It would be tough for some to fathom. The pound-for-pound best boxer in the world, a technical wizard, is equally adept at wrestling. Recently, a few videos of Terence Crawford dabbling in carefree wrestling jaunts stunned scores of fans and followers. The undefeated champion created history this year. He defeated long-time rival Errol Spence Jr. on July 29, becoming the first male two-division undisputed champion.

He comes from a family of wrestlers. His grandfather, father, and uncles were all involved with the sport. As it appears, continuing with the family’s tradition, his sons too seem to have taken to the game of grappling. The proud father that he is, Terence Crawford couldn’t help but take everyone through his moment of happiness. He shared the good news of his sons’ recent success in wrestling with the world.

Taking to his Instagram stories, the Welterweight champion first shared a short clip showing the venue where the tournament took place. Then the following stories had photographs of his sons, both standing with their mementos and medals, the first one had Terence Crawford Jr. It’s not clear whether the second picture had T. Bud Crawford or Tyrese Crawford standing. Congratulating his son, ‘Bud’ wrote, “Number two, good job, son.

A few months ago, clips of Terence Crawford displaying peerless wrestling skills gained considerable traction on social media. In August, @parrypunch shared clips of the boxing champion grappling with a member of Kazakhstan’s national wrestling team. Though the video is almost a year old, the Instagram post garnered over sixty thousand likes. The message read, “The grappling skills of undisputed Welterweight Champion Terence Crawford are on point.

Soon after the big fight with Spence Jr., speaking across multiple podcast studios, the Nebraskan expressed a keen interest in pursuing a match with either Canelo Alvarez or Jermell Charlo. Then, in between, there were talks of a face-off with Gervonta Davis. But Crawford clarified that it is not going to happen until the Baltimorean climbs to 147 pounds. In the meantime, new developments occurred.

By September, Errol Spence Jr. had invoked the rematch clause, which was part of their initial fight’s terms. On the other hand, Charlo suffered defeat at the hands of Alvarez on September 30. So technically, it boils down to two choices for Terence Crawford: go with the rematch or follow up with the undisputed Super Middleweight Champion. However, several experts have voiced concern about whether climbing three divisions up would be such a prudent decision for ‘Bud.’ Anyhow, if nothing else, he could always go back and pursue other divisional challengers.
