Terence Crawford beat Errol Spence Jr via ninth round stoppage to become the undisputed welterweight champion and perhaps the best fighter in the world today.
Crawford flipped the script that it was a pick ’em fight by picking off Spence throughout, dropping him three times on the way to a referee’s stoppage that wasn’t a second too soon.
Naturally, big names from the sport had praise to give…

Talk about being the complete ‘package’, well Crawford is the entire ‘Store’. Macy’s, Walmart, Target. Costco. #SpenceCrawford

Throw in the towel. Think about whether or not you even want the rematch. But it’s time to be humble

Crawford by TKO. I expected a decision win by him. I did NOT expect an absolute ass-whipping! @terencecrawford destroyed @ErrolSpenceJr. I take no pleasure in saying that. Love’em both. But it’s just the truth. Haven’t seen this kind of whipping since Trinidad destroyed Joppy.…
