Terence Crawford Knocks Out Julius Indongo To Become Undisputed Junior Welterweight Champion

The clock may be ticking for Indongo, 34, but he should be fresh enough to have another run at a world championship (so long as the man defending it isn't named Crawford). The main card airs live at 10 p.m. ET on ESPN, SKY (United Kingdom), RPC Channel 4 (Panama), and Super Channel (Canada).

Terence "Bud" Crawford claimed another victory in the ring Saturday night with a knockout of Julius Indongo in the third round at Pinnacle Bank Arena.

Crawford landed the bout's first meaningful punch, a counter left hand, about a minute into the first round and looked more comfortable than the frenetic Indongo, who was bolting in and out but not connecting on any shots.

Indongo, however, was no match for the pound for pound rated Crawford, who extended his professional record to 32-0 (23) with yet another standout performance.

It's a flip of a coin for second place with Gennady Golovkin, but Crawford is still missing that massive name on his resume which could elavate him above the superlative "S.O.G".

Heather Heyer was killed when a auto drove into a crowd of counter-protesters at the rally on August 12. Hunt, working for GQ magazine, relates this account of the white supremacist protest on Friday night.

Already at the start of a unification bout Crawford managed to seriously surprise, Indongo - American stood up to stand right where a Lefty from Namibia was not ready.

Crawford joined Taylor and Hopkins as the only boxers to own four recognized titles simultaneiously since the WBO became a recognized sanctioning organization in the 1990s.

Indongo (22-1, 11 knockouts) made his rise in his weight division in less than a year after winning bouts in Russian Federation and Scotland.

Light heavyweight contender Oleksandr Gvozdyk (14-0, 12 KOs) of Ukraine stopped Craig Baker (17-2, 13 KOs) of Baytown, Texas, at 2:40 of the sixth round.

Other winners on the undercard included former 140-pound title challenger Mike Alvarado (KO-4 Sidney Siqueria), two-time heavyweight challenger Bryant Jennings (TKO-2 Daniel Martz), highly-regarded British-based heavyweight Dillian Whyte (TKO-3 Malcolm Tann) and prospects Mike Reed (Robert Frankel), Steve Nelson (UD-6 Cesar Ruiz) and Kevin Ventura (KO-3 Baltazar Ramirez).
