On Saturday night, April 20, WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford successfully defended his title for a second time with a sixth round TKO over former champion Amir Khan. The fight, which took place on ESPN pay per view from Madison Square Garden in New York, may not have ended how Crawford wanted or expected, but his perfect record and lofty goals are still intact.

Crawford dropped Khan in the first round and had a commanding lead midway through. In frame six, an accidental low blow from Crawford put Khan down, with the British star and his corner electing not to continue, granting the champion with a TKO victory.

Crawford (35-0, 26 KO’s) will now look for bigger fights while Khan (33-5, 20 KO’s) goes back to the drawing board.
