Crawford is a three-weight world champion who has made four title defenses since knocking off Jeff Horn in June 2018. He is the first boxer in the four-belt era to become the undisputed junior welterweight champion.
The 34-year-old has an eight-fight knockout streak, which dates to July 2016 over Viktor Postol.
Porter has been in the pros for 13 years. He previously scored victory over then-undefeated Devon Alexander for the IBF welterweight title. In his first title defense, he knocked out two-weight world champion Paulie Malignaggi.
The 35-year-old once donned the WBC world welterweight title after going the distance with Yordenis Ugas, but dropped the two titles in a split decision loss to Errol Spence Jr.
The undercard for November 20 has yet to be announced.
