Terence Crawford vs. ‘Mean Machine’ results and live discussion

45 0

It’s not just UFC 245 night, it’s a big boxing night at Madison Square Garden in New York.

WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford (35-0, 26 KOs) defends his title against mandatory challenger Egidijus Kavaliauskas (21-0-1, 17 KOs), a Lithuanian puncher who’s better known as “The Mean Machine.”

The co-main event is the real big fight, as IBF lightweight champion Richard Commey (20-2, 26 KOs) takes on rising phenom Teofimo Lopez (14-0, 11 KOs) for what is effectively the right to face Vasiliy Lomachenko in early 2020. It’s a really tough fight to call and certainly more compelling than the headliner.

Lastly, Irish Olympian Michael Conlan (12-0, 7 KOs) will look to get revenge on Vladimir Nikitin (3-0, 0 KOs), who controversially eliminated him from the 2016 Games in Rio. Conlan was famously irate and flipped off the judges after the decision was read.
