Saturday Dec 10 2016 Crawford won by TKO in the eighth round (AP Photo/Nati Harnik) Top News Unbeaten world champion Terence “Bud” Crawford stopped John Molina in the eighth round to end a dominating performance and a dominating year Crawford retained his WBO and WBC junior welterweight titles Molina didn’t make the 140-pound weight Friday and had Crawford been upset the titles would have been vacated Backed by a hometown crowd of 11270 at CenturyLink Center Crawford was fighting for the third time this year and first since his lopsided win over former WBC champ Viktor Postol in Las Vegas last summer In the fight before that he knocked out Hank Lundy in New York Now Crawford is poised to be named fighter of the year for a second time in three years “I think I should get a lot of credit for what I did this year especially tonight” Crawford said “I showed I could be a finisher” Crawford was in control all the way and finished off Molina moments after Molina raised his hands as if to ask for more as the champion landed a flurry of punches A shot to the midsection backed Molina into the neutral corner and Crawford then unloaded repeated shots to the head and body causing Molina to go down Referee Mark Nelson stepped in to stop the fight at the 2:32 mark “He fought a hell of a fight tonight and he came out on top” Molina said “Omaha’s a good fight town and we appreciated coming here” The 29-year-old Crawford (30-0 21 knockouts) came out in an orthodox stance but quickly switched to southpaw Molina was on defense early with Crawford landing a left to the head and then a right that staggered him Molina walked into a right to the head in the second Crawford went mostly untouched but Molina did land a hard right to the head in the third From there Crawford mixed in his jab while connecting often with punches to the head and body “It’s cool to have somebody come straight forward and be an easy target but you still have to stay focused” Crawford said “I hit him with everything We were prepared for him I think I showed that today” Crawford continues to hold out hope that he gets a shot at Manny Pacquiao before Pacquiao retires “Yeah I’d like to fight him I’m not chasing him” Crawford said “We’re ready to fight anybody Our promoters pick the fight We train and go fight” The 33-year-old Molina (29-7 23 knockouts) upset Ruslan Provodnikov in his last fight but had been just 5-5 in his previous 10 The fight against Crawford lost much of its luster when Molina weighed in at 1434 pounds on Friday disqualifying him from winning the titles In the co-main event former world title contender Ray Beltran knocked out Mason Menard 51 seconds into the seventh round to win a pair of regional lightweight titles Beltran (32-7-1 20 knockouts) began asserting himself after the second round Beltran left Menard (32-2 24 knockouts) woozy with a flurry at the end of the sixth His left to the right cheek laid out Menard and Nelson stopped the fight Menard who had won 30 straight fights stepped in for the injured Juan Diaz on the card Beltran had won twice since stopping Takahiro Ao in May 2015 but that fight was changed to a no-decision after he failed a

semifinals hopes alive when the two sides take on each other in an Indian Super League football match Pune are placed sixth with 12 points from 10 matches and will need full points against the league leaders on Friday to stay alive Delhi are comfortably placed with 17 points from 10 matches Under-pressure Pune head coach Antonio Habas said except for Delhi no team can take their qualification to the semi-finals for granted “We are on the hunt for a win This league is very tough and all teams are in a similar situation We are ready to grab these three points” said Habas at the pre-match media interaction Pune were flying high after victories over Atletico de Kolkata and Mumbai City FC but they were grounded by Chennaiyin FC who scripted a comfortable 2-0 victory in their last clash Habas admitted losing all points was a setback but all is still not lost for his team “All teams except Delhi are close (to each other on the table) The teams who play better and score goals will be the ones who make less mistakes If you look at the points table it’s all about plus or minus two points difference Now it’s all about minimising mistakes” said the Spanish coach who will be under pressure

achieved their primary target of qualification for the play-offs and that target could come closer on Friday if they manage to win against Pune “At the moment we are in a good position but we are (still) a long way off from the play-offs It’s a strong league The next four matches will not be easy We have to take match by match Right now our focus is only on this match against Pune” said the

session Zambrotta will miss Milan Singh who scored a screamer against ATK but picked up a booking his fourth of the league which automatically suspends him for one match “I know Pune lost the last
