It's been a long hard struggle for Terence Crawford, from a town in which boxing is not know for, to produce one of the world's newest and exciting boxer. The reigning UK champion Ricky Burns, accepted the fight from Crawford, and as the fight started, it was clear the confidence was with Crwaford. With 20 seconds left in the first round, he switch to southpaw and from the forth round on, it was a whitewash. Crawford used great upper body movement, and it was the body work that broke down Burns and had him on the ropes most of the rounds.
With great distance Crawford brought the fight to Burns without give up that real estate in the ring and made Burns reach, and get off balance. The jab was a constant problem for Burns also, he couldn't get the range and now it's back to the drawing boards for him, and for Crawford, Omaha's first world champion, the sky's the limit.
