Amir Khan Vs Terence Crawford: Fans blast Crawford for denying low blow to Khan that replays clearly prove

To say the finish of the fight between Amir Khan and Terence Crawford was underwhelming would be the understatement of the year.

Khan retired from the fight after suffering a low blow from the WBO welterweight champion in the fifth round, citing pain in his stomach and seized legs as the reason he could not continue.

Terence Crawford scored an early knockdown

In his post-fight interview, Crawford immediately stated: “First of all, it wasn’t a low blow.”

Replays have suggested that is simply not true.

Crawford, now 35-0, was dominating the fight in all fairness and put Khan down with a brutal right hand in the first round.

One judge even had the American winning every round before the fight was stopped, but fans aren’t buying his story about the low blow.

Crawford clearly caught Khan low

Those same fans pretty unanimously believe that Khan took the easy way out and that’s a sentiment shared by perpetual rival Kell Brook.

The replays clearly show it was a low blow and it is likely Crawford would have been deducted a point had the fight continued.

As it turned out, Khan simply accelerated a result that seemed a foregone conclusion given the flow of the fight.
