Terence Crawford elevated to WBA Super Champion.

 

American Terence Crawford beat Namibian Julius Indongo by knockout to become the new World Boxing Association Super Lightweight Champion and take over the world’s most important boxing belts.

The first round was even. Crawford started with a good blow to Indongo’s face. However, the Namibian boxer recovered and managed to improve the actions to make the round even.

In the second round, “Blue Machine” started to suffer and was knocked down after receiving a left punch to the face. Crawford continued his attack, but the Namibian managed to overcome the round. Later, in the third round, the American continued his attack and ended the fight with a good hook to the liver.

Thus, Terence Crawford, on Saturday night in Nebraska, United States, made history by becoming the second boxer to hold the WBA, WBC, WBO and IBF belts. The first to do so was the mythical Bernard Hopkins and, in female boxing, Cecilia Braekhus also owns the 4 belts.

Now Crawford has a record of 32 wins and 23 KOs.
