This weekend, one of boxing’s top fighters, WBO welterweight champion Terence “Bud” Crawford, returns to the ring, where he will defend his title vs. unbeaten #1 contender Egis “Mean Machine” Kavaliauskas. The fight will take place from Madison Square Garden on Saturday evening and air on ESPN at 9 p.m. ET.
Crawford (35-0, 26 KOs) is looking for a third defense of his welterweight crown against Kavaliauskas (21-0-1, 17 KOs), but it’s admittedly not the fight that he prefers at the moment. Crawford is looking for unification matches, and the biggest names possible at this point.
