The Madison Square Garden crowd booed the ending vociferously, but because the foul was ruled accidental, Crawford wasn’t disqualified and he was awarded the TKO win and successfully defended his WBO Welterweight title.
Prior to the low blow, Crawford was in full control of the bout. He dropped Khan with a counter right hand in the first round and outboxed him throughout the fight. Khan rebounded with a solid second round, but Crawford was dominating, and touching him to the head and body consistently.
