No love lost between Crawford and Benavidez (0:41)

Terence Crawford and Jose Benavidez Jr. talk smack about each other ahead of their Saturday title fight on ESPN. (0:41)

WBO welterweight world titleholder Terence "Bud" Crawford (33-0, 24 KOs) will be making the first defense of his belt against Jose Benavidez Jr. (27-0, 18 KOs) in the main event of a Top Rank on ESPN card at the CHI Health Center in Omaha, Nebraska on Saturday.

There has been some animosity and heated exchanges between both fighters and fight fans should be treated to a very high-action fight with one of boxing's best pound-for-pound in Crawford.

Here's a look at where the money is going from Vegas bookmakers, along with opinions from boxing experts, boxers and trainers, and my prediction for the fight.
