Horn No Match For Crawford Like Everyone Predicted

Horn No Match For Crawford Like Everyone Predicted

Terence Crawford's introduction to the welterweight division was a dominant one on Saturday as he disarmed and clinically dismantled WBO champion Jeff Horn. Crawford (33-0, 24 KOs), who unified all four 140-pound titles last August, became boxing's latest three-division champion with a ninth-round TKO of Horn at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

"Like I told you all before, I'm strong," Crawford said after the fight. "You all didn't believe me, and I was way stronger than him. You all kept telling me how strong he was but you didn't give me enough credit, and I had to show you all."

The 30-year-old Crawford, who entered as the No. 2 pound-for-pound fighter in the world, according to CBS Sports, also made a strong case for his supremacy in the entire sport. Horn (18-1-1, 12 KOs), a native of Australia, was simply never in the fight and saw his trademark aggressive style routinely picked apart by Crawford's clean counter shots.

"He's a very good boxer," Horn said. "I knew he was going to be on the back foot countering. I thought I could beat him coming forward, and it proved to be a bit too much. Well done, Terence Crawford, a great fighter. He was strong and didn't seem like a smaller guy, that's for sure."
