Photos: Crawford With Explosive Stoppage of Gamboa

Terence Crawford (24-0, 17KOs) stopped Yuriorkis Gamboa (23-1, 16KOs) 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. Photos by Chris Farina.

Size and weight was evident. I knew this would happen. Gamboa belongs to 126, 130 lbs.

Great fight from both men. Crawford is awesome, made this American very proud. Gamboa had no rust he was strong and sharp with guts but always gets sloppy after 5 rounds, I've noticed that for years. Gamboa , por favor…

Terence Crawford looked great last night after he started timing Gamboa! Very nice performance!
