It is no secret that athletes’ personalities change with the advent of wealth in their lives. However, ‘Bud,’ has not succumbed to the vices that may come with extraordinary wealth. Moreover, he does not shy away from admitting it. In a recent Instagram story, he revealed that his persona before and after garnering abundant wealth has remained constant.

While posting a selfie of himself in a car, he captioned the post by stating, “Million dollars didn’t change me. I am still that same guy I was before.” In addition, the story also featured American Rapper Lil Boosie‘s song, ‘Rain.’

It would be safe to say that Crawford values his morals above and beyond wealth. However, at the same time, he also prioritizes money to a great extent in life, and in many ways is the reason behind his will to compete in the ring.

Before his fight against Spence Jr, the champion went to Mike Tyson‘s podcast, ‘Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson.’ During their conversation, Crawford revealed that the motivation for him to compete is money and not prestige. That is because he does not seek validation from fans regarding his boxing skills. Reflecting on the same, he stated, “I always wanted the money. You can keep the fame; you keep all that,” he adds, “You ain’t gotta tell me I am greatest ever. I know I am great in my heart. So you ain’t gotta tell me nothing, just give me the cheque.”

This dynamic is quite intriguing to see and gives a great insight into the lesser-known side of Crawford’s mindset.
