Crawford: I Hurt Him Plenty of Times, Looked To Finish

Terence Crawford stopped Yuriorkis Gamboa in the ninth round in Omaha, Nebraska, on Saturday night to retain his WBO lightweight title. Crawford wobbled Gamboa with a left and knocked him down with another left earlier in the ninth, then connected with a right to the chin, prompting referee Gino Rodriguez to call the fight over 2 minutes 53 seconds into the round. It was the fourth time Gamboa went down in the contest. 

"I imagined everybody screaming, supporting me. It was everything I thought it was going to be. He caught me with a good shot in the ninth, at the beginning. It got my attention and buzzed me a little. I hurt him plenty of times," Crawford said, "so when I hurt him the last time, I was looking to finish."

The 26-year-old Crawford improved his professional record to 24-0, including 17 knockouts.

Crawford fought south paw and masterfully out boxed and out powered a talented fighter who the insipid morons picked to TKO an under skilled, slow and powerless Crawford. You people are incredible dummies. Bet you picked Russell to KO Lomachenko,…

Easy to hurt a guy 2 classes below you. I bet a welterweight or JM would kill Crawford. Then he would know what it is like to fight bigger guy.
