Top Rank has today confirmed that Yuriorkis Gamboa will take on Terence Crawford in Omaha, Ne. on June 28.

Crawford will be defending his WBO lightweight title in a battle of unbeatens at the CenturyLink Center.

A press conference is scheduled to take place on May 8 to formally announce the fight, which will be televised on HBO.

Crawford (23-0, 16 KOs) is making the first defense of his title, having just taken it from Ricky Burns this past March.  Meanwhile, Gamboa (23-0, 16 KOs) has been struggling to get a fight, and has been out of the ring since March 2013, when he defeated Darleys Perez in Montreal.
