Terence "Bud" Crawford gets back in the ring Saturday night against Jose Benavidez Jr. in Omaha at the CHI Health Center.

Fight week has been filled with animosity. Crawford (33-0, 24 knockouts) will defend his 147-pound title for the first time in a bout televised on ESPN. He and Benavidez (27-0, 18 KOs) exchanged words at an event in Corpus Christi, Texas, earlier this year, fought on the same card in Las Vegas this summer and have jawed during this prefight buildup.
