Terence Crawford did something that no other man in boxing has been able to do in over a decade.
The US' Terence Crawford on Saturday became the first undisputed boxing champion in more than a decade by knocking out previously unbeaten Julius Indongo in the third round of their super lightweight fight.
Crawford used his superior hand speed and power to dominate every round as he knocked underdog Indongo down for the first time in the second round with a left to the side of the head.
Another look at the stoppage can be seen below.
To Terence Crawford last undisputed heavyweight champion of the world was Jermaine Taylor, who in July 2005 sensationally failed to stop Bernard Hopkins.
Crawford will have to give up the IBF 140-pound title if he doesn't fight Lipinets next. Sound off in the comments section below with your thoughts. Crawford's impressive, quick victory left Lipinets livid, unable to process how the IBF granted Indongo an exception to fight Crawford.
Family Member Charged With Killing 3 Girls Under The Age Of 10
Donelan did say that police believe this incident is confined to this particular home. "I wear a uniform but I am a father". Investigators are looking into a homicide in Clinton after family members found three children dead in their home.
A super fight down the road at welterweight between Crawford and Spence is starting to bubble and could be a massive event with the proper build-up. A battle of big 140-pounders, that being Indongo versus fellow Crawford-victim Viktor Postol, sounds like a lively redemption encounter for both fighters.
The third-round knockout came as a surprise as Crawford missed with a right hook then landed what looked like a routine body shot. "I would like to thank everyone that came out".
"Belts matter and I am the only world champion at 140lbs - it is a big deal to me".
The way that Crawford eased to victory, quickly finding his range and timing to lay claim to all the super-lightweight world titles without even shipping any punishment was impressive to say the least.
The victor of tonight's unification fight will make history by becoming the first undisputed 4 belt world champion at 140 lbs.
