  • ESPN Boxing: Crawford vs. Indongo Results

Terence Crawford produced a supreme performance to become the undisputed super-lightweight champion, while Dillian Whyte edged closer to a world title shot.

Another look at the stoppage can be seen below. We are awaiting the announcement of his rematch "Down Under' against Jeff Horn, and if the Filipino star can negate the challenge of the WBO welterweight champion, Crawford vs Pacquiao starts making sense again". Sound off in the comments section below with your thoughts.

Indongo, 34, quickly got up and fought back for the remainder of the round, but he was being overpowered by the American.

The 29 year-old battered Julius Indongo over three rounds to become a five-belt ruler at the 140 limit, defending his WBO, WBC and Ring Magazine titles plus adding the WBA and IBF versions to his haul.

As of about 8.30am the department was "not aware" of any other confirmed cases of Irish citizens caught up in the terror attacks. The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it was carried out by " soldiers of the Islamic State ".

Crawford is now likely to move up to welterweight and fight the victor of the rematch between WBO champion Jeff Horn and former titleholder Manny Pacquiao. Crawford also landed a few lead rights to the body in the first as well, then landed another in the second that was followed by a left hand that dropped Indongo for the first time. "It's been a rough, tough camp and everything we worked on today in camp came out in the fight". Crawford cautious of Indongo's left.

Crawford still has time on his side and can afford to wait for the victor of this likely rematch, however an interim fight in the mean time would be beneficial in adjusting to the new weight at 147lbs.

Speaking after the fight, a jubilant Crawford said: "This is a dream come true". Crawford has 31 victories in 31 fights and is widely considered to be one of the best boxers in the world.

Having achieved all he can at 140lbs, the two-weight world champion will likely move up in weight to the welterweight division and many would back him to find further success.
