Watch the highlights of Terence Crawford’s superb victory over Julius Indongo in the Top Rank on ESPN main event.

All of boxing’s major 140-pound championship belts belong to Nebraska’s Terence Crawford (32-0, 23 KOs), who defended his WBO and WBC titles whilst simultaneously taking the IBF and WBA straps away from Namibia’s Julius Indongo (22-1, 11 KOs). Crawford made sure Indongo wouldn’t pull off yet another upset win in enemy territory, as he knocked him down in round 2, then knocked him out with a wicked body shot in round 3.

Crawford is a special talent and he continues to rack up the finishes against high-level opposition. Can he become a real top-drawing attraction outside of his home state? That remains to be seen. Otherwise, there’s no denying that Crawford is one of the best pound-for-pound boxers on the planet.

Round 3: Indongo seems gunshy here, not committing himself to the punches as he comes in, undoubtedly to avoid getting countered again. And out of nowhere, Crawford BURIES Indongo with a bodyshot. He’s down, and he is not getting up! Terence Crawford is the undisputed champion!
