'We want them all': Terence Crawford is just getting started

HornCrawford- Cropped Jeff Horn and Terence Crawford
Sidney Guerrero | 12 June, 2018, 21:27

Terence Crawford outclassed Jeff Horn to win the WBO welterweight title in dominant fashion in Las Vegas Saturday.

Fenech watched from the stands at the MGM Garden Arena on Saturday morning (AEST) as Horn took three attempts to come under the 147 pound (66.67kg) welterweight limit - much to the delight of Crawford's camp, and to the derision of the majority of the crowd assembled.

IBF title-holder Errol Spence is seen by many as the top welterweight, while Danny Garcia and Shawn Porter will fight for the WBC strap in August and WBA champion Keith Thurman is expected to return from injury in September.

"Crawford said that's a nice looking belt, and I said "yes it is", Horn said. He's a terrific fighter. "He reminds me of Sugar Ray Leonard and that is a great compliment because I always thought Leonard was the best", gushed Arum.

Crawford stated his intention to unify the division, saying: "We want them all [the belts]".

In the five years since I first met him at Pallara State School where the Fighting Schoolteacher was trying to keep the lid on a gaggle of boisterous nine-year-olds, I have never seen him in a bad mood, never heard him raise his voice, never heard him badmouth anyone. It is going to take a better man than the Queensland folk hero to prevent him dominating the division for the foreseeable future, having now become the sixth fighter in history to win titles at lightweight, junior welterweight and welterweight.

"I think there was something up their sleeve with this one because Crawford was just under the weight and I was just over". He had Horn in big trouble as he lashed him with crushing punches that probably would have put opponents away when he fought in the smaller junior welterweight and lightweight divisions. Like in the amateurs, they generally have a test set of scales and I can't for the life of me understand that an event of this magnitude, you don't have another set, the same, at the back here.

Amazon under fire due to "harsh" working conditions
Amazon said it found two of the violations-excessive overtime and use of agency staff-during an audit of the factory in March. Meanwhile, Foxconn "works hard to comply with all relevant laws and regulations", according to the same Reuters report.

Horn escaped with a payday of about $2m, taking his career earnings to at least double that, and was quick to assure his family and fans that Crawford had not inflicted any serious physical damage.

"He's a classy fighter, hopefully he shows some humility". Crawford continued to pound him in the ninth round, landing two right hands and a left that hurt him badly and forced him to touch his gloves to the canvas for a knockdown.

Horn beat the count, but Crawford unleashed another barrage and referee Robert Byrd called a halt at 2:33 of the round.

FightNights.com had the fight a shutout for Crawford at the time of the stoppage. Horn threw only 59 punches in the last two rounds.

"One thing with this ESPN platform is we have the dates", Arum said. "It's up to him how busy he wants to be". "We here you know, the power came up, physicality got stronger", said Crawford. "I'm fine", he said. "[I want] other champions, other big fights, Bob make it happen", said Crawford. "He kept on countering Jeff's shots one at a time". In the end, Crawford was just too good.

"That's by getting in without getting hit, bullying him around, doing what he done to (Manny) Pacquiao".

The welterweight division was on notice.
