Terence Crawford Finishes Amir Khan In The Sixth Round Following Low Blow TKO

Last night WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford (35-0, 26 KOs) defended his title after beating former WBA and IBF light-welterweight champion Amir Khan (33-5, 20 KO) in an unsatisfying manner that not everyone was expecting.

Amir Khan took a short break for recovery, however, after consulting with his corner he declared not to continue with the match and Crawford awarded with a TKO win.

“I would never quit,” Khan insisted as he recounted the final sequence, at times made to sound as if he was trying to convince himself. “I would rather get knocked out. I’m one of them fighters who’d rather get knocked out in fights. I have been knocked out because I’ve tried to win fights …”
