WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford set to face Shawn Porter in November

Top Rank and Premier Boxing Champions reached a deal hours ahead of a scheduled purse bid for a WBO welterweight title fight between champion Terence Crawford and Shawn Porter on Nov. 20 at the Michelob Ultra Center at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

Porter, a former WBC champion, represents the biggest challenge of the unbeaten Crawford’s career.

“Porter is without a doubt Crawford’s toughest fight at welterweight, and I think Crawford may be Porter’s toughest fight,” Top Rank vice president Carl Moretti, who was in Puerto Rico for the purse bid, told Yahoo Sports.
