Crawford vs. Horn Rescheduled to June 9

The bout that features former undisputed junior welterweight champion Terence Crawford challenging WBO Welterweight Champion Jeff Horn has been pushed back from April 14 to June 9.

As reported by Bad Left Hook, the fight will still take place in Las Vegas, Nevada, but will move from the Mandalay Bay to the MGM Grand. An injury to Crawford’s right hand in training camp has forced the fight’s postponement.

Crawford became boxing’s first undisputed champion in a weight class in over a decade back in 2017, defeating Julius Indongo in August to unify all of the junior welterweight titles. Crawford has since given up those titles to step up to 147.

Horn controversially defeated Manny Pacquiao via decision last July to win the WBO Welterweight Title. He successfully retained the title back in December with an 11th-round stoppage of Gary Corcoran.
