Terence Crawford’s trainer rules out big fight, stating: “He brings nothing to the table”
Brian ‘BoMac’ McIntyre has revealed there are no plans in place for Terence Crawford to share the ring with Jaron Ennis.
Terence Crawford (40-0, 31KOs) firmly cemented himself as one of the world’s top pound-for-pound fighters after a spectacular performance against Errol Spence Jr. in July 2023.
‘Bud’ put on a clinic last July to take out former unbeaten unified welterweight champion Spence in nine rounds to become undisputed in a second weight class.
After such a dominant performance, it goes without saying that a growing number of fighters are interested in taking on the top American.
Newly instated IBF welterweight champion Jaron ‘Boots’ Ennis (31-0, 28 KOs) is just one fighter who has publicly expressed his desire to step into the ring and test his luck against the Nebraskan-born fighter.
Unfortunately for Ennis, Crawford seems to be holding out for a huge PPV showing, either in a rematch with Spence Jr. or a monumental showdown against undisputed super-middleweight king, Canelo Alvarez.
Crawford’s trainer, Brian ‘BoMac’ McIntyre, has quickly shot down young ‘Boots’ hopes for a showdown, in an interview with Fight Hub TV.
“No, he don’t bring nothing to the table, he got our leftovers. Why would Bud want to go backwards? I wouldn’t go backwards.
“Bud’s looking for bigger and better fights, so he can etch his name in the concrete forever.
“I really don’t look at none of the welterweights since we did clear the division out. I’m done.”
Despite a rematch clause in Crawford’s contract with Spence, it is looking increasingly unlikely that the fight will come to fruition in the near future due to injuries and negotiation difficulties.
Little headway has been made regarding talks, and with Spence currently sidelined due to cataract surgery, the 36-year-old welterweight king, who still holds the WBC, WBA, WBO titles, will likely have to look elsewhere if he wants to keep his gloves warm through 2024.
