Welterweight rivals settle their feud in feiry grudge match
Omaha, Nebraska (October 13th, 2018)– 33-0 pound-for-pound sensation Terence Crawford makes the first defense of his WBO World Welterweight Title against 27-0 Jose Benavidez in his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska, live on BoxNation tonight at 2am UK and on ESPN Plus App 9am ET.
Benavidez has called for this clash for a couple of years and there is genuine bad blood between these two. This week their respective camps were booked into different hotels to minimize the risk of any incidents, but they nearly came to blows at Wednesday’s media workout.
Crawford hopes to secure huge unifications with the likes of Errol Spence and Keith Thurman, but cannot overlook his unbeaten challenger.
Tune in at 2am to watch one of boxing’s very best! On the undercard, hot prospect Shakur Stevenson faces his toughest assignment against Viorel Simion, plus US 2016 Olympian Mikaela Mayer continues her rise through the professional ranks.
