Terence Crawford vs. Andrey Klimov is On for Oct. 5

By Alexey Sukachev

It has been confirmed tonight by the Russian party, that Andrey Klimov (16-0, 8 KOs) will collide with highly regarded lightweight prospect Terence Crawford (21-0, 16 KOs) in a battle of undefeated sensations. The fight will take place on October 5 at Amway Center in Orlando, Florida, as a part of the Miguel Cotto vs. Delvin Rodriguez showdown. Crawford is currently rated #1 by the WBO and #3 by the IBF, while Klimov is IBF #7 and WBO #12 rated lightweight. The clash is set for ten rounds, and WBO NABO 135lb title will be at stake.

Crawford, 25, has come out of relative shadows this year, scoring a wide decision over rugged perennial contender Breidis Prescott of Colombia in March and then stopping 34-1-1 Mexican Alejandro Sanabria in June within six rounds. Klimov, 31, a former Russian and WBC USNBC beltholder, kicked off 2013 with a technical decision over 29-1, 28 KOs, Argentinean Matias Ezequiel Gomez in March; then showed guts and chin in a hard victory over another notable puncher John Molina en route to a majority decision – also in June.

"Klimov is as average as they come." He showed a lot of guts,skill, and class against Molina.

[QUOTE=Freedom2013;13666810]Klimov is okay, but rather ordinary. Why not put a [I]talented[/I] Russian like Denis Shafikov on HBO against Terrance Crawford?[/QUOTE] [QUOTE=Mikhnienko;13666839]Yeah pretty decent operator but feather fisted. Shafikov in some sort of eliminator would be perfect but Top Rank probably…
