Crawford knocked out Avanesyan


Chi Health Center, Omaha, USA. In the main event of the show, local WBO superstar welterweight champion (up to 66.7 kg) Terence Crawford (39-0, 30 KOs) knocked out Russian challenger David Avanesyan (29-4-1, 17 KOs).

Underdog started the fight great, and Crawford was passive. The Russian delivered a right hook to the target in the first round, and in the second – a left side hook from a left-handed stance.

Around the 4th round, the favorite woke up. He worried Avanesyan with uppercuts and body shots. Fighters increasingly fought in infighting. In the 5th round, I had to take a break – Terence had problems with gloves.

The fight resumed and almost immediately ended with a brutal knockout. In the 6th three-minute period, Crawford countered with a left uppercut. Avanesyan was brought back to consciousness for a long time.

Crawford KO 6.

MMA legend Cristiana “Chris Cyborg” Justino (1-0, 0 KOs) from Brazil made her official boxing debut (and here is an unofficial fight) – in the first middleweight limit (up to 69.9 kg) she dropped, but was satisfied with a victory on points over American
Gabriella Holloway (0-3), which last entered the ring in 2016 (!).

Judges score: 40-35, 40-34 and 39-36.

Cyborg UD 4.
