Crawford became the first fighter in 11 years to hold all four titles by winning the scheduled 12-round contest between the two previously unbeaten boxers at the sold out Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Nebraska.

"I feel great. I feel like I hardly even fought," Crawford said.

The 29-year-old Crawford added the International Boxing Federation and World Boxing Association 140-pound titles to his World Boxing Council and World Boxing Organization belts, joining Bernard Hopkins and Jermain Taylor as the only four belt champions in modern boxing history.

Crawford used his superior hand speed and power to dominate every round as he knocked underdog Indongo down for the first time in the second round with a left to the side of the head.

He ended the fight just one round later by flooring the former Olympian with a body shot. Crawford missed with a right hook but then came back with a left to the upper chest that sent Indongo crumbling to the canvas.

"It feels like a dream come true. Belts matter," said Crawford, who improved to 32-0 with 23 knockouts. "I am the one who wants to be labelled the champ at 140."

Middleweight Taylor was the last undisputed boxing champ until his reign ended in 2006.

The 34-year-old Indongo, who is unfamiliar to most boxing fans in the US, landed very few punches in the three rounds as he dropped to 22-1 overall.

Indongo, who was born and raised in Namibia, competed in the 2008 Olympics.

Crawford won a close first round that served as a platform for the pair to feel each other out. Crawford went to work in the second, breaking his opponent down by easily getting the better of the exchanges in the centre of the ring.

Indongo came in as a heavy underdog and looked the part as he failed to connect on his wide looping punches and left himself open for Crawford's stinging lefts.

The third round knockout came as a surprise as Crawford missed with a right hook then landed what looked like a routine body shot.

"We been practising body shots all camp. Everything we practised in camp it came out in the fight," Crawford said.

Maybe Crawford can fight someone who isn't a cab driver next? His best win is STILL Viktor friggin Postol. I guess you can't blame him for the 140 division to be absolute junk right now. Well you can blame him…

Crawford is at a level above right now and he has just entered his prime. No one at 140 will touch him, and at 147 on Thurman and Spence give him issues. But even they wont beat him. His accuracy…
