Andrey Klimov to face Terence Crawford on October 5

ESPN Friday Night Fights

Klimov (16-0, 7 KO) is coming off of a win over John Molina, while Crawford (21-0, 16 KO) has a pair of wins in 2013 on HBO.

Terence Crawford has reportedly found his October 5 opponent, when the lightweight prospect returns to HBO on the Cotto-Rodriguez bill in Orlando. Andrey Klimov, who was recently seen on ESPN Friday Night Fights scoring a minor upset over John Molina, will be Crawford's competition.

Klimov (16-0, 7 KO) won a majority decision over 10 rounds against Molina on June 7 in what was his biggest and most notable victory to date. The 31-year-old Russian turned pro in 2009. Crawford (21-0, 16 KO) has emerged as a prospect to watch this year, with a pair of wins on HBO over Breidis Prescott and Alejandro Sanabria, both one-sided in his favor.

HBO will have the two live fights that night, as well as live coverage in the afternoon of the Wladimir Klitschko-Alexander Povetkin fight from Russia, which will also be replayed with the fights from Orlando.

Does Klimov have any chance at the upset here, or is he going to be out of his depth with the talented Crawford?
