This time, Crawford stopped Jose Benavidez Jr.in the final seconds of the 12th round to retain his WBO welterweight title for the first time since winning the belt off of Jeff Horn earlier this year.
Benavidez did have some success in the fourth, but Crawford took control after the halfway point and was well ahead on the cards by the time the fight reached the 12th.
As a result the American extended his unbeaten record to 34 wins from 34 fights, the last 12 of which have been title fights, while simultaneously inflicting the first defeat of Benavidez's 27-fight career.
Benavidez Jr recovered but the fight ended in flurry of punches from Crawford, with the referee stepping in.
While standing face-to-face on the stage, Benavidez said something to Crawford and shoved him.

Both appeared at a media workout Wednesday, and two heated confrontations erupted between the fighters' camps, the last one ending with Crawford being pulled away from Benavidez.
Benavidez will be fighting for the third time since being shot multiple times in August 2016 in his hometown of Phoenix. "I know I have what it takes to beat him, and I am going to beat him".
"He hasn't faced anyone who has a good resume or has a bad-ass resume", Benavidez said. The obstacle to making any of those happen, however, is that those three boxers are promoted by Premier Boxing Champions.
"I feel like he's a little anxious, to be honest with you", Benavidez said following a press conference on Thursday at the CHI Health Center in Omaha, Nebraska, the venue for Saturday's showdown.
