Terence Crawford vs Amir Khan: Where to Watch, Live Stream Info and Odds for WBO Welterweight Title Bout

The WBO welterweight title will be on the line in New York City on Saturday night, when Terence Crawford takes former unified light-welterweight champion Amir Khan.

Arguably one of the best pound-for-pound boxer at the moment, the American is unbeaten since turning professional 11 years ago. His British opponent looks to have lost some of the shine that propelled him to dominate his weight class almost a decade ago, but remains hopeful of causing a major upset.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Saturday

When and where is the fight?

The Madison Square Garden in New York will host the bout. Both boxers have fought in the Big Apple twice before in their careers.

The main card begins at 9 p.m. ET with the main event scheduled to get underway at 11:30 p.m. The undercard includes Teofimo Lopez fighting Edis Tatli, while fellow lightweight Felix Verdejo will take on Bryan Vasquez.

Featherweights Shakur Stevenson and Christopher Diaz will also cross path in New York before the main event.

Previous records

A world champion in three different weight classes, Crawford puts his unbeaten record on the line on Saturday. The 31-year-old is 34-0 since turning professional, with 25 of those wins coming by KO. Crawford won the WBO welterweight title in June when he stopped Australia’s Jeff Horn in nine rounds in Paradise, Nevada.

Four months later, he defended his belt against Jose Benavidez Jr. by stopping his fellow American with 18 seconds left in the 12th round.

Khan, meanwhile, has a 33-4 record, with 20 wins by KO. A former unified light-welterweight world champion, the Briton held the WBA title from 2009 and 2012 and the IBF belt in 2011 and makes his return to the U.S for the first time since losing in six rounds to Saul “Canelo” Alvarez in 2016.

The Bolton-born fighter left the sport for almost two years after losing to Alvarez, before returning to the ring and defeating Canada’s Phil Lo Greco and Colombia’s Samuel Vargas over the last 12 months.

Odds

Crawford goes into the fight as the overwhelming favorite. William Hill has the Nebraska native as a 1/12 (-1,200 in moneyline terms) favorite to win, while Khan is a 6/1 underdog and the draw is at 25/1.

At the age of 32, Khan appears past his best and bookmakers expect Crawford to make light work of his opponent. The American is 4/11 to win by KO or TKO, while a win by decision is at 16/5. By contrast, Khan’s chances of winning on points or by stoppage stand at 9/1 and 14/1, respectively.
