Who is on the Khan vs Crawford undercard?

THERE’s plenty of anticipation to see if Khan can roll back the years and pick up his first world title since 2012.

But before the main event, the watching world will be treated to some high quality bouts on the undercard.

First up is the popular lightweight Teofimo Lopez, who makes the short hop to Manhattan from Brooklyn to face the handy Edis Tatli.

The 31-year-old Finn is no slouch and has a pro record of 31-2, but is fighting outside of Finland for just the second time in his career.

Next and another local talent in Shakur Stevenson – the former Olympian – will put his unbeaten tag on the line, with Puerto Rico’s Christopher Diaz looking to silence the home crowd.

And also on the bill, ‘El Diamante’ Felix Verdejo will face Bryan Vasquez in what is sure to be a frantic lightweight contest.
