Terence Crawford going unnoticed yet again as he gets ready for his latest challenge just a week before the biggest fight of the year.
Halley’s Comet is visible from Earth every 74–79 years if you are lucky and interested enough to want to witness it.
The window of opportunity and the necessary information and equipment to gaze upon this once in a lifetime event is a little bit harder to come by.
On the 19th of August boxing will witness its own celestial comet once in a lifetime event when the brilliant Terrance Crawford (31-0, 22 KO) steps into the ring at the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Nebraska to face Julius Indongo (22-0, 11 KO) for all the marbles / belts in the the 140lbs division.
One man will walk away as the undisputed champion.
Now that’s a rarity in modern boxing and the only necessary information needed to witness this boxing comet moment is the date, the 19th, and the appropriate network/TV channel.
It’s that easy.
So why isn’t this fight the talk of the town?
Your guess is as good as mine. Could it be the overbearing shadow of a certain other fight. In fairness, that isn’t the only reason for a lack of interest.
It seems as if Terrance Crawford hasn’t had the benefit and budget in a promotional sense to truly encompass his talent and the obvious historic meaning of this fight.
In shortm ESPN has treated boxing fans to some very talented boxers on free television lately.
They’re bringing great fights to the public but without the necessary information and promo ahead of time it will continue to be a losing battle for the numbers ratings.
In comparison HBO and Showtime just really do a better job promotional wise-overall.
Come the 19th however I for one will be stargazing and fully expect Terrance Crawford to win by decision but a KO is not to be ruled out.
