The special feature, produced by Jackson Salisbury, showcases the triumphant parade down Farnam Street to Gene Leahy Mall at The RiverFront. Over 15,000 fans, hungry for a glimpse of their hometown hero, lined the streets, cheering and waving as Crawford made his way, flanked by his inner circle including head trainer Brian “Bo Mac” McIntyre, assistant trainers Esau Dieguez and Red Spikes, and B&B Sports Academy Executive Director and super middleweight Steven Nelson (19-0, 15 KOs).
Crawford’s pride in his city was visible as he declared, “Every time I step foot in the ring, I support and rep my city. I don’t look at it like I won, I feel like WE won… With hard work, dedication, and belief anything is possible, and I’m a living testimony to that.”
The two-time Undisputed Champion was joined by an impressive roster of local politicians and officials, including Nebraska Governor Jim Pillen, Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert, U.S. Senator Pete Ricketts, U.S. Congressman Don Bacon, and others. A highlight of the celebration was the city of Omaha’s announcement of their plan to sell land to Crawford for one dollar, allowing him to expand his B&B Sports Academy and continue his work supporting local youth.
Established by Crawford and McIntyre in 2014, the B&B Sports Academy serves as a beacon for children in North Omaha, providing a safe haven and fostering growth and development through sports.
The spectacular showdown between Spence and Crawford continues to resonate with fans and is available on demand on Paramount+ with the SHOWTIME plan. The thrilling buildup and aftermath were chronicled in three episodes of the award-winning series ALL ACCESS. Testifying to the historical weight and excitement surrounding the event, the ALL ACCESS episodes have collectively amassed millions of views on the SHOWTIME SPORTS YouTube channel alone.
