Terence Allan Crawford, more commonly known as Terence Crawford, is an American professional boxer from Omaha, Nebraska. Crawford is one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world.
Prior to going pro, Crawford had a fairly decorated amateur career. According to BoxRec, his amateur record stands at 58-12. He won gold at the 2006 United States Blue & Gold National Championships.
Furthermore, he won Gold at the 2006 National PAL Championships and Gold at the 2007 U.S. Pan American Games Box-Offs.
Crawford made his professional debut on March 14, 2008. He has since fought in three weight classes and is yet to taste defeat.
‘Bud’ has held the WBO lightweight title, WBO super-lightweight title, WBC super-lightweight title, WBA super lightweight title, IBF super-lightweight title, and the WBO welterweight world title.
According to BoxRec, Terence Crawford’s record stands at a staggering 37-0. 28 of these have come by way of knockout. He has had some memorable fights along the way against the likes of Amir Khan and Yuriorkis Gamboa.
However, he is yet to face multi-weight king, Canelo Alvarez. Also, he never faced Manny Pacquiao in the welterweight division.
‘Bud’ won his first major world title in his twenty-third professional fight. He claimed the WBO lightweight title after defeating Ricky Burns. In 2017, he became one of the few undisputed champions in the sport.
He became an undisputed super-lightweight world champion after beating Julius Indongo. Soon after that fight, he moved up a weight class. Here, he won the WBO welterweight title against Jeff Horn.
2021 promises to be an exciting year for the champion as rumors point to a big unification fight against Errol Spence Jr. If it is to happen, it would be one of the biggest fights of the year.
Terence Crawford is no stranger to charity work. Right from his amateur career, he has been doing good for the underprivileged. Yahoo Sports revealed a story where Crawford gave his clothes away to the underprivileged.
Boxing fans know Crawford as one who does a lot for the poor of his locality in Omaha. He has opened a B&B Sports Academy to work with troubled children. The undefeated champion has also gone on two charitable missions to Africa to help the poor.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, ‘Bud’ has made an estimated $8 million as of January 2021. His primary source of income is boxing. For his fights against Jose Benevidez Jr and Jeff Horn, he earned a combined $6.625 million.
