OMAHA---Terence "Bud" Craw-
ford stopped Cuba s Yuriorkis Gam-
boa in the ninth round Saturday
night to successfully defend his
WBO lightweight belt in a match
of unbeaten fighters.
Crawford wobbled Gamboa with
a left and knocked him down with
another left earlier in the ninth, then
connected with a right to the chin
at the 2:53 mark, prompting referee
Gino Rodriguez to call the fight.
As Rodriguez waved his arms,
Crawford ran to a neutral corner and
jumped on the shoulders of co-man-
ager Brian McIntyre.
"I hurt him plenty of times,"
Crawford said, "so when I hurt him
the last time, I was looking to fin-
The 26-year-old Crawford (24-
0, 17 knockouts) was fighting in his
hometown for the first time as a
professional, and more than 10,000
showed up at the CenturyLink Cen-
ter, many of them chanting "Craw-
ford! Craw-ford!" throughout.
"I imagined everybody screaming,
supporting me," Crawford said. "It
was everything I thought it was going
It was his first title defense since
his 12-round unanimous decision
over Ricky Burns in Glasgow, Scot-
land, in March. He said he plans
to move up to junior welterweight
after this fight. The 32-year-old
Gamboa (23-1, 16 knockouts), a
2004 Olympic champion, was
fighting for the first time in a year.
Crawford took control in the mid-
dle rounds. In the fifth, Crawford
knocked down Gamboa with a left
to the side of his head. Crawford
staggered him just before the bell
with a flurry of shots, bringing the
crowd to its feet.
The 5-foot-5 (1.65-metre) Gam-
boa, with a 5-inch reach disadvan-
tage, had trouble working inside
against Crawford. When Crawford
moved in, Gamboa used his superior
speed to duck under him.
Crawford landed a right to Gam-
boa s cheek in the second round. As
the fighters went into a clinch, Gam-
boa put a couple quick rights to the
back of Crawford s head, drawing a
warning from the referee. Gamboa
landed a couple stinging shots in
the third, but that he never was able
to hurt Crawford.
"He caught me with a good shot
in the ninth, at the beginning," Craw-
ford said. "It got my attention and
buzzed me a little."

KLAGENFURT---Triathletes Ivan Rana
of Spain and Linsey Corbin of the
United States posted the fastest times
of the season while winning the Iron-
man Austria event yesterday.
Rana won the men s race in a per-
sonal best mark of seven hours, 48
minutes, 43 seconds to beat second-
place Christian Kramer of Germany by
David Plese of Slovenia came 14:11
behind in third.
Rana, who finished sixth at last year s
world championship in Hawaii, took
the lead after 140 kilometers of cycling
and stayed ahead of the field.
Former world champion and pre-
race favorite Faris Al-Sultan of Ger-
many, who was third after the swim,
was leading the competition when he
quit the race because of a flat tire.
Corbin, who also won the event in
2012, finished the women s race in
8:42:42, beating the course record set
by fellow American Mary Beth Ellis in
2012 by 56 seconds.
Simone Braendli of Switzerland, who
was the fastest swimmer, trailed the
American by 6:34 in second place. Lisa
Huetthaler of Austria took third, 10.38
off the lead.
Corbin led Huetthaler by just four
seconds starting the marathon. The
Austrian soon failed to match the
American s pace and was later overtaken
HOUSTON---IndyCar fined Marco
Andretti $2,500 yesterday for failing
to heed to an order from race control
during the Grand Prix of Houston.
Andretti ignored a blue flag during
Saturday s first race to give way to leader
Takuma Sato as Andretti tried to stay
on the lead lap. Race control could have
perceived that Andretti was holding up
Sato to allow Andretti Autosport team-
mate James Hinchcliffe to catch the
Because Andretti ignored the blue
flag, he was given a black flag and a
In addition to the fine, IndyCar
placed Andretti on probation for three
races beginning with yesterday s race.
Andretti Autosport was also fined
Andretti vehemently disagreed with
the penalty following yesterday s qual-
"My question was, what would have
happened if James was leading?" he
said. "It s the 20th lap of the race and
the facts are I finished ahead of Sato.
Because you have to fight. It s early in
the race. If it s late in the race, I would
have moved over, they wouldn t have
had to tell me to move over."
Andretti had been spun by teammate
Carlos Munoz earlier in the race to put
him in position to be lapped by Sato.
But his car was not damaged, and he
went on to an eighth-place finish.
Sato was involved in a later accident
and finished 22nd.
"I wasn t off the pace," Andretti said,
arguing he was only in position to be
lapped "because I got spun. If (the lead-
ers) caught me by a whole lap, then
they have a point. But I was one of the
top three fastest cars out there."
