Sports stars react to Terence Crawford’s victory over Shawn Porter
Terence Crawford’s defense of his WBO welterweight championship against Shawn Porter on Saturday was slated as his biggest challenge to date. Crawford, ESPN’s No. 2 pound-for-pound boxer, entered the bout in Las Vegas, Nevada, with a perfect 37-0 record, including 28 knockouts, under his belt.
