R1- As they feel eachother out, Crawford is obviously being patient, while Khan is the one pushing the pace, throwing occassional flurries and double jabs. Just as it seems that Khan is about to edge the round off of output alone, Crawford catches him coming in with a beautiful short overhand right that takes Khan’s legs away, just before smoothly pivoting to his right side and dropping him with a left hook, landing another right to the top of the head on the way down. Obviously hurt, Khan goes on retreat mode for the closing moments, just to get wobbled three more times by right hands. Another overhand right from Crawford a few seconds before the bell

R2- Crawford is still searching for a moment to follow up on his momentum, while Khan is trying to get his way back into the fight. He’s able to do so it seems, landing a few shots between with his flurries, but Crawford is still catching him with counters, and obviously the harder punches. A definite swing round, but I mildly edge Khan for his use of the jab.

R3- Upon being caught by a couple of 1-2’s from Khan at the start, Crawford switches southpaw. This allows him to take Khan’s jab away, and disrupt Khan by flicking his own. It also allows Crawford to land check hooks and a few short shots through the incomplete guard of Khan. The round ends with Crawford landing a 1-2 that certainly gets Khan’s attention.

R4- The interview from BoMac in the corner is funny. Just as Khan tries to gain momentum and come in with combinations, Crawford completely reverses it by catching him in close with hooks to the body. The big shots that Crawford is consistently digging to the body get Khan on his bike several times, and even doubling over at one point. These shots are clearly bothering Khan, who tries to insist that they are lowblows to no avail. Crawford is also impressively doubling his body shots to the head at times, effectively countering Khan in every exchange. Good round for Crawford.

R5- Khan tries to taunt Crawford (who has been taunting him all night) after digesting two pairs of hooks. This backfires, as Crawford starts to pick off shots to the body and head of Khan to great success. Khan puts some punches of his own together in the last minute, but Crawford definitely outscored and outgunned him.

R6- The grit that Khan displayed in the last round gets thrown out the window. Not much happens before Crawford lands an accidental shot to his thigh, which was obviously due to Khan pulling his head down. I’m not denying the fact that the punch hurt, but I do think Khan flopped due to the momentum that Crawford was building. Overall, I think Khan quit. I didn’t hear him directly say that he wanted out, but I never heard him deny it either. One cannot deny the fact that at the end of the day, Virgil Hunter did not like seeing what was being done to his fighter, hence why he ultimately did what he did by having the fight stopped. Albeit not in the best fashion, Crawford adds another lopsided win and another good name to his resume. While Khan was definitely over the hill at this point, Crawford becoming the first to ever outclass him and so clearly at that before the stoppage is an impressive feat. Crawford arguably shut Khan out, and I have no doubt in my mind that even on Khan’s best day, he’d stop him 10 times out of 10. Also, the end result ultimately saved Khan from suffering more punishment, and a cleaner, more damaging stoppage.
