Those fight fans who saw Terence Crawford dismantle Ricky Burns to take the WBO lightweight belt may wish to tune in this Saturday night to see the American make his first defence of the bet.

Crawford, who has a record of 23-0 with 16 wins by way of knockout, will be taking on the former IBF / WBA featherweight champion, Yuriorkis Gamboa, at the Century Link Centre in Omaha, Nebraska.

Gamboa enters the ring with a record that reads 23-0 with 16 wins by knockout, a record identical to that of Crawford?s.

Both men have distinguished amateur careers behind them and the fight experts are expecting Gamboa, a 2004 Olympic gold medal winner, to give Crawford the toughest fight of his career.

The fight has all the makings of being a cracker, as for a winner we?ll let you decide!
