Pound-for-pound star Terence Crawford will defend his WBO welterweight world title and unbeaten record on Saturday, November 20.

“Bud” is going to the ring against two-time welterweight champion and WBO No. 1 contender Shawn Porter at the Michelob Ultra Arena in Las Vegas.

Matt Kenny, Vice President, Programming & Acquisition, ESPN added:

“We are thrilled to present this blockbuster welterweight showdown exclusively on ESPN+ PPV. This is the kind of fight that boxing fans dream of and we are looking forward to a tremendous event on November 20.”

Crawford became the first man in the four-belt era to become the undisputed junior welterweight champion, and he is 4-0 with four knockouts since moving up to welterweight.

His knockout streak of eight dates back to July 2016, when he notched a one-sided decision over Viktor “The Iceman” Postol at MGM Grand Garden Arena to unify two of the junior welterweight world titles.

Porter first tasted championship glory in December 2013 when he outfought the previously undefeated Devon Alexander to win the IBF welterweight title.

He knocked out two-weight world champion Paulie Malignaggi in his first title defence before Brook edged him by majority decision in August 2014.

Over the next seven years, Porter continued fighting the welterweight elite, becoming a two-time world champion in 2018 when he toppled Danny Garcia to win the WBC welterweight title.

He defended that title against future Manny Pacquiao conqueror Yordenis Ugas before taking Errol Spence Jr. to the limit in a September 2019 title unification tilt.

After dropping a split decision to Spence, Porter regrouped with a one-sided decision over Sebastian Formella in August 2020 to set up the Crawford showdown.
