Amir Khan finalises deal to challenge Terence Crawford for WBO world title

Terence Crawford will be a heavy favourite when he faces Amir Khan later this year, in the latest defence of his WBO welterweight title.

WBO welterweight world champion Terence "Bud" Crawford and Amir "King" Khan will make a long-awaited announcement on Tuesday in London, England.

Khan will attend a press conference in the capital before immediately flying out to the U.S. to start a training camp. It's rumored that the fight will be held on ESPN PPV. He said the location of the fight is not set yet but that it would take place in Las Vegas or at Madison Square Garden in NY. The site is not expected to be solidified by the time of the news conference.

Lion Air is one of Indonesia's youngest airlines but has grown rapidly, flying to dozens of domestic and global destinations. Lion Air is the third-largest buyer of the updated single-aisle plane from Boeing, behind Southwest Airlines and Flydubai.

Another major reason the fight has been met with such a negative reaction as that it's expected to be on PPV.

Khan, who last held a world title in 2012, will fight in the USA for the first time since his knockout loss against Canelo Alvarez in May 2016.

The Briton has been repeatedly linked to a fight with Kell Brook and insisted he wanted to face his compatriot as recently as last month.
