Crawford stopped good friend, mandatory challenger and former two-time welterweight titlist Shawn Porter in the 10th round to retain his WBO welterweight crown for the fifth time before a sold-out crowd of 11,568 on Saturday night at the Michelob ULTRA Arena at Mandalay Bay. The pro-Crawford crowd was treated to a highly entertaining and competitive fight until Crawford ended matters with two knockdowns in the 10th round followed by Kenny Porter, Shawn’s father and trainer, signaling surrender from the ring apron.
