What channel is Terence Crawford fight
Three years ago, Terence Crawford headlined Top Rank’s annual “Heisman Night” boxing broadcast on ESPN.
Crawford responded almost immediately to one of the most-discussed moments of his career, when Egidijus Kavaliauskas’ right hand seemed to knock him down during the third round in December 2019.
The undefeated Crawford quickly regained control of their fight for his WBO welterweight title, dropped the then-unbeaten mandatory challenger nicknamed “Mean Machine” three times and stopped him in the ninth round at Madison Square Garden in New York.
That impressive performance helped intensify interest in the welterweight fight we all still want to see, a showdown with fellow unbeaten champion Errol Spence Jr. It was watched, according to Nielsen Media Research, by an average audience of 1,481,000.
One of Crawford’s prior appearances on ESPN, a 12th-round stoppage of Jose Benavidez Jr., attracted an average audience of 2,245,000 and a peak audience of 2,800,000.
His technical knockout of Benavidez in October 2018 also marked the last time Crawford headlined a card at CHI Health Center in his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska.
Most of the Top Rank main events ESPN televises don’t draw that type of viewership, thus those numbers provided further evidence that boxing fans would watch Crawford’s fights on that expansive platform, even against a vaguely familiar fighter whose name most of them can’t pronounce.
The welterweight pair will begin fighting at around 4:15am but this will depend on the duration of the lengthy event.
Action will be broadcast exclusively live on newly launched streaming service BLK Prime as a one-off pay-per-view event.
But it won’t come cheap as fans will have to fork out a hefty $39.99 [£32.55] to see the event live. Viewers can purchase the event here with action able to streamed on a range of devices including mobile, laptop and tablets.
Unbeaten American Terence Crawford knocked out David Avanesyan in the sixth round on Saturday to retain his World Boxing Organization welterweight world title.
Crawford, fighting in front of home fans at the CHI Health Center arena in Omaha, Nebraska, sent Avanesyan sprawling with a right hook at 2:14 of the sixth, improving to 39-0 with 30 knockouts.
A former undisputed light-welterweight world champion, Crawford made his sixth defence of the title he claimed when he stopped Australian Jeff Horn in the ninth round in June of 2018.
No opponent has taken Crawford the distance in more than six years.
He punished Avanesyan in the sixth with repeated left upper-cuts, finally following one short left with the right hook that knocked the challenger out cold.
Crawford’s 10th straight knockout ended the six-fight winning streak of London-based Russian Avanesyan, the reigning European Champion in the 147-pound division who fell to 29-3 with one draw and 17 knockouts.
Crawford’s latest victory could, at last, pave the way for a long-awaited matchup with fellow American Errol Spence Jr., unbeaten holder of the World Boxing Association, World Boxing Council and International Boxing Federation titles.
