Terence Crawford: Knocking Hank Lundy Out Was Real Satisfying

By Victor Salazar

New York, NY- Omaha was definitely well represented in New York last Saturday night when Terence Crawford stopped Hank Lundy to retain his WBO junior welterweight world title in front over 5,000 people in a sold out Theatre at Madison Square Garden. Crawford delivered his promised knockout in his New York debut.

In the fifth round, Crawford knocked down Lundy with a left hand and as he beat the count of 8. Crawford then attacked in full blast and forced the referee to step in.

“He was going backwards and from the southpaw stance I caught him with a left that seemed to hurt him bad,” Crawford told “I seen I hurt him real bad so I jumped on him. I seen his legs real wobbly so I knew I had him.”


Crawford is not known for being a great starter but he said the first few rounds were more of a feeling out process and waiting for Lundy to open up, which he did.

“I was just feeling him out,” Crawford said. “He came out fast. He came out looping his shots which we knew he was. Sometimes I would drop my left hand to invite him in but we capitalized on that just like we game planed for. My corner just told me to be relaxed, keep my jab going and keep my hands up.

Crawford was satisfied with the end result especially after weeks of trash talking from Lundy in the lead up to the fight.

It’s real satisfying because of all the talking and hype before the fight,” stated Crawford. “I was really happy because I got my respect and got the job done and now we are up to the next.”

Asked if he felt a showing like this proves he can draw outside of his native Omaha, Nebraska, Crawford said, “You see the crowd and you see the Crawford crowd, everyone was here for me, we put on a good show.”

[B][FONT="Arial"][COLOR="Blue"]I'll go out on a limb here and say that now we've seen the presumptuous Crawford, which in many cases signals the beginning of a mild to severe downfall. First of all, it was a TKO, not a flat out…

[QUOTE=GalaxyKnuckles;16514205]It was a good knockout but Crawford's tenure at 140 has been underwhelming. To TC's credit 140 is a bit top heavy right now so not a ton of options there outside of a unification. Postol or Broner should be…
