Terence Crawford's Return: Jean Emerges as Frontrunner

By Steve Kim

The return of Terence Crawford is slated for October 24th in Omaha, Nebraska. What hasnt been decided is who his dance partner will be that night.

According to a couple of sources, Dierry Jean has emerged as a leading candidate to land this assignment.  Jean, who fights out of Montreal, has a record of 29-1 (20 KO's) unsuccessfully challenged Lamont Peterson in January of 2014 for the IBF junior welterweight  title.

Jean has won four  fights since that point, including a ten round decision over Jerry Belmontes on June 20th.

Other names such as Humberto Soto and Antonio Orozco were in the mix but it looks like they will be facing each other on October 3rd.

Crawford(26-0, 18 KO's) stopped Thomas Dulorme in six rounds on the night of April 18th in what has been his only appearance of the year.

[QUOTE=BertoRollin';15907109]Huge let down. TC went from fighter of the year to fighting 2 tuneups this year. Maybe he just needed a break.[/QUOTE] I would understand if he was having grueling 12 round affairs, but he's easily won 4 of his…
