Jaron Ennis Frustrated By Fighters Ducking Him

Jaron Ennis says that he is being ducked by those in the 147 division.

Ennis, the IBF Welterweight Champion, will box Davis Avanesyan on July 13. It is in Ennis’ hometown of Philadelphia and his first fight since signing with Matchroom Boxing. And yet, Boots has not had the biggest fights. A fight with Terence Crawford never happened as Bud chased the Errol Spence Jr. rematch but then moved up to 154.

Since Ennis was the interim champion, Crawford was stripped, giving Boots the full title. A bout with WBC Welterweight Champion Mario Barrios also failed. The fight would pit two fighters in their prime in a huge unification fights. However, Barrios is looking likely to fight Manny Pacquiao. A fight with Pacman would be more lucrative. But if he secures a dominant win over Avanesyan, Ennis wants the biggest fights.

“I am the only name that nobody calls at 147. I don’t think no man is scared of another man, but when you hear other people call everyone out, they don’t call me out. The only people that really call me out is somebody that’s irrelevant that nobody cares about. I want to have a great legacy and beat all of the best guys. I’m just getting started. I feel like I am getting in my prime. I know I can beat anybody they put in front of me. After this fight, I want to face everyone who has a belt. I want them all. I’ll fight anybody. I don’t care who it is,” Ennis said
