The official weigh-in for world championship boxing’s return to Omaha for the first time in 42 years, between undefeated world champions Terence Crawford and Yuriorkis Gamboa will take place today in Grand Ballroom A at the the CenturyLink Center in Omaha (455 North 10th St., Omaha, Neb. 68102).
This will be the last time both champions see each other outside the ring before they battle for Crawford’s WBO lightweight title, Saturday, June 28, at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha. Crawford vs. Gamboa will be the first world championship fight Omaha has hosted since Joe Frazier successfully defended his heavyweight title against Nebraska’s-own Ron Stander on May 25, 1972. It will also be a professional homecoming for Crawford, who has not fought in his home state since 2011.
