IBR on The Cruelest Sport

“Before 11,020 of his fellow cornhuskers at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Nebraska, on Saturday night, Terence Crawford did what all in attendance hoped for (and even more expected) when he stopped Dierry Jean in ten rounds. It was a performance exemplifying the “parse and dismantle” style Crawford has used to flawless effect. No, he does not explode from his corner, spurred into battle by any number of isms trusted to turn a stretch of canvas into an existential battlefield. Crawford does, however, invariably treat opponents according to their ability; which is to say, Jean, a competent but unremarkable fighter, stood no chance.”
