Crawford Dismisses Ennis In Favor Of “Mega Fight” With Canelo

Terence Crawford has no plans of fighting Jermell Charlo or Jaron Ennis, with the focus being on Canelo Alvarez

Following his win over Errol Spence Jr. to become the first undisputed welterweight champion of the four-belt era, Crawford set his sights on facing Charlo. At the time, the latter was undisputed at 154 pounds. And yet, that has now changed. Charlo no longer holds the WBO and IBF belts. Tim Tszyu became the full WBO champion after Charlo was stripped for not fighting the Australian, who was his mandatory, as he took a fight with Canelo instead. As for the IBF title, Charlo opted to vacate with suggestions that a move up to middleweight could occur. 

Elsewhere, a fight with Ennis has been dismissed by Crawford. The former became the full IBF champion after Bud was stripped for failing to face his then-mandatory. But given that Crawford was contractually required to face Spence, who exercised the rematch, the fight could not be made. And looking ahead, Crawford had his eyes only on Spence and Canelo. 

“Listen, like I said. Jaron is in one place, and I’m in another. I’m looking for mega fights right now, and right now, that’s not a mega fight. That’s my standpoint on it. I’m looking to fight guys like Canelo Alvarez. That’s pretty much it, man, and a rematch with Spence, and that’s it.

“That’s over with for me. Man, that would be lovely. That would definitely be lovely. Charlo isn’t a mega-fight. His last performance [against Alvarez] wasn’t a great performance. I’m not gonna rule it out. Charlo still got two belts, he’s still the champion but right now, I’m not looking to fight Charlo,” Crawford
