A number of boxers have made an effort to become well-known beyond the world of combat sports throughout the year. Cardi B became a fan of Alycia Baumgardner after she defeated Mikaela Mayer. Conway The Machine became close friends with supper middleweight contender Caleb Plant. Not to be forgotten, Devin Haney made his debut on the 85 South Show, Ryan Garcia starred in a Gatorade commercial and Madonna was sitting ringside when Gervonta “Tank” Davis knocked out Rolly Romero in Brooklyn. Heading into the new year, Jaron “Boots” Ennis is poised to make his presence known in and out of the world of boxing. In order to do that, he must get his shot at either Terence Crawford or Errol Spence Jr.
Jaron “Boots” Ennis is confident that he’ll have the opportunity to fight unified welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr. in 2023. While preparing for his IBF Welterweight Championship Eliminator, Ennis said that he is optimistic about what the future holds.
“I feel like Errol Spence Jr. would fight me,” Ennis said, per Bad Left Hook.
“I’m going in there with the intention of winning the interim title, then fighting Errol next. I think we can make it happen.”
Before he can step foot in the ring with Spence Jr., he must get by Karen Chukhadzhian in an IBF Welterweight Championship on January 7, 2023 in Washington, D.C. With all that is at stake, Ennis does not believe he will look past his upcoming opponent.
“I haven’t watched any footage of my opponent but my team has been watching him,” Ennis said, per Bad Left Hook.
“We have a game plan for what he does well.”
