Last Saturday night, Terence Crawford (28-0, 20 KO’s) reiterated the fact that he is one of the worlds top fighters, no matter what weight class he is in.  “Bud” Crawford defeated “Hammering” Hank Lundy (26-6-1, 13 KO’s) with a TKO in the 5th round of their fight.  Crawford fought nearly the entire fight in a southpaw stance, which he uses to confuse his opponents.  He is truly one of the all time greats, in the fact that he can fight left handed or right handed equally as good.  Crawford’s brilliance and ring IQ were on display, as he took apart the charging and overly aggressive Lundy, in relatively easy fashion.

Lundy started off very strong, pressuring Crawford immensely in the first round, which he won.  He landed a couple of nice punches in the 1st, but just like always, Crawford would adjust.  Crawford would win the second round, and the third.  Lundy had no answer for Crawford, and he even tried switching to southpaw in the 4th.  Crawford would continue to pick Lundy apart, and in the 5th round the end would come.  After a nice exchange in the 5th, Crawford would land a huge straight left that wobbled Lundy, and he would never recover.  Crawford would continue to pepper Lundy against the ropes, finally kicking him down with another left.  With blood trickling form his right eye, Lundy would answer the refs count and get up.  Crawford was right back on him in the corners swinging for the fences, and landed a huge left followed by a right, that would put an end to the fight.  Crawford ended up landing 58% of his power punches, and that usually spells victory.

In the co-feature, up and coming star Felix Verdejo defeated William Silva via unanimous decision.  Verdejo was too much for Silva to handle, and would not let Silva turn the fight ugly.  Verdejo displayed excellent boxing ability, and took Silva apart from a range that only he was comfortable in.  Verdejo won virtually every round, and stays undefeated.  Verdejo improves to 20-0-0 (14 KO’s), while Silva suffers his first career loss and goes to 22-1-0 (13 KO’s).
