Terence Crawford vs Amir Khan preview

Amir Khan attempts the improbable when he travels to Madison Square Garden to take on undefeated pound-for-pound king Terence Crawford.

Crawford, the undefeated WBO welterweight champion, has won all of his 34 fights, and was the undisputed champion in the super-lightweight division, before moving up to 147lbs.

Khan has only had two comeback fights since taking an extended break from boxing, defeating Phil Lo Greco and Samuel Vargas. The 32-year-old was knocked down in the latter fight and is considered to be a rank outsider in New York.
