Fighter Biography

Franchon Crews-Dezurn is a woman of many talents including singing, designing and boxing. She became interested in boxing in 2003, looking at it as a good workout to get in shape in order to pursue a singing career. She quickly fell in love with the sport and won the Maryland state title in her first bout in April 2004.

Before turning professional, Crews-Dezurn flourished as an amateur, competing at the national and international levels. During her 12-year amateur boxing career, Crews-Dezurn was an eight-time US Open National Champion, a four-time Pan Am Continental Champion, a two-time National PAL Champion, and a two-time US Olympic Team Alternate.

In 2016, Crews-Dezurn made her professional debut against two-time Olympic gold medalist Claressa Shields. Though she lost the close battle, Crews-Dezurn would score three more victories before capturing the WBC Super Middleweight World Title via 10-round majority decision against Maricela Cornejo.

Crews-Dezurn signed with Golden Boy in June 2019, and in that same month she defeated Kayla Williams by a fifth-round knockout in a non-title bout.

Crews-Dezurn then defeated Alejandra Jimenez on the September 2019 undercard of Munguia vs. Allotey at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, CA, where she unified the WBC and WBO Super Middleweight World Titles.
In January 2020, she fought in a controversial battle against Alejandra Jimenez. Though originally suffering a split decision loss, it was later changed to a no decision by the Texas commission after a positive test for a banned substance from Jimenez.

Then, Crews-Dezurn was rightfully reinstated as the WBC and WBO Super Middleweight World Champion, and she eager to defend her belts against a top opponent.
