Terence Crawford vs Amir Khan ring walk and start time for UK fans

Amir Khan is back in the big time as he challenges for his first world title since 2016 tonight.

The Bolton-born boxer faces off against Terence Crawford for the WBO welterweight title.

It is Crawford’s second defence of the belt after defeating Jeff Horn in June 2018, taking him to No.2 in The Ring’s pound-for-pound rankings.

Khan’s last world title fight ended in a devastating defeat to Canelo Alvarez and sees this fight as something of a last-chance saloon to become world champion again.

Here is all the key informational you need to know about the fight…
