Crawford could now move up to welterweight, and promoter Bob Arum has said the American may face the victor of the rematch between Manny Pacquiao and Jeff Horn.

The unbeaten Nebraska native delighted his Cornhusker fans in a big way on Saturday night in Lincoln, defeating previously pristine slugger Julius Indongo by third-round knockout to capture the Namibian's IBF and WBA 140-pound title belts atop a Top Rank-promoted card from the Pinnacle Bank Arena. He now holds the WBO and WBC super lightweight world titles.

A crowd of more than 12,000 looked on as Crawford became the first boxer to hold four title belts at once since 2005.

Crawford will have to give up the IBF 140-pound title if he doesn't fight Lipinets next. Sound off in the comments section below with your thoughts.

In the second round, Crawford sent Indongo down. After crumbling to the canvas, the 34-year-old Indongo winced and writhed in obvious anguish as referee Jack Reiss administered a ten-count he was never going to beat.

Crawford came in with the WBC and WBO belts; Indongo, from Namibia, was the WBA and IBF champion. Crawford also landed a few lead rights to the body in the first as well, then landed another in the second that was followed by a left hand that dropped Indongo for the first time.

Ric Flair's Manager reports that he's awake and communicating
Sports Illustrated reported on Thursday that Flair had an intestinal blockage which resulted in a part of his bowel being removed. Guy has been struck by lightening and survived a plane crash, so let's not count him out one second.

Indongo (22-1, 11 knockouts) made his rise in his weight division in less than a year after winning bouts in Russian Federation and Scotland.

Indongo, however, was no match for the pound for pound rated Crawford, who extended his professional record to 32-0 (23) with yet another standout performance.

On the undercard, 20-year-old Shakur Stevenson scored a unanimous decision over Argentinian David Paz in a super featherweight bout. In the ESPN-televised co-feature, light heavyweight contender Oleksandr Gvozdyk took his time before dispatching Craig Baker.

Battler Mike Alvarado (38-4, 26 KO) made it 4-0 in his Welterweight comeback, knocking out Sidney De Siqueira (26-13-1, 17 KO) inside 4 rounds.

Dillian Whyte (21-0-1, 16 KO) picked up his first Heavyweight win on United States soil, introducing Malcolm Tann (24-5, 13 KO) to the canvas in the 2nd and 3rd sessions, before seizing a stoppage victory.
