In an astounding display of skill and determination, Terence Crawford secured a spectacular victory over Errol Spence Jr., knocking him out at 2:32 of the ninth round. This historic triumph not only earned Crawford the undisputed 147-pound championship but also made him the first man ever to capture all four major titles in a second division.
Initially perceived as a closely contested 50-50 matchup, the fight turned out to be a one-sided affair, as Crawford dominated Spence from the second round onwards. The first knockdown occurred in that round, followed by two more in Round 7, leaving Spence with little hope of turning the tide in his favor.
Crawford’s agility, strategic prowess, and overall brilliance in the ring were evident throughout the bout, making it appear as though he was effortlessly handling an opponent of lesser skill. This outstanding performance ranks among the greatest displays of recent years, especially given the respect and high regard Spence had prior to the fight, along with the immense stakes at play.
