OMAHA — World boxing champion Terence Crawford has had his 90-day jail sentence overturned, though he still will be on two years' probation for two misdemeanors in connection with a 2016 disturbance at an Omaha body shop.

Douglas County District Judge Kimberly Miller Pankonin ruled on Thursday that the jail sentence imposed by a lower court judge was excessive.
Crawford was found guilty of disorderly conduct and damage to property for his actions in response to a billing dispute at the body shop where one of his vehicles was painted. Crawford was accused of damaging a hydraulic lift in an incident captured on a surveillance video.
Crawford knocked out Julius Indongo in Lincoln last Saturday to win all four world championship belts in the 140-pound division. With the win, Crawford, who is from Omaha, is now the only undisputed boxing champion in the world.
