R1- Crawford is pumping a rapid jab and scoring repeatedly. This prevents Klimov from establishing any rhythm, along with the fact that Crawford is countering and punching with him whenever he throws, with Crawford winning all of the exchanges. The body work of Crawford is impressive as well, and he briefly stumbles Klimov with a short overhand right. Good start from the Omaha native.

R2- Funny how they note how dismissive Klimov was of Crawford’s skills and power going in, citing that “many Russians are as fast and skilled”, when the skills, power and speed of Crawford clearly have thrown Klimov off. Klimov is unable to get past the jab, is caught off balance by a straight right at one point, and is neutralized altogether when Crawford turns southpaw, catching Klimov a couple of times with his signature angled right hooks.

R3- The crowd is booing throughout, but that does not detract from the good work that Crawford is doing. Aside from outlanding Klimov severely with the jab, he is also landing some nice, winging hooks from the outside, mostly when Klimov pivots, and is landing good left uppercuts when Klimov tries to cut the distance.

R4- Crawford starts to apply more pressure and continues to box beautifully. The jab and feints are always making Klimov guess, and Crawford makes him pay for stepping to the side or creating any lulls by hitting him with long hooks to the body and head. A right hand momentarily staggers Klimov, who barely engages in the round. Good stuff from Crawford.

R5- The crowd during the HBO era certainly were not fans of Crawford. Early on, Bud lands a three-punch combination, and blocks the one shot that comes back from Klimov. This is pretty much how the story of the fight has been. Crawford is still stalking the tentative Klimov, tattooing him with jabs, giving him lots of feints, and landing double left hooks throughout.

R6- Klimov is throwing a dummy jab, but Crawford is throwing and landing a real one. While Crawford seems to have stepped off the gas, unlike the killer mentality he displays today, he is the only one doing any real work, and lands some power shots to the face in the closing minute.

R7- From the opening bell, Crawford puts the southpaw jab in rapid fire, and blasts Klimov with 1-2’s throughout. His countering is very on point as expected, as he lands a smooth left uppercut in response to a missed haymaker by Klimov, and later puts him in retreat at the end of the round from a right hook to the head. During this sequence, Crawford is able to get in a clean left uppercut, but is not able to establish a proper follow up. Another impressive round for Crawford.

R8- This is a rather calm round, and of course Crawford wins it easily with the jab and straight body punches. Klimov lets go a half-hearted rally, which Crawford blocks the entire thing and smiles in return. Compubox is not always trustworthy, but it is revealed that Crawford landed 4x as many punches as Klimov, which is very believable.

R9- One cannot help but to find it a bit humorous hearing Klimov’s trainer say he’s “acting like a fucking coward”. Aside from a volley of aggressive lefts in the opening, Crawford continues to coast with his jab and occasional power shots from the outside.

R10- Drawing back to when Kellerman compared Crawford to Whitaker, Crawford does to a good impression by coasting and clowning in the final round, as he moves around and slips the occasional offense from Klimov, taunting him several times. Klimov is clumsily chasing Crawford to no avail, trying to load up on one fight-winning right hand, which he lacks the power and skill to land. They slug it out in the closing moments, and Crawford is unsurprisingly the only one landing. A left hook to the body and right hook to the head have Klimov hurt along the ropes, but the bell prevents Crawford from following up. I personally thought this was a fantastic, clinical performance from Crawford, as he showed many dimensions to his game, was ten steps ahead of Klimov in every department, schooling the undefeated fighter and hurting him several times. While Klimov would go on to lose a majority of his upcoming fights, nothing but gold would be in the path of Crawford since this, as every bout since would be a chanpionship bout.
