Terence Crawford scores TKO over Jeff Horn, wins WBO welterweight title

A BRUISED but defiant Jeff Horn emerged at the MGM Grand on Sunday morning adamant he can still mix it with the best boxers in the game after his first defeat. With the win Crawford claimed a world title in a third weight division.

Horn will have won some of his U.S. critics over simply by absorbing punishment for so long from arguably the world's top pound-for-pound fighter. Crawford, who improved to 33-0 with 24 knockouts, battered Horn for eight rounds, knocking him down in the ninth with a flurry of blows. Pacquiao is set to face Lucas Matthysse in July, for Matthysse's WBA title, but also has openly campaigned to face Vasyl Lomachenko in his next fight.

He would not rule out a fight with Anthony Mundine and reiterated that he wanted to make as much money from boxing while he could and that consideration of his health was paramount. "It just wasn't my night", Horn said. I still feel I can match the best. "I've felt worse after fights before".

It's left Horn, who now has a 18-1-1 professional record, with a sense of unfinished business in America. I always knew he would be crafty and skilful but I didn't realise how hard he would be to catch, " Horn said.

It has been speculated that other U.S. promoters could look to match their up-and-coming fighters with Horn because of the test he can provide.

The former WBO lightweight champion and undisputed super-welterweight champion, Crawford, sharp-shooted his way to victory and ultimately outclassed Jeff before securing a ninth-round stoppage.

Numerous posts attribute obviously false quotes like "We don't need gun control, we need faggot patrol" to the British star. Ironically, it appears her last post was a quote-tweet of the Being Me Campaign, an anti-bullying group.

"Crawford is no Sugar Ray Leonard but he is still very talented".

But Lonergan said he had no regrets about Horn's first Vegas experience.

"I definitely want to come back and have some big wins over here".

But, it was not all because of his skills, insists the Australian's trainer Glenn Rushton.

"Jeff was just that little bit off with his timing but in the end that made all the difference".
