Garcia vs Lopez: Terence Crawford to face Alejandro Sanabria in HBO co-feature

Josh Hedges

Prospect Terence Crawford will face Alejandro Sanabria on June 15 in the HBO co-feature to the Mikey Garcia-Juan Manuel Lopez main event.

Terence Crawford, who made his HBO debut on March 16 with a win over Breidis Prescott, will be back on the network's airwaves on June 15, facing Alejandro Sanabria. The fight will be the co-feature to the Mikey Garcia vs Juan Manuel Lopez main event.

Crawford (20-0, 15 KO) impressed with his ability to easily defeat Prescott, and with his skills, but received mixed reviews when it comes to entertainment. Though the Pernell Whitaker name drops will flow while he's on HBO, he's no "Sweet Pea."

But the 25-year-old Crawford does look to have the ability to become a contender at 135 or 140 pounds, regardless of how much fun his fights are for the average viewer.

Sanabria (34-1-1, 25 KO) shouldn't be written off as a pushover, though. Though he did lose to Robinson Castellanos, then just 7-8 as a pro, back in 2010, Castellanos has gone on to become a legitimate contender at featherweight, ugly record aside. And Sanabria has won ten straight since that fight. His last fight was a 10-round split decision win over Nery Saguilan in November 2012.
