The latest installment of Top Rank Boxing on ESPN is a big one, as WBO and WBC junior welterweight champion Terence Crawford (31-0, 22 KOs) takes on IBF and WBA champion Julius Indongo (22-0, 11 KOs) in a crucial unification bout on Saturday, August 19th.
For the third consecutive fight, Namibia’s Indongo will be competing in enemy territory, this time in Crawford’s home state of Nebraska.
While Crawford is a native of Omaha, this fight is happening at the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln.
If he unifies all the major belts, one can only assume he’ll look for bigger names and big money fights, even if that means moving up to welterweight.
Indongo is a big underdog here, but that didn’t stop him from knocking out Eduard Troyanovsky in a huge upset late last year.
