Fireworks exploded at a weigh-in between Terence Crawford and Jose Benavidez on Friday.

Terence "Bud" Crawford had one last retort to all the insults Jose Benavidez hurled his way.

Crawford, 31, improves to 34-0 (25 KOs) with the win and retains his WBO welterweight title. The crowd was the largest that Crawford has drawn to date and he gave the hometown fans a show.

Crawford, a three-division champion who was making his first defense of his WBO welterweight belt, stuck out his tongue at his fallen opponent at the conclusion of what amounted to a personal grudge match.

As he had promised Crawford refused to shake hands with Benavidez after the fight, and he said: "It was just a matter of time".

But the end would come before the cards could come into consideration, Crawford's volley of punches forcing Ruiz to stop the fight and bringing the partisan hometown crowd to their feet. He slowed down tremendously.

Perhaps tiring, Benavidez retreated to the ropes for much of the 10th round as Crawford looked for a knockout blow. And I hope he swings faster than what he swung today, because I've seen that punch coming a mile away.

"I gave a hell of a fight to the best fighter in the world", Benavidez said.

Benavidez confronted the champion at a boxing event in Corpus Christi, Texas, in February, accusing Crawford of ducking him repeatedly.

Super-featherweight Mikaela Mayer, another Rio Olympian, took her record to 8-0 with a dominant points victory against Vanessa Bradford.
