In August 2017, Crawford had a short reign as the undisputed light welterweight champion, prior to moving up to welterweight. He was the most recent undisputed titlist at light welterweight since Kostya Tszyu in 2004. Crawford became the first male boxer to simultaneously hold all four major world titles in boxing (WBA, WBC, IBF and WBO) since Jermain Taylor in 2005, and is one of only six boxers in history to do so, together with Taylor, Bernard Hopkins (2004), Cecilia Brækhus (2014), Oleksandr Usyk (2018), and Claressa Shields (2019). Crawford was named Fighter of the Year by the Boxing Writers Association of America in 2014, and by ESPN in 2014 and 2017.
As of April 2019, Crawford is ranked as the world's second best active boxer, pound for pound, by The Ring; the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board (TBRB); BoxRec; and ESPN. He is also ranked as the world's second best active welterweight by The Ring, BoxRec and ESPN, and third by the TBRB.
Stylistically, Crawford is known for his exceptionally fast hand speed, punching power and defensive skills, as well as his ability to comfortably switch hit from orthodox to southpaw.
