New York, NY – Wednesday, May 31, 2017: Terence Crawford has officially signed a deal with Everlast Worldwide to become the latest athlete to join #TeamEverlast. Crawford has been working with Everlast for the majority of his career and stated that “I joined Team Everlast because they always supported me and believed in me since the beginning of my career. ”
Crawford turned pro in 2008 and has since gone undefeated to achieve a record of 31-0 with 22 KOs. He first captured a title in 2014 on British soil where he went the distance with Ricky Burns to become the new WBO World Lightweight Champion. Since 2014, Crawford successfully defended that title twice before moving up to Super Lightweight (140 lbs). Those three performances earned him the Boxing Writers Association of America’s award for the “2014 Fighter of the Year.”
In 2015, Crawford captured the WBO World Super Lightweight Title from Thomas Dulorme. A year later, Crawford beat out Viktor Postol to capture the WBC World Super Lightweight Title. The now two weight class champ, is currently ranked the #1 Super Lightweight in the world and is considered the #5 Pound for Pound best fighter in the world by Ring TV.
Chris Zoller, the Marketing Director at Everlast, stated “We have always been big fans of Bud, not only is he a talented boxer, but he is really passionate about building the sport of boxing. We look forward to working with him more closely to help build his brand and community of fans.” Everlast’s media team will be working with Crawford to build content and develop new products to support his training and promotion of upcoming title defenses.
