In the night's main event, one of the world's top pound-for-pound boxing greats, Terence Crawford, takes on the undefeated Julius Indongo.
"It means everything", said Crawford.
The Omaha native, 29, was class and composure personified on what was the biggest night of his career and he must undoubtedly now be ranked alongside Andre Ward and Vasyl Lomachenko among others. He knocked out Eduard Troyanovsky in Russian Federation capturing the IBF world championship, and recently in April of 2017 he beat Ricky Burns in Scotland by unanimous decision taking his WBA belt away in dominating fashion.
It is unlikely that "Bud" will decide to stay in the 140lbs division following victory, with a showdown clash against Mikey Garcia the only tempting reason to maybe stay put.
Crawford joined Taylor and Hopkins as the only boxers to own four recognized titles simultaneiously since the WBO became a recognized sanctioning organization in the 1990s.
He said: "This is a dream come true".
'Free speech rally' & counter protest kick off on Boston Common
That rally is to take place in the historic Boston Common at noon EST, organized by a group calling itself " Boston Free Speech". Boston police say 27 arrests were made during the conservative activist rally and counterdemonstration on Boston Common.
Dillian Whyte (21-0-1, 16 KO) picked up his first Heavyweight win on U.S. soil, introducing Malcolm Tann (24-5, 13 KO) to the canvas in the 2nd and 3rd sessions, before seizing a stoppage victory. What makes him so exciting and hard is his ability to adapt and punch with power from both hands, he has the heart and the grit combined with the ring smarts to outbox an opponent who tries to get aggressive.
He ended the fight just one round later by flooring the former Olympian with a body shot.
Whyte is now hopeful that he can land himself a world title shot and has regularly spoke out about his intentions to challenge WBC world champion Deontay Wilder.
Garcia's alignment with Al Haymon and Showtime is the real hurdle in getting this fight over the line, with Crawford's win on Saturday being aired on rival network ESPN in the US.
There are many legitimate contenders for No. 1, and many of them are young and will be around for a while.
