Terence Allan Crawford is an American professional boxer. He is a world champion in three weight classes, having held the WBO welterweight title since June 2018; previously he held the WBO, Ring magazine and lineal lightweight titles from 2014 to 2015; and the unified WBA (Super), WBC, IBF, WBO, Ring and lineal light welterweight titles between 2015 and 2017.
In August 2017, Crawford had a short reign as the undisputed light welterweight champion, and was the most recent undisputed titlist in the division since Kostya Tszyu in 2004. Crawford became the first male boxer to simultaneously hold all four major world titles in boxing (WBA, WBC, IBF, and WBO) since Jermain Taylor in 2005, and is one of only five boxers in history to do so, with Taylor, Bernard Hopkins, and Cecilia Brækhus preceding him and Oleksandr Usyk following him.
As of May 2018, Crawford is ranked as the world’s second best active boxer, pound for pound, by the Boxing Writers Association of America and Transnational Boxing Rankings Board and third by The Ring, ESPN and BoxRec. He was named Fighter of the Year by the Boxing Writers Association of America in 2014, and by ESPN in 2014 and 2017.
Stylistically, Crawford is known for his exceptionally fast hand speed, punching power and defensive skills, as well as his ability to comfortably switch hit from orthodox to southpaw.

It’s a bit strange that within the history of ESPN’s 30 for 30 series, we haven’t seen a documentary about the night James “Buster” Douglas upset Mike Tyson in Tokyo, Japan to become Undisputed Heavyweight Champion.
The story has been told time and time again as it’s not only one of the more pivotal moments in boxing history but also in Mike Tyson’s boxing career, but it was weird that the fight never got the “30 for 30” treatment. Until now.
ESPN released a trailer for their latest 30 for 30 release 42 to 1, its title pointing out what oddsmakers in Vegas had on Douglas beating Tyson. 42 to 1 is set to premiere December 11, on ESPN.
This film, directed by Ben Houser and Jeremy Schaap, will show what went on in that fight and how one of the greatest upsets in sports history happened.
ESPN hasn’t done as many 30 for 30 movies this year than in previous years but 42 to 1 is in the middle of a stretch of films ESPN has announced.
Co-Directed by 11-time Emmy Award winner Jeremy Schaap (E:60, The Sporting Life) & 17-time Emmy award and 4-time Edward R. Murrow Award winner Ben Houser .
