Photos: Terence Crawford Opens Retail Store in Omaha

Three-division World Champion Terence "Bud" Crawford put on a new hat this weekend, officially becoming a retail store owner. Crawford opened his long-awaited TBC Shop on Saturday in the heart of north Omaha, near his childhood stomping grounds.

Fans lined up around the block to get in to the newly renovated space, which features all of Crawford's signature apparel. Crawford certainly felt the love and support of his fans, who came from near and far to purchase the latest merchandise and get a moment with their champion.

The TBC Shop is located in north Omaha, an area of the city that once housed the historic district and is now enjoying a revitalization. The building was previously owned by the father of a childhood friend and Crawford has strong memories of the store that once sat in that location.

"I remember going to the store and buying chips, pops and candy on my way to play basketball. It was the neighborhood store," Crawford said. "When the building came up for sale, I thought I want to buy that building. I want to leave a legacy and help my community."

He hopes that his TBC Shop will create another bright spot in north Omaha and provide inspiration for the youngsters that now reside in the same neighborhood he grew up in. Even before Saturday's successful grand opening, Crawford has enjoyed solely positive feedback, particularly once he hung up the sign outside the building.

"I've had all positive reactions. Everybody's really pleased with what I'm doing. They've been asking about it for awhile," he said. "When I put the sign up, everyone knew whose building it was because they saw my logo."

A proud Omaha native, Crawford has consistently brought a positive spotlight to his hometown. A recipient of the Omaha Chamber of Commerce's 2019 Headliner Award, Crawford has brought the city more than one billion dollars of publicity through his six Nebraska fights and showcasing OMAHA across the waistband of his trunks in all of his bouts.
 
Crawford and his team will depart for New York this evening ahead of his December 14 bout with two-time Olympian Egidijus "Mean Machine" Kavaliauskas at Madison Square Garden. The fight will be Crawford's third defense of his WBO welterweight title, and will headline a stacked card airing immediately following the Heisman Trophy presentation on ESPN.

In-house fights are being lined up by Al Haymon. Don't you worry. Spence, Charlo and Wilder will retire undefeated. Smart move by then to re-sign with PBC. [QUOTE=royjonesjrKTFO;20244657]In-house fights are being lined up by old Bob. Don't you worry. Crawford…
