R1- Coming out as a southpaw to mirror the stance of Diaz, Crawford immediately means business, popping double and triple jabs through his guard and sneaking in numerous looping lefts around his guard. The times where Diaz attempts to open up, he is wild and swinging for the fences, but is unable to close the gap.

R2- Diaz is taking more chances this time around, but Crawford is able to maneuver his way past most of his shots. The jab of Crawford is still the most effective aspect of the round, but he pinpoints several lefts to the head. We also see Crawford do several physically frustrating things to Diaz, like push him down early on and walk him into the ropes during some of the clinches. The two stare at and taunt eachother after the bell.

R3- Crawford increases his output a bit, thus decreasing Diaz’ in return. As he keeps Diaz walking into 1-2 combos, which he sometimes even throws in creative angles, he is also getting in long uppercuts from both hands. The defense of Bud is on point too, as he is able to sway back and avoid or roll with most of Diaz’ shots.

R4- The right eye of Diaz is swelling up, so of course Crawford continues to pop it with the right jab. Using various angles, Crawford is able to get in several short hooks and uppercuts through the guard of Diaz. Keeping his left glove high and head on a swivel, he is dodging most of Diaz’ shots and preventing him from working in the clinch when one occurs. With Crawford having an easier time landing as the fight goes on, the exact opposite can be said for Diaz.

R5- Still unable to cut off Crawford or maintain any momentum at all, Diaz shows frustration, as he tries to taunt Crawford late to no avail. The reasoning begind his frustration is understandable though, as he is unable to close unless Crawford is not jabbing. When he does manage to get in his preferred range, Crawford walks him into check hooks and uppercuts.

R6- Diaz comes out with his face covered in vaseline, especially his eye. This does not prevent Crawford from landing several jabs, hooks and uppercuts to his face at will. Still mad, we see Diaz try to wave Crawford on. Hard to imagine Crawford helped settle his frustration by ignoring his plea, just to later start humorously tapping him with his right glove moments after.

R7- As Diaz starts throwing haymakers out the gate, Crawford is able to put a stop to him over and over by simply clinching him and pushing him into the ropes. The uppercuts to the head and body from Crawford are landing at will and of course the ineffective aggression of Diaz is paving the way for some counter-punches. Bud clowns and taunts Diaz in several ways during the last 30 seconds, and it is honestly hilarious.

R8- They start the round off with their hands dropped, trying to lure the other into doing something. Afterwards, Diaz runs into a series of shots from the outside, eventually allowing Crawford to turn him into the ropes, where he looks completely useless. Just by feinting alone, Crawford is preventing him from doing anything. A left hook to the body seems to bother Diaz late, but Crawford does not get much time to capitalize. Crawford flashes his evil smile after the bell. Other unified champ at the time, Julius Indingo is shown in between rounds. Unknowing to him, he’d be Crawford’s next victim, and an even easier night for him overall than Diaz was.

R9- The right eye of Diaz is really looking bad. His strategy throughout seems simple- retreat to the ropes, cover up, eventually try to back Crawford up with a flurry, and then retreat to another spot on the ropes. The combinations of Diaz are unable to hit the target, as Crawford uses a constant tapping jab to sneak short overhand lefts around Diaz’ guard as he pleases. Diaz finally draws Crawford into an exchange at the end, only to take a big right hook to the head. With the ref holding him back after, his frustration is as apparent as ever.

R10- Beaten up, embarrassed, and outclassed, Diaz lays on the ropes throughout, shelled up. This does not prevent Crawford from landing several rapid right hooks and looping rights clean to his head from around the guard. Like a badass, Crawford taunts Diaz’ corner while walking their fighter down, indicating that he has no chance in cocky fashion. He soon after does some more crowd-pleasing antics by repeatedly tapping his glove on Diaz’ head. At the end, Diaz goes for one hail mary exchange, only to take a hard double left uppercut-right hook-left hand combination. Saving him from humiliation and torture, the corner of Diaz mercifully pulls him out of the fight. A masterful performance from a true professor in the ring. In what is arguably his best performance to date, Terence Crawford was really akin to Bernard Hopkins, as he outclassed his opponent, embarrassed and frustrated him with physical and mental tricks, prevented him from getting any rhythm going, all the while completely beating him up. Plus, he made an actual good fighter look below average, and make it so that he would be completely ruined, never to be good again after this fight.
