It looks like all that speculation is going to lead to a fight after all.

Terence Crawford and Amir Khan will make what’s being dubbed a “long-awaited announcement,” according to a press release, on Tuesday, January 15, at the Landmark London Hotel.

Whether their imminent fight takes place in London remains to be seen, but the mere location of their press conference would lead many to believe that could very well be the case.

After scoring a scintillating TKO of Jose Benavidez Jr. in October, Crawford (34-0, 25 KOs) closed out his 2018 by fielding all kinds of speculation about who his next opponent would be, including having an entertaining run-in with Errol Spence Jr. in November.

The reigning WBO welterweight champion has never fought an opponent with the star power and name recognition of Khan (33-4, 20 KOs), who is a former welterweight champion himself.

“King Khan” was brutally knocked out by Saul “Canelo” Alvarez in May 2016, but the 32-year-old returned to the ring last year, scoring a pair of wins over Phil Lo Greco and Samuel Vargas. That said, he has done little to disprove his reputation for having a suspect chin.

A Crawford-Khan fight should pack intrigue nonetheless, with “Bud” continuing his charge at 147 pounds before eventually colliding with the likes of Spence or Keith Thurman for a possible unification bout.
