Just 3 days after outclassing Ricky Burns and becoming the new WBO lightweight champion, Terence Crawford was honored with the keys to the city in his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska. Furthermore, in recognition of his dedication and determination in becoming a true champion, the Omaha city council declared Tuesday, March 4th, 2014, as Terence “Bud” Crawford Day.

Crawford is the first boxer to bring back a title to Omaha in 100 years. “I never would’ve thought I would have the keys to the city! God has really blessed me,” he commented.
