Crawford vs Khan on tap for late 2018?

Last weekend, Amir Khan, following a 2 year absence from the ring, roared back with a 39 second KO of Phil Lo Greco (28-4, 15 KOs) at Echo Arena in Liverpool, England.

And just like that, Khan is back in the conversation at welterweight.

In fact, Top Rank, who promotes top 10 pound-for-pound boxer Terence Crawford (32-0, 23 KOs), recently queried Crawford vs Khan to the latter's promoter, Eddie Hearn.

Crawford, of course, makes his welterweight debut June 9 against WBO champ Jeff Horn.

"Top Rank seem to forget that Crawford has a big fight on June 9. [Top Rank CEO] Bob Arum and his errant matchmakers are kidding themselves if they are looking past Jeff Horn, thinking Crawford is going to win that fight," Dean Lonergan, Horn's manager, told Sky Sports.

"Maybe the whole welterweight division should wait and see the outcome of Horn against Crawford as a superstar from Down Under is about to emerge. With Manny Pacquiao and Randall Bailey already on his resume, Terence Crawford is going to be a nice scalp to add to it."

Should Crawford prevail over Horn and secure the WBO welterweight title, don't expect Khan vs Crawford right away as those teams might not be able to agree on location or purse split. Moreover, given Khan just returned from a two year hiatus, having him face Crawford so soon might not be in his best interest.

Late replacement Vanes Martirosyan is a massive underdog against Gennady Golovkin in the May 5th Cinco de Mayo showdown.

Last night, in a WBA middleweight final eliminator, former belt-holder Daniel Jacobs (34-2, 29 KOs) won a tough but somewhat impressive unanimous decision over previously unbeaten Maciej Sulecki (26-1, 10 KOs) at Barclays Center, Brooklyn, New York.

Jacobs vs Sulecki prediction: Showcase city

There's an old philosophy in boxing that basically says: "Never judge a fella based on an awesome losing performance."

Unified middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin was given a temporary pass by the IBF to face Vanes Martirosyan on May 5th.

In his most recent bout against Canelo Alvarez last September, Gennady 'GGG' Golovkin had a guranteed purse of $3 Million, not including promised percentages of the PPV revenue and other residuals.

Late replacement Vanes Martirosyan is a massive underdog against Gennady Golovkin in the May 5th Cinco de Mayo showdown.
