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.
