On August 19th Julius Indongo will attempt to do something no one has achieved to date – defeat pound for pound rated Terence Crawford.
Likewise, Crawford will attempt to become the first to take Indongo’s ‘0’.
Crawford has looked progressively better and better in recent years, when in the ring. Slight tweaks to his game each time out have formed a formidable force at 140lbs to date.
An incredibly effective style personified by a ten out of ten boxing IQ.
To date, 29 year old Crawford is 31-0 (22KO) and holds wins over solid opposition in the sport that includes the likes of Breidis Prescott, Ricky Burns, Viktor Postol, Thomas Dulorme and Yuri Gamboa.
To name a few.

Indongo is also an undefeated fighter 22-0 (11KO) so like Crawford, doesn’t know how to lose either and should make for Crawford’s toughest test to date.
He shares a win with Crawford over three-weight world champion Ricky Burns from Scotland, and also knocked out the respected Eduard Troyanovsky back in March of 2016.
Speaking ahead of his showdown with Crawford, Indongo commented:
“Me and my team went to New York City – a trip of 20 hours from Namibia –to watch Terence Crawford against Felix Diaz. I will tell you this – Crawford is a real champion. He had a big impressive win over Diaz. Crawford showed me real character in that fight. On August 19th, Crawford’s skill and power will bring out the best of me. I am ready and prepared to face him.”
