"I'm very excited to sign with Golden Boy as they are a Heavy Hitter in the boxing business," said Franchon Crews-Dezurn. "Not only will I be working with legendary fighters and now business men like Oscar De La Hoya and Benard Hopkins but being on the roster with vast talents like Canelo gives me something to aspire to as a renaissance woman. You can see Golden Boy believes in women's boxing. They gave me my first shot at a title on national TV."
 
"I look forward to putting on some great fights in the future for the fans while building my legacy. I'm not huge on birthdays [which is on June 13], but this is the best gift a girl could ask for which is the opportunity to live out my dream and create HERstory! Lastly for the people who think I just came out of nowhere and became a world champion, The Heavy-Hitting Diva is here to make believers."
