Khan has had his hands wrapped and will begin his warm-up in the dressing room now.
Outside of the changing rooms, Khan’s domestic rival Kell Brook has arrived at his seat.
Brook has been calling out Khan for years, but the pair have never been able to agree a deal, despite apparently being close before the Crawford deal was agreed.
Bryan Vasquez vs Felix Verdejo has just finished, so we have two more fights remaining before Khan and Crawford are on.
Shakur Stephenson is up next, the US Olympian who has been linked with a fight against Ireland’s Michael Conlan.
After that, Edie Tatli takes on Teofimo Lopez.
The King is here. Khan and his team have arrived at MSG ahead of tonight’s fight, and the star has a message for fans back home.
In a video posted by Top Rank, Khan told fans that it’s time for work.
“Hey guys, just coming into the arena now, it’s work time,” he said.
We have three more fights before Khan and Crawford, so it’s likely that we could be waiting until roughly 5am.
Khan is well aware of the magnitude of the task ahead of him, but told Express Sport that he has a game plan for the fight.
“I’ve been training hard, I know he’s dangerous, he’s a good fighter, But I believe I’ve got his number,” he tells Express Sport.
“I don’t think he’s fought anyone with the skills that I have. I can’t make any mistakes, I know I need to stick to my game plan.”

Hello and welcome to Express Sport’s live coverage and updates of Amir Khan vs Terence Crawford.
Khan is attempting to become a two-weight world champion tonight, whilst also putting to bed the memories of his devastating knockout defeat against Canelo Alvarez in 2016.
That was the Bolton star’s last outing in the US, but since then he has recorded wins against Phil Lo Greco and Samuel Vargas.
The pair are expected in the ring at roughly 4.30am UK time, but until then we’ll have plenty of coverage
