In a clash that will not be forgotten soon, Terence Crawford records a knockout win against Errol Spence to become undisputed welterweight champion.
At the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas early on Sunday, July 30, Terence "Bud" Crawford improved his perfect record to 40-0 while handing Errol Spence Jr. his first loss.
With his steady one-step advantage against Spence and near-perfect game plan execution, Crawford put on an absolutely exceptional performance.
By being the far busier fighter and creating combinations off of his jab, Spence won the opening round.
While gathering information and moving on to the second round, Crawford didn't respond very much.
Crawford steps up against Spence to become undisputed
Billed as the fight of the year, Crawford vs Spence was a spectacle that drew big names such as Mike Tyson, Floyd Mayweather, and other greats to attend.

As the fight moved through the opening rounds, Crawford stepped up the tempo as his hand speed and precision proved to be strengths.
