Terence Crawford W TKO 4 Kell Brook
(WBO Welterweight Title)
Fight Notes: Referee stopped the fight after Brook taking a count after the ropes kept Brook up. Ref gave him a chance but Crawford unloaded as Brook reeled across the ring and the referee stopped the fight with him unable to defend himself. Time of the stoppage was 1:14 of round 4.
“Never in my career, nobody has ever done that to me in sparring or anything,” Brook said.
“It was one of them… I got caught with a shot I didn’t see. I’m gutted because nobody could’ve gotten me in better condition. I was bang on the limit. Maybe I could’ve been a bit more relaxed and loose and let the shots go.”
Bob Arum of Top Rank: “Terence Crawford showed, once again, why he is the best welterweight in the world. It was a dominating performance over a very good fighter in Kell Brook. Terence ranks up there with all the great welterweights I’ve promoted.”
Joshua Franco ND Andrew Moloney 2
(WBA Super Flyweight Title)
Fight Notes: Ref ruled accidental head but round 1 causing bad swelling to Franco. Fight stopped on the bell of the beginning of round 3, with the doctor advising to stop the fight. As four rounds were not completed the bout is a no decision. The decision was checked via replays for approx 30 min with the ND staying in place.
Andrew Moloney: “I hit him with a jab early in the first round … and I hit him another 50 times. That’s why his eye’s shut, not the head-butt. There’s not a head-butt. … I can’t believe they took this away from me. I trained my ass off for the last five months, I’ve been away from my family, and they just take it away from me like this.”
Bob Arum: ”They waited until the end of the fight and they kept with it to protect the referee who didn’t know what the hell he was doing.
”I am absolutely disgusted…I just want a fair adjudication, they made a mistake, the referee made a mistake. It’s clear, it’s not even close.”
