Press conference will be tomorrow and then one in NY on Thursday, and it's a good fight.
After signing Khan to a promotional deal, Hearn had hoped to secure a showdown with Brook, but admits he has chose to battle another of the sport's top fighters in Crawford, who has won titles in three weight divisions.
"The Crawford-Khan showdown is a very interesting matchup of two elite fighters", said Top Rank chairman Bob Arum.
"Crawford is a world champion, a global phenomenon and perhaps the best pound-for-pound fighter in the sport, and Khan is a fighter that everyone wants to see every time he steps in the ring", said Burke Magnus, ESPN's executive vice president of programming. I'm going to have to be in the best shape ever to win this fight. Not only do all four of them have other fights lined up, they each fight under the Premier Boxing Champions banner and are tied to the PBC broadcast partners, Showtime and Fox, while Crawford is tied to ESPN.
Amir Khan can not be criticised for taking a fight with Terence Crawford, but a British battle with Kell Brook has been plunged into fresh doubt, says Eddie Hearn.
"I just feel that this has got the world title on the line, he's pound-for-pound up there as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters", Khan told Sky Sports News. I know a lot of people are saying I've got no chance against someone as good as Terence but I firmly believe I will be the first man to beat him and take his place in the pound-for-pound rankings. "I'm excited about this fight because I believe it can push my career to another level".
While Khan and Brook seemed to be near a deal for a fight potentially at Wembley Stadium, but towards the end of 2018, Khan would be offered a rumored $5 million to fight Crawford in a pay-per-view main event.
The 2004 Olympic silver medallist said: "For my legacy it is a great fight".
He previously went with Joe Goossen for his last two bouts because Hunter fell ill, now that Virgil is better Khan felt it was only right to return to his former trainer who helped improve his counter punching abilities. "But we're not taking any shortcuts in this fight", said Crawford.
Since moving up to welterweight in 2014, the 32-year-old Khan (33-4, 20 KOs) owns wins against former titleholders Devon Alexander and Luis Collazo and former junior welterweight titlist Chris Algieri. Khan has never shirked from a big challenge.
