You can only be the guy who shows up 30 before open, stays 3-4 hours and get beat down for so long before you begin to earn your keep and that’s exactly what Crowley did. Before long when the demand for a forward pressing south paw who takes damage was in hot demand, Cody Crowley began to circulate.
The now, Top Rank signed boxer is not only getting fights but was on everybody’s radar and caught his biggest break yet when he was brought on to spar with Floyd Mayweather and went blow for blow for 38 minutes and never broke.
While the fights began coming, things were looking up but there was one more issue. The numbers weren’t adding up. To get on cards, Crowley was staring down the barrel of buying seats. When Crowley got on a card by selling $17,000 in tickets on his own it occurred to him that the fast track to the most success is his own promotion.
If selling out back home where you’ve now made a mega star out of yourself was what it took to fight anyway, why would you not want to bask in all the benefits as well?
Cody Crowley Boxing was born.
Now with his fifth event back in his hometown coming up, Crowley almost couldn’t be any bigger. The 26-year old is 5 years into his 10-year plan with a fight promotion of his own, Canadian admiration and an undefeated record.
Now with his first FIGHT PASS event less than a week away, he is, as promised, back. Ten years later.
