World Weekend Boxing Roundup: Crawford, Mathysse, Fonfara, Mathews

By Wellington Amadulu April 19th, 2015 All Boxing Results

Lots of big fights last evening and we kick off this report in the US, at University Of Texas Arena in Arlington where the vacant WBO light welter belt was at stake.

Facing off were former WBO lightweight king Terence Crawford and NABF/NABO light welter strapholder Thomas Dulorme in an intriguing matchup.

Crawford was making his first appearance at 140 pounds after no longer being able to make the lightweight limit while Dulorme had moved down from the welterweight class last year.

The question was could Crawford make the jump in to a new division against a top opponent in an event of the highest profile? That answer proved to be an emphatic "yes".

Once the bell rang, Dulorme was aggressive, using his size advantage to pressure Crawford behind a series of overhand rights, most of which completely missed the target.

Crawford was patient, content to use his reaction-based defense and quick footwork to avoid the vast majority of Dulorme's efforts while studying the lanky Puerto Rican.

Gradually, Crawford began to time his adversary and the former lightweight champ's counters were accurate and effective. Dulorme continued to try and solve the switch-hitting style of Crawford but without much success.

By the sixth round, Crawford had Dulorme figured out and moved in for the kill as a flush right cross to the jaw dropped Dulorme hard to the canvas. More...
