Terence Crawford's 5th Round TKO Defeats Hank Lundy (Video)

If Terence Crawford does have any flaws as a boxer, Hank Lundy wasn’t the man to expose or test the reigning junior welterweight champion.

After losing his cool during the final stare down, the undefeated champion got the last laugh—literally—punishing “Hammerin'” Hank Lundy into an impressive 5th round TKO.

“Lundy came out with a good rhythm and came out strong, so it took me a little time to get my rhythm down before I could catch him and get rid of him,” Crawford said.

“He and I had gone back and forth on Twitter for like a year. I just wanted to shut him up for good.”

Crawford took exception with a lot of the stuff Lundy was saying, even telling me during an interview earlier in the week that he “really didn’t like” Lundy at all.

After taking the first round to figure the unorthodox Lundy, Crawford returned for round two with a southpaw stance, distance and a stifling jab that erased any shot Hank had at the upset.

Lundy started the fifth round out aggressive, and then the walls crashed in after a double jab and a crushing left that sent Hank staggering. 

Crawford closed in a fashion that only Broadway could appreciate, battering Lundy until the referee stepped in before standing over the battered opponent who was vanquished 2 minutes and 9 seconds into the round.

“He caught me with a good shot, hit me on the top of the head and knocked my equilibrium off,” Lundy said afterward. “I couldn’t recover.”

Crawford landed 49 of 84 power shots, according to CompuBox, while landing 40 of 163 jabs.

This was Bud’s second defense of the junior welterweight world title, after he beat Dierry Jean in October.

“I told everyone I got power in both hands, and with the boxing ability that I have, it’s going to take me a long way in this game,” Crawford said.

Now 28-0 with 20 KOs, Crawford will continue to rise up the pound-for-pound list while trying to land quality opponents or the elite fighters in his division.

“I never duck anyone and I’ll fight anybody,” Crawford said. “My manager will make the fights happen, and I will train and fight.”

Top Rank honcho Bob Arum told ESPN.com that Crawford would next fight in June or July, probably at the Forum in Inglewood, California.
