Terence Crawford v Thomas Dulorme press conference (photos)

Terence Crawford and Thomas Dulorme went face-to-face ahead of their WBO super lightweight title clash next month.

The talented fighters have agreed to meet on April 18 at the University of Texas in Arlington following the WBO’s decision to approve the pair for the vacant belt.

Chris Algieri was stripped of the 140lb title on the back of challenging Manny Pacquiao unsuccessfully for the 147lb version in November last year, although the WBO have stipulated that the winner of the Crawford v Dulorme clash must defend the championship against the American.

So far, lightweight star Diego Magdaleno is being lined up to appear on the bill with more fights to be confirmed in the coming weeks.
