Jeff Horn's shock weigh-in fiasco

Jeff Horn's shock weigh-in fiasco

"Now I want all the champions at welterweight".

Horn is 30 and not likely to get much better - although he might get a bit smarter. Early on, he tagged Horn as the champion tried to charge his way in.

Crawford dominated Jeff Horn in NY on Saturday, earning a ninth-round stoppage to take the belt and insert himself in the conversation for top fights in an extremely intriguing welterweight division.

Crawford was the heavy favorite to win the bout, and was the stronger, more fundamentally-sound fighter through nine rounds. "You know, y'all didn't believe me and I was way stronger than him".

The fight wrapped up a insane week with Horn almost getting stripped of his title on the scales on June 8. "He got hit harder by Pacquiao". Horn took a standing eight count in the ninth after dropping to his knees - "slightly unbalanced", he said - and the end came quickly with referee Robert Byrd waving Crawford away with 27 seconds of the round remaining. A big left in the second round by Crawford got things going, while an impressive right cross to Horn's left temple in the third round showed his keen ability as a tactician.

Had he gone over the weight again he would have been stripped on the spot of his WBO welterweight title.

"I think they think I'm a bit mentally weaker than I actually am".

Though he never appeared frustrated, Horn couldn't find a rhythm against Crawford, who chuckled in the middle in the fourth, the same round he opened a small cut on Horn's left eyebrow. Such a fight would have no worldwide cachet so perhaps Arum's stable is still his best bet. Even when he managed to land some hard shots in the sixth Crawford met him with big body shots and a sizzling uppercut and rather than be intimidated by Horn's superior size and strength he was able to throw him around into the ropes. As a pro, every one of my fighters, I take them and check the official scales and make sure because all scales are different. "And that to me is a great, great compliment because I always thought that Leonard was the best. The future is unlimited".

Horn manhandled Pacquiao at times in their 12-rounder on his way to winning a controversial unanimous decision July 2 at Suncorp Stadium. With the win, it opened the door for Pedraza to challenge WBO lightweight world champion Ray Beltran in August.

America's Crawford, the former undisputed super lightweight world title holder, outclassed the Aussie who was defending the title he won in a huge upset of Manny Pacquiao in July of previous year in Brisbane.

Maybe stronger than anybody in the weight class. Punching angles, versatility and hand speed have been a pretty well-known part of the Crawford skillset for a long time.
