Horn vs Crawford Live
The two-division world champion (32-0, 23 KOs) made history in his last bout in August, scoring a third-round knockout over Julius Indongo to become the undisputed junior welterweight champion. Realizing he had nothing more to accomplish, Crawford relinquished his titles and made the decision to move up to 147 pounds and became the mandatory challenger for Horn.

Originally, the fight was scheduled for April 21. But Crawford suffered a hand injury while training and had to pull out.
Horn (18-0, 12 KOs) put himself on the map in July 2016, notching a controversial unanimous decision victory against Manny Pacquiao in his home country of Australia. He quieted the critics in his first title defense in December, stopping Gary Corcoran in the 11th round.
A win over SN’s No. 3 ranked fighter will cement Horn as a legitimate champion. If Crawford is able to pull out the victory, he will not only capture his third world title in three different weight divisions, but vault himself into the position of the best boxer in the world.
This is a can’t-miss fight featuring one of the best to currently lace up the gloves facing an unheralded champion looking for respect.
