agreed, we should know the date of the fight in the next month.
Crawford was meant to fight Errol Spence Jr before this new fight was ordered, and so currently the bookies are having to change the fight details. According to Oddschecker, Crawford was the favourite against Spence JR and no doubt he will be the favourite again.
It will be interesting to see which promotion picks up the event and decides to sell tickets. With the two boxers both American, it will be very likely that not only the event will be held in the USA, but it will also be dealt with by American promotions.
Both have really good records, and will not want to receive a loss following this fight as it would tarnish their reputation. Here are the stats of the two:
Win By KO: 28
Win By KO: 17
The fight between the two is a mouth-watering prospect, and hopefully it lives up to expectations and a fight day gets announced soon.
