  Crawford Stops Horn & Takes WBO 147 Pound Title

By William Trillo


Terrance Bud Crawford (33-0, 24 KOs) was too much for Jeff Horn (18-1-1, 12 KOs) in this one sided battle for Horns belt. Crawford was in complete command throughout the night and had little trouble as he stopped Horn in the 9th round after a barrage of unanswered punched forced the ref to bring a halt to the bout at the 2:33 mark.

Crawford not only showed he belonged in the welterweight division but proved to have the power and skill to keep up with any of the elite fighters in the division.

Horn was game but as expected he was no match for the likes of a fighter the caliber of Crawford. Look for Bud to become a dominant force in the talented welterweight mix.

Jose Pedraza (24-1, 12 KOs) bloodied his foe Antonio Mora on his way to a decisive 10 round decision. Pedraza put a gash on Moras nose early and kept up the onslaught to take a decision on all cards 96-94. With the win Pedraza grabbed the WBO Latino Lightweight title.

In a WBA welterweight title eliminator Jose Benavidez (27-0, 18 KOs) need little time to stop Frank Rojas (22-1, 21 KOs). With two sharp right hands Rojas went down for the count at the 1:24 mark of round one.

Maxim Dadashev (11-0, 10 KOs) was impressive in his victory over former world title contender Darleys Perez (33-4-2, 21 KOs). Dadashev was in complete control of the fight and one thudding blow to the top of Perez head in round 10 brought a halt to the action at the 1:49 mark. For his efforts Dadashev took home the NABF Jr. Welterweight belt.

In a lack luster affair Light Heavyweight Steve Nelson (11-0, 8 KOs) stopped Dashon Webster (10-2, 6 KOs) at the 46 second mark of round 6.

David Kamisky (2-0, 1 KO) made quick work of Trevor Lavin (1-1, 1 KO) in a lopsided middleweight bout. Kamisky dropped and stopped Lavin at the 1:12 mark of round 2.
