CenturyLink Center, Omaha - In a battle of identical professional records, WBO lightweight champion Terence Crawford (23-0, 16KOs) had too much firepower for Olympic gold medal winner Yuriorkis Gamboa (23-1, 16KOs), as a crowd of over 10,000 cheered Crawford on. Gamboa was dropped four time in the contest, including two big knockdowns in the ninth, which forced the referee to wave things off.

"I think it was a good fight. We were two warriors who were fighting in the ring and he won. The referee made a decision that I was [unable to go on]. We will respect the decision of the referee, but I could have continued," Gamboa said.

Glass jawed Cuban wasted most of him prime IMO A fight with Broner would be good!

I think he could've continued but he would've gotten KO'd quickly after I believe, Crawford turn that fight around with the first knockdown. Gamboa had him hurt and we were looking at a fight that was even but with the knocked down I would've had Crawford ahead by a point. Gamboa just needs to...

Props and congratulations to crawford

I think he never recup from the first knock down, what amaze me is that he was able to hurt a much bigger man while he was himself in queer street, come down to 126-30 and forget about 135+
