Terence Crawford Profile
Terence Crawford is a professional boxer who currently competes in the Welterweight division - and is one of the most popular boxers of his time.
Born in Omaha, Nebraska, USA on 28th September 1987, the 33-year-old took up the sport at the age of 7, losing just 12 times from 70 fights as an amateur and beating future world champions Mikey and Danny Garcia during that timeframe.
Also known as “Bud”, Crawford opened his professional account in 2008 by knocking out Brian Cummings in the first round in the Lightweight class, which was the beginning of a 22-bout winning streak before becoming the WBO Lightweight champion in 2014, beating Ricky Burns via unanimous decision.
Crawford would go on to obtain the vacant The Ring title a year later after overcoming Ray Beltran in his hometown. However, it wasn’t until he moved up to Light Welterweight and took on WBC champion Viktor Postol where he really made his name, winning the belt and picking up a cool $3.6 million in his first pay-per-view event.
As his perfect record continued, he then knocked out Julius Indongo at the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Nebraska to win the WBC, WBO, The Ring, WBA (Super) and IBF titles. Astonishingly, in his very next fight he moved up to Welterweight and was thrown straight into a world championship bout against Jeff Horn, taking the WBO crown which he still holds to this day.
