Terence Crawford is action this weekend and he is putting up his WBO welterweight title against the unheralded David Avanesyan (whom he is expected to beat with relative ease). So if you’re a Crawford fan, or you just want to see one of the best fighters of the past decade fight, below are all the ways you can do that (spoiler alert — you’ll need to get on something called BLK Prime).
This isn’t the fight many fans were hoping to see this year. There was excitement back in September when it was reported that Crawford and Errol Spence Jr. had agreed to a welterweight unification bout. However, that fell through.
So now Crawford will take on the European welterweight champion, with many hoping he gets through it unscathed so we get to see Crawford vs. Spence Jr. some time next year.
Also on this card, former UFC, Bellator and Strikeforce champion Cris Cyborg will continue her forays into boxing. She will fight Gabrielle Holloway in the co-main event.
