WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford will be returning to action against David Avanesyan on 10th December, as the two have officially signed contracts for a pay-per-view taking place at the CHI Health Center in Omaha, Nebraska, as confirmed by Crawford himself.

“I’m excited about this opportunity,” Crawford told ESPN on Thursday, “I was really looking forward to the Errol Spence fight. I started communicating with [boxing manager] Al Haymon and PBC back in June. And unfortunately, they represent a fighter in Errol Spence who didn’t want the fight as bad as I did.”

“I agreed to all of their [B.S.] and they’ve been dragging their ass for months. Spence was nowhere to be found while I was trying to make the deal,” ‘Bud’ went on, “I explained to Al Haymon and Errol that I was going to fight before the end of the year. … David Avanesyan is a very tough task. He’s knocked out his last six opponents and this guy is dangerous. Once I’m successful against Avanesyan, my plan is still the same: Whoop Errol Spence’s ass.”

Having been the WBO 147-pound champ since 2018, Crawford has made five title defenses and in his last outing in the ring, he marked a 10th round TKO victory over Shawn Porter in November last year at the Michelob Ultra Arena in Paradise, Nevada.

Avanesyan, an Armenian-Russian pugilist who has held the European welterweight title since 2019, is currently on a six fight win streak. His last victory came in March this year, in a first round knockout of Finland’s Oskari Metz at The SSE Arena in Wembley, London.
