Terence Crawford knocks out Shawn Porter twice in the tenth round before calling out Errol Spence.
TERENCE CRAWFORD became the first boxer to stop Shawn Porter in a title fight at the Michelob Ultra Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday.
Crawford successfully defended his WBO welterweight title by knocking out Porter twice in the tenth round before his father and trainer, Kenny Porter, pulled his son from the fight.
The American bruiser won his biggest fight of his career, extending his undefeated streak to 38 wins while also giving his opponent his first ever TKO loss.
Errol Spence Jr, the IBF and WBC champion, sat ringside but left during Porter’s demise, and Bud hinted that he was coming for him during his post-fight interview.
“I figured out in round one that I would win because I had the reach,” Crawford said.
“He tried to maul and push me back, but I pushed him back.”
“Shawn Porter is a good fighter, but I knew his father would intervene when I dropped him with the uppercut and then again.
“I’m going to fight whoever wants it next, and everyone knows who I’m talking about [Spence Jr].”

“I told him I love him; Shawn Porter is one of my best friends, and I never wanted to fight him.”
Porter received a cut above his eye in the third round after an unintentional clash of heads.
Crawford suffered an eye injury in the following round after colliding with his opponent again.
However, the 34-year-old was unable to avoid his ninth stoppage in a row.
