Fighting Pride of Omaha Terence Crawford Dominates Postol
MIKEY Williams snapped this for Top Rank

His mobility was marvelous, his hand speed sublime, his accuracy too much to handle. It was all Terence Crawford and then some as he handled Viktor Postol with ridiculous ease on Saturday night in Vegas and on pay per view.

The Ukrainian could not get a bead on Bud, who slid in half moons left, and right and then popped the Freddie Roach trained hitter before sliding away.

Zero drama as we went to the cards, as, after scoring two knockdowns in round five, Crawford won by scores of 118-107, 118-107, 118-107 on a Top Rank promotion.

Credit must be given Crawford (seen above in Stacey Verbeek snap.) He truly is a pugilist, cut from Mayweather cloth. Now, whether that brings him the buy rate to justify more PPVs remains to be seen. Can he get as many hits as Gennady Golovkin versus David Lemieux did, being a subtle artist of a boxer, one who doesn't make TMZ waves with his mouth?

There will be a hard hunt to find an athlete for him to be tested by. Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao will be suggested. What say you all for the boss of bosses at junior welter?
