Terence Crawford won’t be doing any time in jail after all. ESPN reports that Crawford had his 90-day jail sentence overturned by Douglas County District Judge Kimberly Miller Pankonin, who said the jail sentence was too excessive. The original sentence stemmed from an incident at a local autobody shop where Crawford forcibly removed his car without paying the outstanding bill.

Crawford will still have to serve two years probation for the two misdemeanors he was found guilty of, though: disorderly conduct and damage to property. Crawford damaged the hydraulic life his car was on as he was taking it away and the incident was captured on surveillance tape.

Crawford is most recently coming off of a dominant third round knockout of Julius Indongo which aired on ESPN last weekend, becoming the undisputed 140lb champion — capturing all four major world titles.

There’s now nothing left for Crawford to accomplish in the junior welterweight division, so it’s expected that he’ll move up to welterweight where he’ll be targeting the winner of the Pacquiao-Horn rematch.
