Crawford Brushes Off The Chances Of An Ennis Fight

The undisputed welterweight champion of the world Terence Crawford is not looking to face Jaron Ennis anytime soon. 

Bud’s ninth-round stoppage of Spence made history, as Crawford became undisputed in a second-weight class following his achievements at 140 pounds.

The result left Spence with a lot to think about, while for Ennis, it opened up more doors as he became the IBF mandatory to Crawford.

Ennis defended his IBF interim belt when he stopped Roiman Villa in the tenth round during his last fight. However, the chances of Crawford vs. Ennis happening next are slim.

The ‘Truth’ expressed his desire to have another crack at Crawford, but at junior middleweight. Much in the same way, Crawford was not opposed to doing it at that weight class. 

After all, Crawford was named the super ‘WBO’ welterweight champion. This has now made him mandatory for Tim Tszyu’s WBO belt at 154 if he does move up.

The Australian will get the belt after Jermell Charlo’s fight with Canelo Alvarez on September 30th, 2023. 

The WBO made the decision to strip Charlo after he failed to face Tszyu, who was his mandatory.

Therefore, Crawford has plenty of incentives to move up to 154, rather than face Ennis at 147. 

 “That (fight with Ennis) can happen, cuz we at the same weight class, but you know, at this point in time, I’m looking for bigger and better opportunities, like Charlo,” Crawford
