Terence Crawford’s mother, family and friends were in attendance this past weekend in Las Vegas when ‘Bud’ stopped previous champion Jeff Horn inside of 9 rounds.
It was one of the best displays by a fighter moving up in weight in recent boxing memory.
A tactical masterclass against a game and brave Jeff Horn whom was ultimately outclassed by one of the best sweet science exponents in the world today in Crawford.
Yes, Terence Crawford has been winning deserved plaudits but none more so than from his own mother who was caught on camera in a great clip seconds after her son got the win:

Great stuff indeed.
The future looks very, very bright for Crawford who no doubt will look to engage one of the other champions at welterweight in the not too distant future.
A showdown between him and Errol Spence Jr in particular would be one that would really excite fans.
Spence boxes this weekend and you can bet your bottom dollar Crawford will be keeping a close eye on proceedings.
The two look to be boxing bit by bit at the moment, fight by fight, towards what could be one of the best fights in the sport today.
