WBO welterweight world champion Terence Crawford was trending number one worldwide this past weekend after a huge night of boxing on ESPN.

Indeed, the fight set the ratings record this year on ESPN for a boxing match shown and was second in their all time records only to Manny Pacquiao vs Jeff Horn.

Crawford has done things the hard way in his career to this point in that he’s rarely engaged in trash talk and done the talking with his talented fists, remained undefeated and become a multiple-weight world champion.

He’s coming out of his shell a bit more however in recent times and coupled with the fact he’s now fighting in front of the masses on ESPN, he’s on his way to getting the exposure and fame his considerable talents deserve.

After the fight on social media Crawford had this message to his critics:

No doubt next year has some big things in store for the man they call ‘Bud’ from Omaha, Nebraska.
