Undefeated welterweight champion Terence Crawford (30-0, 21 KO's) will officially take on Felix Diaz (19-1, 9 KO's) at Madison Square Garden on May 20th. The fight will be televised by HBO beginning at 10:15pm EST. Crawford's WBO and WBC junior welterweight belts will be on the line.
While Terence Crawford has made his way to the P4P list as one of the top guys in the sports, the relatively unknown Diaz is expected to be a tough challenge. Diaz's only loss of his career came to the hands of a very good Lamont Peterson. The loss was very controversial as well with many claiming that they though Diaz beat Peterson soundly. Diaz is a 2008 Olympic Gold Medalist. Diaz was also able to dethrone the undefeated Sammy Vazquez, a guy that many thought would be an upcoming star.
This will be Crawford's first fight opening up the entire Garden, though according to journalist Steve Kim right now Top Rank only plans to open the lower bowl for the fight. The undercard has not been announced as of yet however 2016 Silver medalist Shakur Stevenson is expected to make his pro debut on the card
