American Crawford is seen as a heavy favourite to beat Khan and improve his record to 35-0. Khan has won 33 of his 37 previous fights.
Khan returned to the ring after a two-year absence in 2018 and knocked out Phil Lo Greco inside 30 seconds, before defeating Samuel Vargas in a unanimous points win in September.
Khan will have the crowd against him when he takes on Nebraska-born Crawford at Madison Square Garden.
But he will not be phased by the US crowd as he has plenty of experience fighting in the States.
‘I am an American veteran now’, Khan said earlier this week. ‘I never thought I would have all these fights over here. Nor did I expect to be boxing as long as this.
‘But it’s gone much better than I ever thought it would. And now I’m looking for the biggest win of my life.’
