We have a fight! And we almost had a fight at the weigh-in as WBC/WBO 140lb. world champion Terence “Bud” Crawford (31-0, 22 KO’s) faced-off versus WBA/IBF 140lb. world champion Julius “The Blue Machine” Indongo (22-0, 11 KO’s).
Crawford weighed in at the junior welterweight limit of 140lbs.
Namibia’s Indongo tipped the scales one pound under at 139lbs.
The two then engaged in a two-minute staredown that wouldn’t have ended if someone hadn’t stepped in to separate the combatants.
Crawford & Indongo are ready to battle in a the first four-belt unification since 2005, when Jermain “Bad Intentions” Taylor wrested all four belts away from Bernard “The Executioner” Hopkins.
Crawford and Indongo are expected to enter the ring around 11:30 Eastern time. Stay tuned to BoxingAfrica.com for all the details!
