Undefeated WBO lightweight champion Terrence Crawford 25-0 (17k Ko’s) defended his belt a few moments ago with a 12 round boxing clinic against the always very tough and durable Ray Beltran. Beltran who is Manny Pacquaio’s main sparring partner came into the fight 29-6 (17 Ko’s), but certainly earned his shot at the title after many believed he was robbed last year when he went to the U.K. to fight Ricky Burns. Beltran was handed a draw in a fight most every boxing fan believe he won hands down. In that contest he battered Burns from pillar to post even breaking his jaw in the second round and dropping him hard in the eighth
In March of 2014 Terrence Crawford made the trip over the pond to the United Kingdom and handed Burns his third career loss by way of unanimous decision, in the meantime taking his strap back home to Omaha, Nebraska. Most sport fans these days know Omaha from Peyton Manning constantly yelling it at the line of scrimmage. However, there is certainly a new face to be associated with Omaha and his name is Terrence Crawford. Century Link Stadium was packed with 11,000+ screaming fans with one special fan in attendance Mr. Omaha himself, Warren Buffet. However, Mr. Buffet who is a very knowledgeable fan of sport said, “Terrence is the new face of Omaha!”
Crawford dominated from the first round and swept all there scorecards 119-109,120-108, 119-109. Beltran came to fight and had his moments, but Crawford was just to much to handle. Crawford dominated the fight with a sledge hammer like jab and switched to southpaw in round two confusing and frustrating Beltran. Beltran landed a few solid hard chopping punches in several rounds, but Crawford shook them off with his iron chin and came right back every time with dazzling shots that hurt Beltran.
Crawford with less than 100 amateur fights was a stand out amateur boxer beating current world champions Mikey Garcia and Danny Garcia. The hardcore boxing fans are buzzing about Crawford and already throwing his name around in the pound4pound list. Once the mainstream fan catches on, you will certainly see some big fights and this kid has the tools to make history.
