Jaron Ennis To Move To 154lbs, Eyes Fights Against Errol Spence Jr And Terence Crawford
Jaron Ennis (28-0, 26 KOs) is set to make some huge decisions for the evolution of his professional boxing career.
The undefeated American will move to 154lbs to target a fight with Errol Spence Jr or Terence Crawford in the future.
The American boxer will be returning to action this Saturday against Custio Clayton in the eliminator for the IBF title. Spence is the current holder of the IBF, WBA, and WBC straps whereas Crawford holds the WBO title.
“Boots” is seen by many boxing experts as the biggest threat to these two titleholders. In fact, the 24-year-old is keen to follow them to super-welterweight if necessary.
“My destiny is not controlled by either Spence or Crawford. It doesn’t matter if any of the two want to stay in the division and fight me. It would be overwhelming to take the belts away from them. However, if I have to fight for a vacant belt, I’ll fight either Spence or Crawford at 154 pounds. They are close to that figure,” Ennis said.
The Ennis-Clayton battle will take place at Carson, California.
The Philadelphia native is ranked in the top 5 across all the governing bodies as he plans to take everyone’s breath away on Saturday.
