Unbeaten, pound for pound star Terence Crawford has been lined up for a February ring return in New York.
Following two sold out, home town shows at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Nebraska during the last 18 months promoter Bob Arum has revealed plans to showcase one of his stable’s gems around the country.
After missing out on a potential fight with Manny Pacquiao, Arum has wasted no time with Crawford’s next move – provisionally pencilled in for February 27 at the Madison Square Garden Theatre.
The two-weight World Champion has been earmarked as a potential heir to Floyd Mayweather’s throne and will be hoping victory in the Big Apple sets up a huge fight, back in Nebraska during the Summer.
Now at 28, Crawford has maturely developed since winning his first World Title, fast approaching two years ago.
A comprehensive, late stoppage victory over Dierry Jean last time out was shown on BoxNation screens back in October.
Mauricio Herrera and Hank Lundy have been suggested as two potential opponents as the WBO World Super-Lightweight Champion seeks a voluntary defence of his strap to kick off 2016.
