Unbeaten lightweight Terance Crawford (21-0, 16 KOs) of Omaha, Nebraska has now had two consecutive impressive performances on HBO this year. In March he defeated Amir Khan-conqueror Breidis Prescott and last Saturday he stopped highly regarded Alejandro Sanabria. “I give myself a 6 or 7 on a scale from 1 to 10, that is how I grade my performance,” Crawford told “I got caught with some unnecessary shots in this fight. I felt bigger and stronger.”


Top Rank has big plans for the 25-year-old, with a world title shot planned more sooner than later. “The future is bright, the sky is the limit and I’m just blessed to be here,” Crawford told us.
