Terence Crawford (32-0, 23 KOs) vs. Julius Indongo (22-1, 11 KOs) was an important fight in boxing history, as the victor would be only the ninth undisputed four-belt champion in boxing history.
Indongo came to Crawford’s native state of Nebraska to attempt to upset the pound-for-pound champion.
Unfortunately for Indongo, Crawford was the calmest he has ever been and gave his opponent no time to settle in.
Indongo was dropped in the second via a Crawford left hand to the head, but survived the round. The fight only lasted one more round however, as Crawford cracked Indongo’s body with a vicious left hook, dropping the Namibian for well over 10 seconds.
In the post-fight interview, when asked where he put himself on the pound-for-pound list after tonight, Crawford was candid.
“I gotta give this one to myself,” said Crawford with a smile.
Now the undisputed 140-pound champion, Crawford truly deserves all the praise he is getting and we can only look forward to seeing him continue his legacy.
