Terence Crawford's 90 Day Jail Sentence is Overturned

Undisputed junior welterweight world champion Terence Crawford has had his 90-day jail sentence overturned, though he still will be on two years' probation for two misdemeanors in connection with a 2016 disturbance at an Omaha body shop.

Douglas County District Judge Kimberly Miller Pankonin ruled on Thursday that the jail sentence imposed by a lower court judge was excessive.

Crawford was found guilty of disorderly conduct and damage to property for his actions in response to a billing dispute at the body shop where one of his vehicles was painted. Crawford was accused of damaging a hydraulic lift in an incident captured on a surveillance video.

Crawford knocked out Julius Indongo in Lincoln last Saturday night in three rounds to unify the IBF, WBA, WBC, WBO world championship belts in the 140-pound division.

Crawford is now making the decision on whether or not to move up to the welterweight division or remain at 140-pounds and defend his unified crown.

IN OTHER NEWS: William Hill are starting to see large five, six and even seven figure wagers on Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather to beat ‘The Notorious’ Conor McGregor in the mega-fight in Las Vegas on Saturday night.  The biggest bet was taken overnight when a punter placed a $1.2 Million bet on the Money man at odds of 1/5 – and stands to pocket $240,000 should the unbeaten king of boxing prevail.
However, the big bets only tell one side of the story. ‘The Notorious’ was initially a 7/1 shot to beat ‘Money’ Mayweather (1/16) when William Hill first opened their betting market in December 2016. Since then the weight of money on the Irishman has seen his odds tumble down to 10/3, while Mayweather’s odds have drifted from 1/16 to 2/9 with William Hill.
The bookmaker has reported over seventy-six percent of bets have been placed on McGregor, ten percent on Mayweather and fourteen percent on the draw – with the industry estimating a £250M pay out should the Irishman beat the American.
McGregor, the self-dubbed ‘Mystic Mac’, has predicted he will win the fight within four rounds – which can be backed at odds of 14/1. 
William Hill are offering lots of special markets through their #YOURODDS offering. Some of the selected ones are 8/1 Either fighter to win by disqualification, 20/1 McGregor not to land a punch in the fight, 25/1 McGregor to land a head kick on Mayweather,  80/1 McGregor to KO Mayweather inside 60 seconds.
“This is a fight for the ages. The hype and the money being bet on the bout is unparalleled and everyone seems to have an opinion on the outcome”, said William Hill spokesman Tony Kenny.  The big money says Mayweather but the number of bets says McGregor. It’s going to be fascinating to see how the betting odds evolve in the hours and minutes before the fight.”

[QUOTE=Sheldon312;17985005]Indongo was a bum. Even that shot Gatti that Floyd fought would've schooled that bastard. And what does fighting in southpaw have to do with anything. Would Marvin Hagler beat Roy Jones Jr? I think not. Call me when Crawford…
