"Every fight he's been in people want to see because he's a true warrior and gives a great account of himself".
Crawford, 31, is widely considered one of the world's top three fighters, and he said: "Amir Khan's one of the top fighters in my division. But I feel this fight will put me where I need to be".
On paper, Crawford looks to have Khan's number, but the man from Nebraska is not overlooking his British opponent. There was more money to fight Kell Brook than there was to fight Terence Crawford.

"When I had the opportunity to take this fight against Crawford, I grabbed it with both hands and said "I'm going to take this fight", because it's such a big fight". I am fully motivated and ready for the best training camp of my life.
Crawford has won titles in three weight divisions, and as Khan's promoter Hearn was quick to point out, will actually represent a much tougher challenge. "I'm excited about this fight because I believe it can push my career to another level". "It's a fight he believes he can win, and on his night, Amir has all the speed and skills to beat the very best. In one respect, you have to take your hat off to him, in the other respect you have to say, we didn't really get the one we wanted, did we?" I really believe he matches up with that ability. "This is what boxing needs, more big-name showdowns, and this fight is a ideal example of the vision that we had when we teamed up with Top Rank", added ESPN Executive Vice President, Programming and Scheduling, Burke Magnus. "But we're not taking any shortcuts in this fight", said Crawford. He made his first defense with a one-sided 12th-round knockout of Jose Benavidez on October 13, but Khan is a more significant opponent than either of them. Following the Álvarez defeat, Khan took a almost two-year sabbatical from the ring, returning in 2018 with a vengeance.
Yet Khan (33-4), who recorded wins over Phil Lo Greco and Samuel Vargas in 2018 after a near two-year hiatus, insists he can spring an upset against the American.
