Crawford Drops Dulorme Three Times For TKO in Six

By Ryan Burton

Arlington, Texas - Terence Crawford (26-0, 18KOs) became a two-division world champion with a sixth round knockout of Thomas Dulorme (22-2, 14KOs) to capture the vacant WBO junior welterweight championship. The belt became vacant last November after the sanctioning body stripped Chris Algieri for moving up in weight to challenge Manny Pacquiao for his WBO welterweight title.

The official time of the stoppage was 1:51 of the sixth round.

The fight started off with Dulorme as the aggressor. Not many shots were landing but Dulorme was winning rounds with his aggression. Dulorme started to get his timing down in the fourth as he started to throw more power shots.

In the six Crawford landed a right hand on the button to stun Dulorme and then followed up with a barrage of shots to put him down two minutes left in the round. Dulorme rose to his feet but it appeared the end was near. Dulorme was on shaky legs and would go down for a second time after a few more punches. Once again he was able to make it up and continued his best to survive the onslaught. Crawford did not let him off the hook and continued to land to drop Dulorme for a third time, and the referee waved off the fight as Dulorme nearly went out of the ring.

Crawford will be a leading candidate to face stablemate and the aforementioned eight-division champion Pacquiao.

Bud Crawford is awesome, this guy is making me a bigger fan every outing. He's a pretty big welterweight too, all kinds of guys I'd like to see him fight between 140-147. Future looks real bright post-Mayweather/Pacquiao.
