The undefeated Nebraskan is widely considered one of the best in the sport right now, and fought for the first time in 11 months in what was an impressive performance. Brook managed to win the first two rounds but lost the third and then was quickly stopped in the fourth, with Crawford unleashing and landing nine of 11 power shots to close the show.
Brook has suffered in recent years with injury after moving up to middleweight but returned to the welterweight division with what many believed was his career on the line. The fight headlined a busy card stacked full of American talent. Catch up on the live updates, scoring and analysis from the main event as well as full results from the night below.

“That’s boxing. The referee saw enough, I lost to the better man tonight. Even though he beat me, I can’t say anything. He has a good eye to land a shot. Nobody has ever done that to me in my career, not in sparring or anything. I’m gutted.”

“Errol Spence will try to avoid Terence Crawford as long as he can because he knows he can’t beat Terence Crawford.”

“I only caught him a couple times. Kell is a tremendous talent, he came, he tried. No excuses, he came off three wins and had his confidence up. He lost to the better man tonight.”

“I was just trying to gauge the distance, find my rhythm. I couldn’t get my shots off.”

What a finish
It was a short right hand that buzzed Brook, who fell into the ropes to save him falling down. Bud, one of the best finishers in the game, then closed the show in style.

Terence Crawford ends the fight in round four, landing combinations with Brook getting a standing count before he closes the show. Wow.

Crawford eye swelling
Crawford’s right eye is swelling up fast, will Brook target it now?

Round 3: Crawford 28-29 Brook
A close round but Crawford does well to close the space a bit more, and starts landing his combination punches. Brook doesn’t quite get his jab off the way he was in the first two.

Round 2: Crawford 18-20 Brook
Crawford switches from orthodox to southpaw to close the gap but Brook still does well, taking his time and picking off his opponent. Not much in it right now but I have it 2-0 Brook.
