Amir Khan vs Terence Crawford Live, Stream Terence Crawford (No. 2, No. 2 P4P), the former lightweight champion and undisputed junior welterweight world champion, will make his second welterweight title defense against Amir Khan on Saturday, April 20 in the main event of a Top Rank Boxing card that ESPN will broadcast Crawford vs Khan live stream on PPV (9 p.m. ET),
As he did in 2016 when he stepped up to challenge middleweight king Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, Khan rolls the dice once again in his attempts to return to boxing’s elite ranks.
The Bolton fighter rejected the chance to take on long-term rival Kell Brook, instead opting to challenge for Crawford’s WBO title.
Khan has been eager for a meeting with one of the welterweight’s truly elite names, seeing his past pursuits of lucrative bouts against Floyd Mayweather Jnr and Manny Pacquiao fall by the wayside.
In Crawford, he finally has that fight and another chance to prove he belongs in boxing’s top bracket.

“I am confident I can win this fight because he has never fought anyone like me,” Khan said. “I have power, speed, and movement, and he has certainly never fought a welterweight like me. I’ve grown into my weight. I’m not just another number on Crawford’s record.”
Crawford isn’t looking past Khan, even though a lucrative fight vs. fellow welterweight titlist Errol Spence could be on the horizon (though it certainly won’t be an easy bout to make between the two promoters).
But there’s a good reason Crawford is such a big favorite. He is, after all, one of the two-best fighters in the world. He’s also still fighting for respect, because he doesn’t feel he gets the credit he deserves for the good fighters he makes looks ordinary when he faces them.
“Sometimes it bothers me, but that just shows how dominant I am,” Crawford said. “When you got undefeated gold medalists and world champions, where before the fight a lot of writers and fans think that they’re going to steamroll me or they’re too big for me, and this is going to be the toughest fight of my career. After the fight, they say, ‘He wasn’t that good,’ or ‘He was a stand-up fighter,’ or ‘He was slow,’ or ‘We knew you were going to do this, we just had to hype up the fight.’ So they discredit me. When you look at the fighters I’ve fought, most of them haven’t been the same after
