Terence Crawford is on the cusp off becoming the next superstar of boxing. The unbeaten (28-0, 20 knockouts) WBO junior-welterweight champion from Omaha, Nebraska will hit the big time should he defeat WBC junior-welterweight champion Viktor Postol on Saturday, July 23.
Victory will almost certainly lead to a career defining fight against boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas on Nov. 5. A potential Crawford v Pacquiao match-up would be intriguing for sure and capture the imagination of the boxing public as they search for a new American Idol to fill the void left by Floyd Mayweather Jnr.
HBO give a unique insight into the career and highlight the complex path to glory that Crawford has endured.
