Terence Crawford?s Signature Boxing Techniques
A well-rounded boxer who quickly moves across tactics depending on the competitor, Terence Crawford displays high boxing IQ by employing techniques such as pressure fighting and counter-punching, among many others.
Switching from Southpaw to Orthodox (and back) is one of the most challenging aspects of going in a fight against him. Let?s look at some critical aspects of Crawford?s fighting style.
Switch Stance: Most of Terence Crawford?s opponents face a boxer in the classic Southpaw stance. But he has never exhibited rigidity over it, switching over to an orthodox posture briefly or perhaps the entire round.?
Such a move often lures orthodox boxers beyond their skill set, leading ?Bud? to launch a devastating left-hand counterattack.?
Similarly, he makes full use of his height which is five feet and eight inches, and the reach of seventy-four to keep opponents at a distance. He usually maintains his southpaw stance while facing other left-handed boxers to deflect any body shots.
Simply put, Terence Crawford has mastered the switching that follows the scenario he might face in the ring.
Jab and Parry: Terence Crawford uses a jab, often overlooked by most critics, to gauge his opponent?s distance. He will also use it to shield himself from the latter?s attack on the head and launch his counterstrikes.
He often switches to the orthodox stance to knock out opponents with left and right hooks he sets up with his jab. A master of lead head feints, he uses the ploy regularly to confuse opponents.
Pull and Counter: ?Bud? frequently executes a counterattack with a right hook, catching right-handed boxers who throw a jab unprepared. Crawford resorts to a full-scale attack as soon as he can make that the competitor is hurt.
He usually applies pressure with a barrage of left hooks, straight punches, and varying his body position, wrongfooting the opponent.
Footwork: The role played by Terence Crawford?s footwork in aid of his defense plan needs special mention. For instance, from a back foot posture, he shuffles back in straight lines, pivots to either left or right, and circles around the foe, stepping laterally. Thus the technique makes him one of the most challenging targets in the sport to hit.
Shoulder Roll: Defending with a shoulder roll is a common tactic in boxing. It?s often linked to the defensive prowess of geniuses like Floyd Mayweather Jr. It starts with the lead shoulder rolled, thus defending the chin. The other hand is kept close to the cheek to block or launch a counterattack.
Besides frustrating the opponent, the shoulder roll produces low wear and tear. By avoiding excessive movement and conserving energy, the shoulder roll is one of the most effective defensive techniques for a boxer.
It will do good to remember that while a helpful method, mastering shoulder roll, takes a lot of work, timing, and knowledge about the opponent?s punches.??

Terence Crawford got shot
So Terence Crawford made his professional debut on March 14, 2008. He engaged in five bouts that year and won them all. But it should be noted that he might have skipped the November battle if not for the tragic incident.
As the story goes, a few days before he turned twenty-one, Crawford and a few of his friends were killing time one night and decided to start shooting dice. Before long, he was ahead of others. Terence lost interest after a few games and collected his winnings.
He went to relax in his 1986 Pontiac Cutlass Supreme. But he made a mistake by staying there for a long time and not leaving immediately. As he began to count, there was a burst of gunfire from behind.?
It was a nine-millimeter bullet that pierced the back glass of his car. It came out that ?Bud? wasn?t the target. The shooter was aiming at someone else. Fortunately, the bullet missed his brain and struck the right side of his head, below his ear.?
The nine-millimeter changed its course once it came in contact with the back window. Had it struck Crawford directly, his condition would have been much worse. He kept his cool and drove himself to the hospital, bleeding profusely.?
Since his injuries weren?t fatal, he was released shortly after receiving stitches. Terence Crawford showing his mental fortitude, once again fought Michael Williams on November 8, his fifth match of the year, barely two months after the incident.
