Reigning welterweight king Terence Crawford steps back inside the boxing ring this Saturday.
Crawford meets David Avanesyan from the CHI Health Center in Omaha, Nebraska for the WBO welterweight title. The event airs live on BLK Prime, a new streaming and video-on-demand platform.
All of that is part of the new and improved Crawford, who is 38-0 with 29 career knockouts to his credit. “Bud” will be looking to hand Avanesyan his fourth loss in 34 career bouts.
“It is business as usual,” Crawford said. “It’s great to have a fight date and a goal to work toward. I have a solid group of guys who are pushing me every single day, and we had a close-knit community during camp. This was one of my best camps, and I am motivated to put on a show for my fans in Omaha, who have had my back from the start of my career.
“David Avanesyan is a good fighter. He’s on a good winning streak, and beat a guy in the U.K., in Josh Kelly who people thought was going to be a star. I have to train like I am facing King Kong on December 10th, because Avanesyan has everything to gain and nothing to lose. I know he is going to bring everything on December 10th, so I’m not looking past him. This will be the best Avanesyan, so I have to be the best Terence Crawford.
“My goal is to remind the world that world I am the best fighter on the planet so everyone needs to tune in December 10 on this new BLK Prime PPV platform. I am fighting not just to be the best, but to give fighters fair and equitable treatment in negotiations moving forward.”
