TERENCE CRAWFORD became the first ever boxer to stop Shawn Porter during their title clash on Saturday at the Michelob Ultra Arena in Las Vegas.
Crawford retained the WBO welterweight championship in style as he twice floored Porter in the 10th round before his father and trainer Kenny Porter withdrew his son from the fight.
The American bruiser picked up the biggest win of his career as he extended his undefeated streak to 38 wins while handing his opponent his first ever TKO loss at the same time.
IBF and WBC champion Errol Spence Jr watched from ringside but left his seat during Porter's demise and Bud hinted that he is coming for him during his post-fight interview.
Crawford said: "I figured out in round one that I would win because I had the reach.
"He wanted to maul and push me back but I did it back to him.
"Shawn Porter is a good fighter, but I knew when I dropped him with the uppercut and then again that his dad would stop it.
"I will fight whoever wants it next, everyone knows who I want [Spence Jr].

"I told him I love him, Shawn Porter is a really good friend of mine and I never wanted to fight him."
The fight left a mark on both opponents as Porter suffered a cut above his eye following an accidental clash of heads in the third round.
Crawford sustained an eye injury of his own in the next round following another collision with his opponent.
However, that didn't stop the 34-year-old from picking up his ninth stoppage in a row.
