Many had expected that Crawford would be taking on Errol Spence Jr. to decide the status of undisputed at 147lbs, but he will now challenge the European welterweight titlist instead.

Crawford’s most recent action in the ring was just over a year ago when he defeated Shawn Porter, causing his fellow American to retire.

Avanesyan’s last bout was when he took Oskari Metz back in March 2022 to defend his EBU welterweight championship.
