Video: Crawford's Trainer Discusses Indongo Showdown

TERENCE "Bud" CRAWFORD returns to the ring in August. Crawford will risk his WBO, World Boxing Council (WBC) and Ring magazine world titles against undefeated International Boxing Federation (IBF), International Boxing Organization (IBO) and World Boxing Association (WBA) world champion Julius Indongo in a battle of undefeated 140-pound world champions.  Crawford vs. Indongo will take place Saturday, August 19, at Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Nebraska.

The event will be televised live and exclusively at 10 p.m. EDT on ESPN and ESPN Deportes and stream live on the ESPN app.

Crawford (31-0, 22 KOs), of Omaha, Neb., is a two-division world champion who has won six of his last eight bouts by stoppage.  In his 2017 debut which took place on May 20 at Madison Square Garden, Crawford successfully defended his titles via a 10th-round stoppage of former Olympic gold medalist and top-rated contender Félix Díaz.

It is premium cable’s most-watched fight for 2017.  Crawford unified the 140-pound titles in a battle between consensus Top-10 pound-for-pound fighters on July 23, 2016, successfully defending his WBO junior welterweight title for the third time by winning a unanimous decision over previously undefeated WBC super lightweight champion Viktor Postol. 

That victory also garnered him The Ring title, designating him the lineal champion.  He made his first defense of his unified titles on December 10, 2016, stopping No. 1 contender and one-time world title challenger John Molina Jr. in front of a record crowd at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha. 

Indongo (22-0, 11 KOs), from Windhoek, Nambia, has become a unified world champion in true road warrior fashion.  He captured the IBF junior welterweight title on December 3, 2016, knocking out defending champion Eduard Troyanovsky.  In his next fight, on April 15, he unified the titles by shellacking defending WBA world champion Ricky Burns via a dominant unanimous decision.  Both victories took place in Russia and Scotland, the home countries of Troyanovsky and Burns, respectively.

I didn't exactly hear Crawford's trainer mention Spence's name at the end of this interview. He mentioned everybody but Spence, but Spence-Crawford is the fight I would like to see.

still stunned the way he ended Felix Diaz career

The only real advantage Crawford has is the home town advantage. Indongo might have to run in the snow in Nebraska, or catch pneumonia. Indongo is a big jump from John Molina. I look for a good match between TWO…
