Future 'unlimited' for Crawford after commanding Horn defeat

He also became only the fifth boxer to claim a WBO championship belt in three weight divisions.
Horn relaxed last night playing poker with his corner team knowing the stakes are huge today and that Crawford has turned into something like the cartoon villain Nasty Canasta. By the third round, Crawford was punishing the Aussie with vicious power shots. The WBO champion almost went down at the bell to end the eighth. Striking with extraordinary speed and, eventually, precision, he landed 155 punches to 58 - a massive margin - and over the final two rounds connected with 47 of 77 power shots as Horn began to wilt.
"He's the bigger, stronger guy, I'm the smaller guy, remember?" I think there was some tricks up the sleeves for this one.
I've seen him knocked down and hurt and roar back to victory. It's the highest praise I can give a fighter, a welterweight, that he reminds me of Sugar Ray Leonard.
Horn created boxing history last July on one of the greatest ever days in Queensland sport history when he rode a tide of emotion to win the World Boxing Organisation welterweight title from Pacquiao before more than 51,000 people at Suncorp Stadium. Horn landed just 6.4 punches per round. Never was Horn (18-1-1) on the verge of winning a round.
"He was hard to tag, and he just kept me guessing", Horn said.
"He's a classy fighter, hopefully he shows some humility". Moreover, Crawford was a lightweight world titleholder in 2014. He defend his belt twice in Omaha later than year, knocking out previously unbeaten Yuriorkis Gamboa in a star-making performance before dominating top-ranked challenger Raymundo Beltran to become the lineal champion at 135 pounds.

But the South Carolina Republican said Trump would face opposition to any move to withdraw American forces from South Korea. North Korea has been an isolated nation since it first divided from South Korea after the end of World War II in 1945.
There will be no controversy this time over the decision for the WBO Welterweight title.
Crawford started in the southpaw stance from the first bell of the fight.
Horn's strength and conditioning coach Dundee Kim, a former Korean soldier, says he will carefully scrutinise Crawford's gloves to make sure that there are no irregularities in the stitching or protruding laces that can cut like a scalpel.
The two fighters were originally scheduled to meet April 14, but Crawford injured a hand in training, which resulted in the fight being postponed. Not only did Horn pull off an upset - and highly disputed - win, but he did it in prime time on ESPN in the US on a Saturday night as part of a new deal between Arum's Top Rank Promotions and the cable sports giant.
And Horn accused Crawford's promoter, which was also his co-promoter for this bout, of trickery with the scales after he initially failed to make 147 by a half-pound at Friday's official weigh-in.
One of the most interesting things about their 12-round, 147-pound fight is how the heavily favored Crawford will handle his move up from 140 pounds to the welterweight division. Now, he has a new weight class in which to prove it. "I thought there were some close rounds in there, and it was definitely a premature stoppage", Rushton said.
