Mikey Williams/Top Rank Boxing

The WBO welterweight championship is on the line tonight (Saturday, April 20th) at the iconic Madison Square Garden in New York City. Terence Crawford (34-0, 25 KOs) is widely considered one of the best pound-for-pound boxers in the world, and he’ll defend his title against Amir Khan (33-4, 20 KOs), a former world champion himself at junior welterweight.

Crawford is understandably a big favorite over the Englishman, whose chin has never been the greatest. However, Khan is one of the more well-credentialed opponents Crawford has faced to date, and combining that with Amir pretty much never being in a boring matchup, this should produce fireworks.

Also on the card is a big co-main event between lightweight sensation Teofimo Lopez (12-0, 10 KOs) and top-ten contender Edis Tatli (31-2, 10 KOs), as Lopez looks to raise his profile and aim for a world title shot less than three years into his pro career. Featherweight prospect Shakur Stevenson (10-0, 6 KOs) is also in action against former junior lightweight world title challenger Christopher Diaz (24-1, 16 KOs) in a major step-up in competition for the 2016 Olympic silver medalist.
