What is Terence Crawford’s Net Worth?
Terence Crawford has an estimated net worth of $8 million. This primarily comes from his boxing career where he has a record of 38 wins from 38 fights. The boxer, who can comfortably switch hits from orthodox stance to southpaw, won 29 of his 38 fights via knockout.
Crawford’s first big payday came after his 20th fight. He fought Colombian boxer Breidis Prescott and received a purse of $125,000 after winning via unanimous decision (UD). From his 28th fight against Hank Lundy which ended via TKO in the 5th round, he was paid $1.21 million. The boxer’s earnings have continued to increase since then. His most recent payday came in November 2021 after his fight with Shawn Porter ended in a TKO victory. It was estimated that he received upwards of $6 million.
In addition to prize winnings from fights and Per Pay View income, Crawford also has a few endorsement deals that have added to his wealth. He has had deals with companies like Everlast, etc.
Crawford Began Boxing as a 7-Year-Old
Crawford began boxing at the young age of 7. It is not clear how he got introduced to the sport but he fully embraced it and has excelled in it. While he has so far gone undefeated in his pro career, he lost 12 times in 70 official amateur fights. He however managed to beat future world champions like Mikey Garcia and Danny Garcia.
The Nebraska native had hoped to make it to the 2008 Bejing Olympics to represent the United States and win a Gold medal before turning pro but his dreams were dashed by a loss to Sadam Ali. He would go on to launch his pro career with his pro debut coming on the 14th of March, 2008 against Brian Cummings whom he knocked out in the first round. He fought four more times in 2008 and won all his fights.
Terence Crawford carried on with his impressive performances against unacclaimed opposition before his first notable fight against Prescott. His victory against the Colombian was very impressive because they fought each other on three days notice and it was the first time Crawford was fighting at the 140 lbs limit.
Crawford has since then taken down opponent after opponent, winning his first title, the vacant WBO–NABO lightweight title, after defeating Alejandro Sanabria via TKO in June 2013. He won the WBO lightweight title two fights later in March 2014 before adding the vacant The Ring lightweight title in November of the same year after beating Ray Beltran via UD.
Terence Crawford stepped up weight classes to win the vacant WBO light welterweight title by defeating Thomas Dulorme in April 2015. In July 2016, he defeated Viktor Postol to add the WBC and vacant The Ring light-welterweight titles to his collection. He retained the belts two times before stepping up weight classes to welterweight and defeating Jeff Horn to acquire the WBO welterweight title.
Who is Terence Crawford’s Wife?
Terence Crawford’s wife has been identified as Alindra Person although technically speaking, the pair are not yet officially married. They have been dating for many years and have six children together, hence why she has been often described as his wife.
Alindra is from the same hometown as her partner. She was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska where she met Terence and commenced a relationship with him sometime in the 2000s. The two have been together ever since, raising their six children; Terence Crawford Jr, Miya Crawford, T.Bud Crawford, Tyrese Crawford, Talaya “Lay Lay” Crawford, and Trinity Michele Crawford.
Terence Crawford’s children appear to be following in their father’s footsteps. His sons Tyrese and Lil T are wrestlers in school and have won honors for their performances. His daughter Lay Lay went viral in May 2022 when she won a 200 m race after losing her shoe and stopping to wear it at the beginning of the race. Talaya ended up winning by an unbelievable 10 m. Her father was ecstatic about it and posted the video on social media where it has received thousands of likes and shares.
