Photos: Crawford, Benavidez Trade Words at Open Workout

Terence Crawford is excited to be back in Omaha, his beloved hometown and the site of many of his greatest fistic moments. The man nicknamed "Bud" will defend his WBO welterweight world title Saturday evening against Jose Benavidez Jr. at the CHI Health Center Omaha (formerly the CenturyLink Center), live on ESPN and ESPN Deportes beginning at 10:30 p.m. ET. His four CHI Health Center outings have drawn nearly 45,000 fans, and another packed house is expected. (photos by Mikey Williams).

The long-simmering animosity between Crawford and Benavidez spilled over into Wednesday's media day, with the pair and their respective teams exchanging verbal haymakers.

The ESPN broadcast will also include 2016 U.S. Olympic silver medalist and top featherweight prospect Shakur Stevenson (8-0, 4 KOs) in a 10-rounder against the battle-tested Viorel Simion (21-2, 9 KOs).

[QUOTE=Leonbus2;19183689]Same comments on every single Crawford article. Can't you guys discuss boxing? Instead it's "garbage fight" variations ad nauseum. This is why the pinnacle of boxing journalism is Dan Rafael. A man who can barely write correct sentences. Of course,…
