CompuBox: Crawford Lands 67% of Power as Southpaw
Pride of Omaha, WBO lightweight champion Terence Crawford switched to southpaw in round five and dominated remainder of fight after Olympic gold medal winner Yuriorkis Gamboa started strong in the first four. In rounds five thru seven, Crawford landed nine jabs per round and a whopping 67% of his power shots as the game (and undersized) Gamboa suffered his first pro defeat.
Hmm...wondering if he could've beaten Gamboa using the orthodox stance. After all, Gamboa was winning until TC switched to southpaw. Will be interesting to see how Gamboa does against M. Garcia if they fight.Comment by mathed on 06-29-2014
