Crawford's welterweight debut vs Horn on June 9 in Vegas

LAS VEGAS — Unbeaten Terence "Bud" Crawford will challenge WBO champion Jeff Horn in his welterweight debut June 9 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Top Rank announced the matchup Thursday between Crawford and Horn, who won a unanimous decision over Manny Pacquiao last July.

Crawford (32-0, 23 knockouts), from Omaha, Nebraska, became the undisputed junior welterweight champion last August when he stopped Julius Indongo in the third round. Crawford became the first 140-pounder to unify all four major world titles.

Horn (18-0-1, 12 knockouts), from Brisbane, Australia, last fought in December and stopped Gary Corcoran in the 11th round to defend his WBO title.
