There was a lot to take in during my visit to Omaha, NE this past weekend. In the main event inside of the CHI Health Center, we witnessed one of the sport’s top fighters, WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford, overcome a spirited effort from Jose Benavidez Jr. before stopping him in the 12th round on ESPN’s airwaves.

Crawford (34-0, 25 KO’s) had some tough moments during the first half of the fight against Benavidez (27-0, 18 KO’s), but he stay composed and changed the momentum of the fight following round six. Crawford began to counter Benavidez much easier, and a big uppercut from the 31-year old champion registered the fight’s only knockdown in the 12th. Crawford jumped on Benavidez moments later, hammering him accurate shots, and the fight was waived off.

Earlier tonight, inside of the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nev., former world champion Jose Benavidez Jr. needed just one minute and 24 seconds to knock out previously undefeated Frank Rojas on the Terence Crawford vs. Jeff Horn undercard.

Benavidez landed a big right hand and followed it up with a short shot to the liver that had Rojas down and out before their scheduled 10-round match could get rolling. Referee Vic Drakulich wisely waved the contest off.
