It was a packed crowd at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Nebraska Saturday night, most of them there to see hometown star Terence Crawford defend his WBO lightweight title against arguably his toughest and most high profile opponent of his career in Yuriorkis Gamboa. It was a good night for those fans, for more than a few reasons, as they were treated to a fantastic fight between two incredibly skilled warriors in the main event of HBO’s Boxing After Dark. The first round started off with Gamboa getting into a comfortable rhythm and dictating the fight’s pace. The hand speed of Gamboa was on full display and he was using his laser right hand behind a steady, albeit lackadaisical jab. Gamboa continued to showcase his speed and was finding his distance, getting in and out of his opponent. But it was clear that Crawford was beginning to get settled in there and his speed was starting to showcase itself in the form of well-timed counter punching.
