sofw4re.wordpress.com. WBO titleholder Terence Crawford scored a near-shutout unanimous decision victory over No. 2-rated Raymundo Beltran at the CenturyLink Arena in Crawford’s native Omaha, Nebraska. Crawford out-landed Beltran, 243-to-96 in overall punches, including 150-to-23 in jabs. Crawford landed 141 shots to the left side of Beltran’s head and 206 total blows to the head. A rugged 33-year-old, Beltran (29-7-1, 17 knockouts) was 4-0-1 in his previous five fights. In facing Beltran at the CenturyLink, the 27-year-old Crawford (25-0, 17 KOs) was returning to the site where he scored four knockdowns on the way to June’s come-from-behind ninth-round stoppage victory over former featherweight beltholder Yuriorkis Gamboa, a previously unbeaten fighter.
Crawford defeated Gamboa before 10,943 of the former’s partisan fans as a followup to his unanimous decision that dethroned Ricky Burns for the WBO belt on Burns’ turf in Glasgow, Scotland, in March. Prior to facing Crawford, Burns had battled to a controversial draw with Beltran, who floored Burns in the eighth round in Glasgow in September 2013. Burns’ jaw was badly broken against Beltran, requiring the surgical implantation of titanium plates in advance of the loss to Crawford.
