Terence Crawford beat Alejandro Sanabria by TKO at 0:17 in round 6 of 10


Terence Crawford met Alejandro Sanabria in the center of the ring to begin the sixth round, threw one left hook and claimed his 21st professional victory via sixth-round technical knockout.

Crawford, of Omaha, Nebraska, looked comfortable throughout despite taking some solid punches from the unheralded, but heavy-handed Sanabria. A combination two minutes into the third round from Crawford momentarily hurt Sanabria. Crawford piled up rounds and by the end of the fifth was landing with frequent power combinations.

The end came just after the bell rang to begin the sixth round. Crawford came forward and threw a single left hook which caught Sanabria flush on the jaw and sent the Mexican down headfirst and into a forward roll. Sanabria made it to his feet at the count of seven, but staggered, which led the referee to wave an end to the bout.
