Terence Crawford patted Felix Diaz on the head and pounded uppercuts into his eye in his latest dominant victory. His next fight could bring him all four 140-pound belts. Or it could bring him Manny Pacquiao.

Crawford remained unbeaten when Diaz's corner stopped the fight after the 10th round of the 140-pound fight and looks ready for whichever of his options comes later this year.

Crawford had dominated after a couple of close early rounds and Diaz's left eye appeared swollen shut, making him helpless to spot Crawford's lightning-fast combinations.

Crawford (31-0, 22 KOs) toyed with Diaz in the 10th, backing him into the corner and then, rather than throw any punches, patting him on the head. He then unloaded a couple hard shots toward the end of the round, prompting trainer Joel Diaz to tell referee Steve Willis his fighter could no longer continue.

Afterward, Crawford named longtime superstar Pacquiao and welterweight champion Keith Thurman as fighters he'd want if he moves up in weight. But he may stick around at 140 a little longer to grab the two belts he doesn't own.

Crawford successfully defended his WBC and WBO titles. Promoter Bob Arum said the Omaha, Nebraska, fighter would return this summer and they could look to unify the titles against Julius Indongo, who holds the WBA, IBO and IBF 140-pound titles.

The shorter Diaz tried to get inside but was kept away by Crawford in the first round, though he landed a couple of hard shots when he closed the distance in the second — when he won the only round he was credited with on one judge's card. The fighters stared at each other after the round ended, but Crawford seized control from there.

Almost 60 % that's freaking insane. His opponents might as well be blindfolded, they can't see that sh[I]i[/I]t coming.

Crawford is between a rock and a hard place. Too good for guys his size and no paydays in sight. He'll have to give up something, some edge. Indongo shut down the UK market @140, so traveling is out. All…

Pretty impressive against a former gold medalist.
