Fight in progress…

Krishan wins big

Junior middleweight Vikas “The Indian Tank” Krishan (2-0, 1 KO), a two-time Olympian from India, won a lopsided decision over Noah Kidd (3-2-1, 2 KOs) that appeared much tougher than the scorecards indicated. He won 60-54, 60-54 and 59-55 but got touched with a lot of clean shots. The most decorated amateur boxer in Indian history, Krishan, 27, signed with Top Rank last fall and won his pro debut by first-round knockout on Jan. 18. But Kidd, 23, of Jefferson City, Missouri, took him the distance and gave him a very tough fight, including opening a cut over his right eye in the fifth round.

Bantamweight Lawrence Newton (12-0, 7 KOs), 22, of Boynton Beach, Florida, who is a stablemate of Crawford’s and also trained by Brian McIntyre, routed hard-charging Jonathan Garza (7-3, 2 KOs), 22, of Lawrenceville, Georgia, on the Terence Crawford-Amir Khan undercard on Saturday. Newton won 60-54, 59-55 and 59-55.
