Terence Crawford vs. Julius Indongo
Terence Crawford vs. Julius Indongo Over Rounds 9.5 -155
Crawford-Indongo will be only the fourth fight of the four-belt era in which all four major titles will be on the line in the same bout, and the winner will walk away as the undefeated, undisputed champion and the No. 1 fighter at 140 pounds. The only other time there was a four-belt unification fight was in 2004, when then-middleweight champion Bernard Hopkins put 3 belts up against Oscar De La Hoya’s only belt and knocked him out to unify the 160-pound division.
I think these guys have a 12 round war and a close decision, but taking the -155 as the 12 round prop’s line isn’t that big of a difference, and in case of anything funky (also most of the KO’s in these big matches have come in the later rounds, when a fighter is clearly behind and chasing a KO because he knows he’ll not win on the scorecards).
Should be a good match and a nice appetizer for next’s week MayMac shitshow, which we’ll have a write up on this site next week!
