R1- Crawford comes out popping the jab, and manages to rock Molina a few times with right hands. In what is his only successful moment in the round, Molina causes Crawford to switch to southpaw immediately after taking two wild right hands. Once southpaw, Crawford prevents Molina from doing virtually anything, using the probing jab to sneak in a few lefts, including one anchoring left hook that rocks Molina late. Good start from the champ.

R2- Molina is applying some wild pressure out the gate, which only assists Crawford in landing jabs, left hands, and right hooks at will. Crawford has two super sharp moments when he catches Molina in between with a precise left hand that causes him to turn chin-first into a right hook, and later avoiding a wild right to land an overhand left over the top.

R3- Following two lopsided rounds to kick off the fight, Molina has perhaps his best round of the fight. He manages to cut off Crawford several times, land a counter left hook, and even rock Crawford in between with an overhand right. Despite this success, Crawford is still piling up more points with his jab alone than Molina does with his power punches. On top of that, the 2-3’s and 3-2’s don’t make it any better for Molina either.

R4- Crawford is sticking and moving, but still power-boxing, walking Molina into lead uppercuts, hooks, and crosses. The body work of Crawford has been sharp too, as he causes Molina to double over with a left to the body before landing a straight right to the side of the head.

R5- Effectively being the matador, Crawford has done a good job at keeping Molina from getting on the inside, and a good job at keeping him from making it ugly inside when he does. Everything Molina throws seems to hit the air or shoulders of Crawford, who is countering him effortlessly.

R6- In an opening exchange that Crawford dominates with timing and clean punching, a flush left to the chin hurts Molina, who grits his teeth like the warrior he is and attempts to fight it out. Crawford is still having his way, landing punishing body blows and doubling up on the left and even left hookercut at one point. We also see Crawford disallow Molina to get inside still, turning him around himself entirely at one point.

R7- This round is a repetitive sequence occuring- Crawford spearing Molina with left hands and right hooks before pivoting away or spinning Molina out of position, seemingly taking nothing in return.

R8- The ringside doctor examined Molina in between rounds and contemplated stopping the fight, which honestly would have been the best decision. Molina seems to really go for it, slinging several roundhouse lefts and taunting Crawford throughout after walking through his offense. A left uppercut allows Crawford to momentarily spin Molina into a corner, and he staggers Molina into the corner across from it soon after with a left to the body and right hook to the head. Clearly hurt, Molina finally goes down from a vicious triple right hook combo to the head, body, then head. The ref immediately stops the massacre. Masterful performance from Terence Crawford, who fought the perfect fight to dominate every second against a world class brawler. Not only did he effortlessly outbox, but he also brutally outslugged the slugger. Aside from a few punches far in between, the best things Molina did in the fight were show tons of heart, as usual, and wear real cool Riddler-attire to and in the ring. While Crawford did not dispatch of Molina as easily as DeMarco did, he certainly is second in that regard, but more importantly dished out the worst, most lopsided beatdown that Molina ever endured in his entire career. Terence Crawford arguably deserved to be fighter of the year for 2016 in what would be a second time in my opinion (the first being 2014, unofficially), only behind Carl Frampton if not. In the post fight interview, Max Kellerman entertained the matchup of Crawford and Spence (who was about to challenge for the world title) for the very first time. In what would be six years after that interview took place, hopefully the boxing Gods finally gift us that fight this October!
