  • Terence Crawford Defeats Jeff Horn By TKO, Becomes New Welterweight Champion

Referee Robert Byrd stopped the fight with 28 seconds left in the round. Early on, he tagged Horn as the champion tried to charge his way in.

The courageous Horn was all class in defeat but could not match Crawford for speed or punch accuracy. The WBO champion almost went down at the bell to end the eighth.

Then, with a little less than a minute left in the 9th, Crawford scored a left hand that caused the battered champion's hands to touch the canvas.

CompuBox statistics also painted a picture of total domination, with Crawford landing 155 shots to just 58 from Horn.

"Crawford said that's a nice looking belt, and I said "yes it is", Horn said. "I thought I could beat him coming forward, but he clipped me too much", said the former WBO titleholder.

"I think there was a bit of tricks up their sleeve with this one, because he was just underweight and I was just over". You know, y'all kept telling me how strong he was, but y'all didn't give me enough credit. "He wanted to fight in these gloves so that's what he gets".

Whether he gets those matchups remains to be seen, but other champs will take notice of his victory. Crawford put his undefeated professional record on the line against Australia's Jeff Horn, who won the WBO world welterweight title against Manny Pacquiao in 2017. Never was Horn (18-1-1) on the verge of winning a round. "If it's an error from the Horn camp, it's not a good error", Fenech said. "He's a classy fighter who fought a great fight".

Crawford is a tough and risky man, raised amid violence, schooled in a world of guns and drugs and so fierce and formidable that he once drove himself to hospital after a gangster shot him in the back of the head. He defend his belt twice in Omaha later than year, knocking out previously unbeaten Yuriorkis Gamboa in a star-making performance before dominating top-ranked challenger Raymundo Beltran to become the lineal champion at 135 pounds.

Roland-Garros - Nadal surclasse Thiem et remporte son onzième Roland-Garros
L'Espagnol a parfaitement commencé et fini ce set, ne laissant que l'Autrichien l'accrocher en milieu de première manche. Nadal est resté imperturbable sur ses mises en jeu et s'est même permis de briser son adversaire (5-2).

In the co-main event, Jose Pedraza defeated Antonio Moran by unanimous decision for a regional lightweight title. After two successful defenses, he outdistanced WBC beltholder Viktor Postol here at the MGM Grand in July 2016 to unify those titles and become the lineal champion at 140. He'll fight for the first time Saturday night since he knocked out Namibia's Julius Indongo (22-2, 11 KOs) with a body shot in the third round of their super lightweight title unification fight August 19 at Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Against an Aussie known for only his strength, however, Crawford looked like the bigger fighter.

An immediate unification against Keith "One Time" (or is it "Some Time") Thurman might make sense if Thurman appears vulnerable in his return fight, but a prime Thurman's combination of size and power might be biting off a bit more than "Bud" can chew in his second fight at the weight.

The two fighters were originally scheduled to meet April 14, but Crawford injured a hand in training, which resulted in the fight being postponed.

Despite the pre-fight antics, Horn made no excuses.

The bout itself played out the same way. But he'll be squaring off against one of the more formidable opponents of his career in Terence Crawford.

"Like I told you all before, I'm strong". "Y'all didn't believe me".
