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.

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.
