A world championship fight is coming to the city of Omaha for an affordable price.

In just about a month Terence Crawford will go up against John Molina JR at the Century Link Center.

Tickets are starting at about 25 dollars and the highest will be about 125 dollars.

Crawford's fight promoter says they are making tickets reasonably priced as a way to give back to the city.

"This is without a doubt the best fight in the 140 pound division."

"Terence is a hell of a fighter, he's undefeated for a good reason, he's champion for a good reason and it's my job to disrupt that," said John Molina JR.

"I know he's going to train his heart out to take what's mine, and I am going to train my heart out to keep what's mine," said Terence Crawford.

Two fighters will go at it in just a few weeks.

A champion to the world and to Omaha is coming back to fight in his hometown and for a very good price.

"A very, very affordable price, tickets are 125 dollars for ringside."

"The fact that you can take a date or one of your kids to a Terence Crawford fight I think it's a great thing for Omaha and I think it's a great thing for boxing," said Steven Gates.

Fans say Crawford has always supported the city he grew up in and it's the city's job to support him back.

"They could have put any price on it in my opinion and people would have paid it so for them to make it reasonable I think that's awesome," said Chad McMahon

A fight like this happening in Omaha, Century Link Director of Communications says for sure will put Omaha on the map.

"It's a great thing for our city, and it’s also a great thing for the people who come here because they get really excited to be able to come and cheer on their hometown hero," said Kristi Andersen.

Tickets are currently being sold and expected to sell out fast.
