OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The manager for Terence ''Bud'' Crawford says an agreement in principle is in place for the WBO lightweight champion to fight in his hometown of Omaha next month against Yuriorkis Gamboa.

Cameron Dunkin said Friday night that a contract is yet to be signed, but he added that ''it will be a fun time'' for Omaha to host a world title fight for the first time since heavyweight champion Joe Frazier beat Ron Stander in 1972.

The Crawford-Gamboa bout is planned for June 28 at the CenturyLink Center.

Crawford won his WBO title in March with a win over Ricky Burns in Glasgow, Scotland. Gamboa is the interim WBA lightweight champ.
