Terence "Bud" Crawford has inked a seven-year deal to stay with Top Rank Boxing and continue fighting on ESPN, he announced on Instagram Thursday morning.
First off I like to thank God for blessing me with this blessing. Thanks Top Rank and my Team for making this possible. Just a kid from North Omaha with big hopes and dreams that came true. Now with that been said, let’s go to work!!! I’m looking forward to fighting all the big names in the welterweight division. #Godfirst #family #teamcrawford #toprankboxing #espn
ESPN's Darren Rovell tweeted that the deal was "one of the most lucrative deals in the fight game today."
Crawford is 33-0 as a professional and is a world champion in three different weight classes. His last fight was June 9 when he defeated Jeff Horn to win the World Boxing Organization welterweight title. ESPN ranks Crawford the No. 2 pound-for-pound fighter in the world.
