American Terence Crawford retained his World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight belt by beating compatriot Shawn Porter by TKO in the 10th round on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Crawford, who ended up dancing with his family in the ring, is now 38-0 with 29 KOs and a 16-0 string defending world titles.
For his part, Porter now leaves his record at 31-4-1 and 17 before the limit.
The fight was stopped in the 10th round by Porter’s team, after the latter fell twice to the canvas to accurate shots from Crawford.
“It is not easy to face Porter. He did everything he should do, he is an excellent opponent. In the end I looked to take him down and I knew that could decide the fight,” Crawford said after the fight.
