Welterweight world titleholder Jeff Horn and former junior welterweight unified champion Terence Crawford will meet on Saturday, June 9, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The fight will headline an ESPN+ card.
Horn won the title in a huge upset over Manny Pacquiao by unanimous decision in July, 2017 at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia. He then defended the belt with a TKO victory over Gary Corcoran in December, also in Australia.
Crawford defeated Julius Indongo last August to become the undisputed junior welterweight champion of the world. He became only the second male boxer of the four-belt era to unify the four major sanctioning organization titles.
Crawford then vacated the belts to move up in weight for the chance to fight Horn.
