Ennis vs. Crowley Could Happen In July After Matchroom Wins Purse Bids

Jaron Ennis vs. Cody Crowley looks closer to being made after Matchroom Boxing won the purse bid. 

Ennis and Crowley first had to agree a deal for the IBF Welterweight Title bout on March 1. That failed, while Crowley then pulled out of the purse bids for March 19. Now that the purse bids have been concluded, both fighters will earn a big sum. The terms mean Ennis will take an 85/15 split for facing his IBF welterweight mandatory, which equates to $3.315 million.

Crowley will take home $585,000, which is double the amount he would have got if he fought Souleymane Cissokho. If the fight goes ahead, Ennis could box in Philadelphia in July, his first bout in the area since beating Raymond Serrano in 2018. 

Ennis’ previous bout was a KO win over Roiman Villa in July last year. Meanwhile, Crowley’s last fight was a majority decision win over Abel Ramos. Ennis’ recent Matchroom deal appears to have paid off, with a big purse for facing a mandatory.
