Amir Khan vs Terence Crawford Prediction and Betting Odds
April 18, 2019
On Saturday 20 April, WBO Welterweight Champion Terence Crawford (34-0-0) will welcome UK challenger Amir Khan (33-4-0) to the Madison Square Garden Arena in New York City, in a bout which is sure to exhibit all of the skill and flare we love about boxing.
Terence Crawford is now a three-weight World Champion and widely considered one of the best pound for pound fighters on the planet. Unbeaten in 34 pro bouts to date, he has bulldozed his way through the Lightweight, Super Lightweight and after beating Jeff Horn by TKO to win the WBO Welterweight title last June, he now bids to defend his third World title for the second time.
Amir Khan has earned his shot at America and his large UK fanbase will be full of hope that the former Olympic Gold Medallist can return to the form of old.
After a two year break from the sport, Khan returned to the ring in 2018 with wins over Phil Le Greco and Samuel Vargas. He is the clear underdog with the bookies for this main event, but confidence will be high as he visits the famous New York venue for the first time in his career.

However, Crawford has knocked out 25 of his 34 opponents and his relentless pressure fighting style is sure to take Khan out of his comfort zone, despite the Bolton, UK native having that two inch size advantage.
