Terence “Bud” Crawford was born in Omaha, Nebraska in the United States on September 28th in 1987. Crawford had an accomplished amateur career winning gold medals on 3 separate occasions and decided to try his hand at the pro level in 2008. He scored a spectacular knockout in his debut in under 30 seconds and hasn’t looked back since.
In 2014, with a record of 22-0, Crawford received his first world title shot when he took on reigning WBO lightweight world champ Ricky Burns. The fight was fought in Burns’ home country of Scotland and Burns was seeking his 5th straight title defense, but despite the odds Crawford pulled off a unanimous decision win to become world champ for the first time.
After two successful title defenses Crawford moved to the light welterweight division and won his 2nd world title in 2015 when he stopped Thomas Dulrome in the 6th round to win the vacant WBO super lightweight world title. In October of 2015 Crawford stopped Dierry Jean in the 10th round to make the first defense of his super lightweight title and remain undefeated with a record of 27-0, with 19 knockouts.
