Terence Crawford controlled José Benavidez the entire fight, landing a devastating knockdown in the 12th round, with Benavidez having no answer when he gets up, resulting in a TKO victory.
This was more of a stay-busy fight for Crawford but he was eager to take the bout after being called out by Benavidez, who is only the 10th-ranked 147-pounder by the WBO.
There had been bad blood in the build-up, which culminated in Crawford trying to punch Benavidez Jr at Friday's weigh-in.
To his credit, Benavidez fought through a knee injury suffered from a 2016 late night shooting where he was targeted while walking his dog and was able to counter well through the first six rounds. At various times in the fight, Crawford was able to effectively switch up his stance and land numerous shots to the body. The fighters' camps traded barbs at a media workout Wednesday and the bickering continued Thursday at a news conference.
