OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) - Terence Crawford defended his WBO World Title Saturday night with his TKO win over Jose Benavidez in the 12th round.
Crawford and Benavidez went back-and-forth, but the big one came with a 12th round knockdown for the champ. Shortly after, the referee called a stoppage to the fight.
Crawford first earned the belt back in June when he defeated Jeff Horn by TKO in the 9th round back in June. Crawford improves to 34-0 with 25 KO's after tonight's win.
Omaha-native Steve "So Cold" Nelson also remained undefeated after his fourth-round knock out of Oscar Riojas earlier in the night.
