World champion boxer and pound for pound rated Terence ‘Bud’ Crawford is staring down the barrel of 50 days in jail having been sentenced today in his home town and State of Omaha, Nebraska.
The news comes just days after Crawford’s latest outing in the boxing ring where the gifted American WBO and WBC super-lightweight champion dispatched of challenger John Molina Jr inside the distance at the Century Link Center in Omaha, Nebraska, USA.
However, a past incident earlier in the year has come back up to dampen what was a lot of positive momentum Crawford had built up in the sport of boxing in recent years.
WOWT News are reporting that Crawford is looking at 50 days in jail and two years probation, as well as having to pay a restitution cost, following an incident at an auto body shop that took place earlier in 2016.
The incident allegedly was to do with work done on a vehicle owned by Crawford which prompted him and a number of others to try to retrieve the vehicle from the shop where it was been worked on.
The judge in the case according to WOWT said that Crawford had acted as if he was above the law and took a dim view of his lack of remorse, according to reports.
From a boxing perspective, it is not clear at this time what, if anything, will happen to Crawford’s (30-0-12KO) world title belts.
Lets hope we see him back in the boxing ring as soon as possible in 2017, doing what he does best.
