MGM Grand, Las Vegas - WBO lightweight champion Terence Crawford (23-0, 16KOs) will make the first defense of his title on a date in the summer, according to Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum. The fight would likely land at venue in Council Bluffs, Iowa - which is nearby Crawford's hometown of Omaha.

Crawford captured the title in March with a dominating decision win over Ricky Burns.

The likely opponent for Crawford is the winner of Saturday's WBO eliminator between Ray Beltran (28-6-1, 17KOs) and Arash Usmanee (20-1-1, 10KOs), which is part of the HBO Pay-Per-View undercard to Manny Pacquiao-Tim Bradley II.

"Let's see what happens on Saturday night, because I would like him to fight the winner of that fight," Arum said.

Usmanee, Beltran, Crawford? Sounds like guys who left home, cut the apron strings, and are about to make serious money with that title Burns was holding hostage in Scotland.

Either man would be good. Too bad they couldn't do it in Omaha. I wonder when during the summer
