Terence Crawford picks John Molina Jr. apart before finishing him in 8th
By: Bob Velin
Super lightweight champion Terence Crawford put on an exhibition of spectacular boxing and punching skills Saturday night in his hometown of Omaha, hitting his vastly overmatched opponent John Molina Jr. at will before finishing the challenger in the eighth round to retain his 140-pound belts.
Crawford (30-0, 21 KOs), picked Molina apart round after round with precision punching in this mismatch, changing his stance from orthodox to southpaw and back again throughout the fight as has become his custom. Molina, meanwhile, chased Crawford around the ring looking for the home-run punch, a tactic he had used with success at times during his career, As a result, he left himself open constantly for Crawford’s lightning-quick combinations, while landing a haymaker every now and then.
In the eighth round, Crawford decided it was time to end it and assaulted Molina in the corner, going to the head and body with a flurry, before referee Mark Nelson stepped in and stopped it at 2:32 of the round.
