Terence Crawford, 35-0, Pummels Amir Khan to Stoppage in Round 6”

Amir Khan may have been looking for a way out during Saturday night's frightful beating at the hands of Terence Crawford.

Khan's corner pulled him out after he took a low blow from American Crawford in the sixth round in NY.

Before the fight at Madison Square Garden, Khan - a former two-weight world champion - said he was in the "last chapter" of his career. Knocked down in the first round, ...

"I didn't quit. I was hit with a low blow in the balls".

"I could feel it in my stomach and legs. I have been knocked out because I try to win fights", said Khan, as a bemused Crawford pulled a face and asked him to clarify that he hadn't in fact quit. I now understand why he's one of the top five pound-for-pound fighters in the world.

Speaking in the ring as boos rang out around the famous NY arena, Khan said: 'First of all I want to apologise to all of the fans.

"There was no point taking five minutes out, I could not continue".

Briton Kell Brook - whom Khan could fight next - said his long-time rival "quit", and there were boos from the crowd when the fight was ended. It was sore. I couldn't think straight after it. "I believe in my skills and I don't believe it's just my punch power, I believe it's my overall skills that will lead to victory". I tried to continue but it was getting worse. Was barely even a low blow too hit him on the thigh/hip mostly'.

With one wayward left hand, Crawford gave it to him.

Despite his success in Athens as a 17 year old, and the only fighter who represented Great Britain at those games, Khan has never had the universal love of his countrymen felt by the likes of Ricky Hatton and Joe Calzaghe.

"I'm a good boxer but he was showcasing good movement, I was caught with a shot right below the belt".

Crawford has won all 35 of his professional bouts and is widely regarded as one of the leading pound-for-pound boxers in the world.
