Terence Crawford pushed his unbeaten streak to 19 with a sixth-round technical knockout over 35-year-old Sidney Siqueira of Brazil.
Crawford, who fought much of the fight as a southpaw, began to gain steam in the third and fourth rounds with combinations behind double and triple jabs and good work both upstairs and to the body. By the end of the fifth, he was punching from angles, evading most of the Brazilian's attack, and was sticking Siqueira with clean shots.
A right hand with 24 seconds left in the sixth round hurt Siqueira and sent him backing into the ropes. A follow-up barrage, capped with a big left hand, put Siquiera flat on his back at 2:42. Without counting, veteran referee Robert Byrd waved an end to the fight.
It was the fourth knockout loss of Siqueira's professional career and Crawford's 12th knockout win in his last 13 fights.
