On Saturday, October 24, 2015, Terence Crawford (26-0, 18 KOs) returns to the CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Nebraska in front of a hometown crowd to put his WBO 140-pound title on the line against Dierry Jean (29-1, 20 KOs).
The scheduled 12-rounder will be televised on HBO.
Crawford, after being crowned the 2014 Fighter of the Year and moving up to 140 pounds, is fresh off his stoppage win against Thomas Dulorme in April to win the vacant WBO title.
Crawford will be making his first defense against Jean, who previously fought for a title in the only loss in his career, which was against Lamont Peterson in January of 2014.
