Terence Crawford scores 3rd-round KO of Julius Indongo

By Mike Coppinger

LINCOLN, Neb. — Terence Crawford jumped up and down in the corner like a kid on Christmas Day as the seconds rolled by.

Six. Seven. Eight. Nine. 10.

Ten seconds to history. 10 seconds to claim all the belts. 10 seconds to become undisputed junior welterweight champion.

Julius Indongo writhed around in pain with no hope of beating referee Jack Reiss’ count. The left hook that connected square with his liver was debilitating. There would be no recuperation. It was all over at 1:38 of Round 3.

Crawford became the first man to unify all four sanctioning body belts since Bernard Hopkins’ body knockout of Oscar De La Hoya in 2004 on Saturday before a hometown crowd of 12,121 at Pinnacle Bank Arena on ESPN.

Indongo: I lost to clearly one of the best

By karlfreitag

By Bill Green

Julius Indongo: This is part of the sport. Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. The knockout came unexpected. My plan was to start off slow and pick up the pace. Maybe it wasn’t the right plan. I didn’t lose to just anyone. I lost to clearly one of the best. I will be back.

Promoter Eddie Hearn: Julius has had an amazing year. He is the type of person and fighter that will come back from this loss.

[Will he return this year or take some time off?] Everyone will have a say in this decision. He has been in the U.S. for three weeks away from family. He may take some time off, but I assure you he will rebound.
