"Terence would just get that odd shot, just that little bit more".

Horn expects his cut-man Stephen Edwards to be working overtime as the thinly-padded gloves cause more cuts and abrasions than the more popular gloves with foam padding.

The unbeaten Crawford (33-0, 24 KO's), 30, one of boxing's finest pound-for-pound performers, made a splash in his welterweight debut by dismantling Jeff Horn before 8,112 fans Saturday at MGM Grand in Las Vegas in an utterly one-sided ninth-round TKO victory to become a three-division world champion.

Speaking at the post-fight media conference, Arum said of Crawford: "His future is unlimited".

"He's the bigger, stronger guy, I'm the smaller guy, remember?"

When asked what he wanted to tell the other opponents in the division, Crawford was adamant about his arrival in the Welterweight division. It was only a matter of time at this point, and soon referee Robert Byrd wisely and mercifully stopped the fight after Crawford unleashed a volley of punches on an increasingly helpless Jeff Horn.

Mattis not surprised by Trump's call to end military exercises: Pentagon
Of the almost 7,800 US troops unaccounted for from the war, about 5,300 were lost in North Korea. Trump's statement was portrayed by critics as an unreciprocated concession.

"But he's got to do it better than what he done to Pacquiao". Maybe I was a bit predictable.

Only a month ago the boxing world was convinced that Vasily Lomachenko was the best fighter in the world, the pound-for-pound king who would reign unrivaled as the best prizefighter in the world for years to come.

When Horn, 30, bulled Crawford to the ropes in the sixth round, Crawford got away after landing a left uppercut that stunned Horn.

Crawford's skills came to life in the eighth round, as he went upstairs-downstairs near the end of the round, working the head and the body before closing the round with a monster right that staggered Horn. "We knew what we were up against, we dealt with bigger, stronger, faster sparring partners in training camp that were relentless and didn't back up, which helped me prepare for tonight", said Crawford. "And that to me is a great, great compliment because I always thought that Leonard was the best".

The Aussie contingent is ready for their first fight of the day hours before the World Boxing Organization title bout kicks off tomorrow morning (Aust time) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena before an expected crowd of 10,000. Last August, the Omahan became the third undisputed champion in the four-belt era when he KO'd fellow unified titlist Julius Indongo in Lincoln.

Horn created boxing history last July on one of the greatest ever days in Queensland sport history when he rode a tide of emotion to win the World Boxing Organisation welterweight title from Pacquiao before more than 51,000 people at Suncorp Stadium.
