There is so much on the line Saturday at Madison Square Garden when Amir Khan faces Terence Crawford in a world welterweight title bout.
Some consider Crawford to be the best pound-for-pound fighter in the game today. Others say Crawford has avoided the big fight and has beaten opponents he knew he could handle. But this bout changes that.
Khan, meanwhile, is known for his attacking style — but sometimes fragile chin. He’s an Olympic silver medalist (2004) and has never shied away from a big fight.
Tonight these fighters take to the ring. One tries to emerge officially as the world’s top pound-for-pound fighter, while the other looks to revitalize a potential Hall of Fame career.
