Terence Crawford vs. Egidijus Kavaliauskas set for fall

Despite some obstacles, it looks like WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford (35-0, 26 KO) and mandatory contender Egidijus Kavaliauskas (21-0-1, 17 KO) will meet.

According to Mike Coppinger, the bout may take place in fall and, according to Bob Arum, the only thing that may prevent it is Crawford vs. IBF champ Errol Spence unification bout. However, Spence is already booked for Shawn Porter, so it increases the chances of Crawford vs. Kavaliauskas.

Kavaliauskas had an impressive head start in his career by knocking out 12 of his 13 opponents. He defeated such boxers as David Avanesyan and Juan Carlos Abreu in the last years and made it to a draw with Ray Robinson in his last fight. Kavaliauskas is now #1 WBO contender.

Terence Crawford is one of the best P4P boxers. Last time the undefeated champion entered the ring in April when he defeated Amir Khan by a sixth-round KO. Crawford may boast of victories over such opponents as Jeff Horn, Julius Indongo, Jose Benavidez, and Felix Diaz.
