There are two belts on the line for the eagerly awaited bout.

The victor will take the vacant WBO interim super-welterweight title, while Madrimov is defending his WBA super-welterweight title.

Terence Crawford record

Crawford remains unbeaten after 40 fights. The 36-year-old’s superb record has seen him win 31 of those bouts by KO and he remains one of the most feared boxers on the planet.

Last year he was ranked as the world's best active boxer, pound for pound, by The Ring, the Boxing Writers Association of America, the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board, ESPN and BoxRec.

After turning pro in 2008, Crawford immediately caught the eye and recorded early victories over the likes of Aaron Anderson, Miguel Delgado and Ron Boyd, among others.

He won the WBO lightweight title when he defeated Ricky Burns in Glasgow, Scotland in 2014, and continued his rise to prominence when beating Viktor Postol in Las Vegas two years later, securing the WBC and the then-vacant The Ring light welterweight titles.

Further memorable successes followed over Felix Diaz and Jose Benavidez Jr, while British duo Amir Khan and Kell Brook both proved no match for the American in 2019 and 2020, respectively.

Crawford retained his WBO welterweight title against Shawn Porter via TKO in November 2021, then did so again when knocking out David Avanesyan a year later. 

In his most recent appearance last July, Crawford was at his awesome best when he overcame the considerable challenge of Errol Spence Jr in front of nearly 20,000 fans at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Crawford dominated and won the fight by a ninth-round technical knockout, thus becoming the first undisputed welterweight champion since 2006, and the first male boxer in the four-belt era to claim undisputed championship status in two weight divisions.

Israil Madrimov record

Madrimov is by far the more inexperienced of the two and only turned professional in 2018. He has won 10 of his 11 fights to date, seven by KO, with his one draw coming against Michael Soro in July 2022.

In November 2018 he first won the vacant WBA Inter-Continental super-welterweight title thanks to a sixth-round technical knockout victory over Vladimir Hernandez in New Jersey.

Madrimov has claimed notable scalps since, in particular when beating Alejandro Barrera in October 2019 at Madison Square Garden in New York.

He beat Soro in their original meeting in December 2021, before the rematch the following summer was declared a technical draw following a clash of heads in the third round which cut Soro near the left eye rendering him unable to continue.

Last time out in March, he impressed in Saudi Arabia when stopping Kurbanov in the fifth round to pick up the vacant WBA super-welterweight title, and his tough upcoming clash with Crawford is his first defence of that belt.
