The punch stats for Terence Crawford’s epic win over Errol Spence Jr this past weekend have confirmed Crawford’s complete domination at the T-Mobile Arena, not that it was in any doubt.
As per CompuBox, the Nebraska man landed 87 jabs throughout the nine rounds – the most any opponent, including those who made it to the final bell, has ever landed on Spence.
‘Bud’s power punching statistics are even more impressive. He landed with a jaw dropping 60% of them, confirming his status as the most accurate and cerebral fighter in the sport.
He landed almost double the amount of total shots Spence did [185 to 96] despite throwing over 100 punches less than ‘The Truth.’
Crawford spent the entire fight in the southpaw stance, dominating one of the best ‘lefties’ in the sport at their own game. Spence was clearly thrown by his opponent, landing just 11% of his near 300 jabs thrown.
It remains unclear what Crawford’s next move will be, with any potential fight depending on whether or not Spence decides to activate his contractual rematch clause
Spence has not tried to hide the fact that welterweight is a tough weight cut for him, and would prefer a rematch to take place at 154lbs. However, the ball now firmly rests in the court of newly crowned undisputed champion Crawford.
So dominant was the 35 year old in Las Vegas that a rematch could prove to be a difficult sell, regardless of what weight it takes place at.
Now the first man in the four belt era to be undisputed champion at two different weight divisions, there are few who would deny Crawford his place as pound for pound number one.
