Jaron Ennis Was Willing To Fight Terence Crawford

Jaron Ennis never got a phone call from Terence Crawford, despite Crawford stating that he entertained all the big names for his recent BLK Prime PPV, in which he stopped David Avanesyan in six rounds. Ennis wants answers.

“I don’t know how my name didn’t come up because I’m ranked higher than the guy he’s fighting,” Ennis told Keith Idec of “I don’t know what he’s saying, but we love that fight. We’ve been asking for it, so I’m ready. I’ve been ready.”

Ennis, who is one of the most exciting young fighters in the sport, only got to fight a round and a half in 2022, which is a shame, and more so Ennis respects the three-division world champion and undisputed 140 lbs champion Crawford, hence why he wants to share the ring with him.

“If he ain’t got nobody else to fight, he gonna have to fight me or one of these other young, hungry people,” Ennis said. “Who else is he gonna fight? What is he gonna stay at 147 and fight Keith Thurman? Or somebody else, like Ugas? There’s nobody else there. There’s only young, hungry lions. Unless he’s gonna move up.”

It was announced this week that Ennis would fight on January 7th against Karen Chukhadzhian, for the IBF welterweight interim world title in a Showtime Pay-Per-View in the co-main event spot at Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C.

“I think people understand that it’s not my fault,” Ennis said. “Everybody know that I’m calling everybody out and everybody know I wanna fight these guys. I just know that 2023 is gonna be my time to be a world champion.”
