Crawford, if you’re your own boss, why didn’t you call us? – top prospect


One of the leaders of the P4P rating, American welterweight champion Terence Crawford (38-0, 29 KOs) failed to agree on a unification fight with compatriot Errol Spence (28-0, 22 KOs), who holds three division titles. And instead, in December, he will defend the WBO belt with Russian David Avanesyan (29-3-1, 17 KOs).

Champion’s Decision
disappointed Bosie Ennis – father/coach of US top contender Jaron Ennis (29-0, 27 KOs): “Terence, did I get you right? Are you your own boss and can fight whoever you want to fight? But if so, why did you choose Avanesyan? You could have chosen us or Virgil Ortiz.”

Earlier, Terence’s sidekick said Ortiz was pulled out of the fight. However, Virgil denies this.

It seems to Bosie Ennis that the problem is still in Crawford: “A lot of things are said. But from what I’ve heard, Terence didn’t really want to fight Spence. And, in my opinion, that’s how it was. What exactly did I hear? That the contract for the fight was agreed. That Crawford only needed to sign the contract.”

Bosi is surprised by the actions of Crawford, because he had previously claimed that he would immediately accept the fight with Ennis or Ortiz: “He publicly announced that he would give the go-ahead for a fight with us. He said he would give the go-ahead “in the twinkling of an eye.” He knows that we will accept a fight with anyone – with him, with Spence, with Ugas, with Ortiz or Thurman. With any top division. All you have to do is declare it. And we would be right here. Because we, unlike him, will actually take the fight “in the blink of an eye.”

It seems that after Crawford, Spence will fight in December. There is a date and a rival. Terence claims that he found some investors who “offered both of them $25 million”, but Al Haymon thwarted everything. Spence responded to Crawford’s accusations. He has solid arguments. Terence did not stop there: you have never seen him so angry.
