Jaron ‘Boots’ Ennis won’t get shot at Crawford or Spence says Stephen Edwards

Via Adam Baskin: Coach Stephen ‘Breadman’ Edwards says Jaron ‘Boots’ Ennis won’t hit welterweight champions Errol Spence Jr or Terence Crawford because their promoters and managers won’t want to risk their fight with him and lost.

Furthermore, they didn’t want to help make Boots Ennis (29-0.27 KOs) a star at the expense of their boxer because he didn’t sign them.

For that reason, management for Ennis, 25, will need to find another way to make him a big star as they won’t get help from Crawford, Spence or any of the other handful of them. A -list fighters at 147.

Edwards suggests that Ennis could become a must-have for all belts to help increase his chances of winning one of his welterweight titles. However, that doesn’t mean he will stand a chance against IBF, WBA & WBC or WBO champions Crawford for the title as they will vacate and move up to 154, leaving Boots to fight for a title. blank in front of one of the little known people. candidates in the heavyweight rankings.

Boots can do what former welterweight champion Paul Williams did when he was knocked out by top boxers in the 147 lb. Williams moved up to 154 and was able to compete with the top players in that weight class, but unfortunately for him with less success than he achieved at 147.

“Probably not,” Stephen ‘Breadman’ Edwards said fight when asked if Jaron ‘Boots’ Ennis will ever get an A-rival at the rate his career is taking place.

“Check the eyeball. None of the managers or promoters have seen enough weakness for them to be really worth fighting for, and then you let him beat a guy, and you make him a star. If you don’t have a part of him, why would you make him a star?

“They have the same kind of abilities as Mark ‘Too Sharp’ Johnson and Roy Jones. Roy Jones is an Olympic athlete. He has HBO backing, so it’s a little different because he has a chance compared to Bernard Hopkins and James Toney. But maybe not [Ennis getting a shot against an A-level star]not in boxing today.

“If you were managing a guy or if you were promoting a guy, would you let your guy fight Ennis when your guy would probably be the underdog, and if he if not the weaker, there are only two gladiators in the world that I believe would love or even be with him, and that is Errol Spence and Terence Crawford.

“Both are older than him. So will you let your guy go near him? That’s where the business part of boxing gets people off the hook. I don’t think Terence or Errol are afraid of him.

“I just thought the power was like, ‘Why are we fighting this kid?’ He is [Boots Ennis] good and a lot younger than him, and then you’ll have someone who’s going to be a star in the next ten years. He is only 25 years old. His battle lasted only 30 seconds. He doesn’t get any wear and tear on him.

“So it’s not really worth them. It’s not a thing to be afraid of. That’s the business part of it. I’m sure they’ll fight him if they have to fight him, but I don’t think the kid will get shot. Honestly, not against an A-list name.

“I think he will win a title. In the end, he will fight for an empty title, but I don’t think he will win his title. It will be very difficult. I think they’re all going to be even money fights,” Edwards said when asked if he favors Spence over Boots Ennis.

“I think he and Errol will be in money, and I think he and Terence will be in money. I do. The odds makers know better and they know what they’re seeing. They know him [Boots Ennis] has not been proven.

“They’re not going to make him under three or four to one with anyone and have the whole of Philly, all the drug dealers.

“Everybody on the team will go out and bet millions of dollars on this kid, and he will win the fight as the four-on-one underdog against one of those guys, and they’re seven years older than him. to ten years old. ” Edwards said when referring to the 32-year-old Spence & the 35-year-old Crawford being significantly older than the 25-year-old Boots Ennis.

“I am not saying that they will win because I have too much respect for Bud and Errol, and just saying that Jaron will definitely beat them. But what I’m saying is that the people who make these odds, they’re not going to do it.

“I’m saying that if Boots ever fought those guys based on their recent form right now, they wouldn’t be a strong candidate to beat him because they can’t afford to lose money if they don’t. he wins because he does too. [good].

“He looked like, ‘Damn, he’s that good?’ So they don’t know enough yet. As time goes on, we will find out everything about him and no. But now, with his appearance, and he didn’t show any weakness.

“The worst thing you can say is [Thomas] Dulorme hit him with both his right hands, and he fell asleep. That’s the biggest thing you can say about him.

“[Sergey] Lipinets him with a shot. Alright. i think child [Ennis] may have lost two rounds in his entire career. I was there when he lost a few rounds. He fought four or six small innings in Philly.

“It will be very difficult. I don’t think he’s going to fight to be honest with you. No one has proven that they are better than him. I don’t know if he’s the best Korean martial artist in the world. He’s certainly not the most perfect.

“Bud & Errol is more successful than him, but no one has ever proven that he is not. Go hit the kid, and then prove that he’s too young or not. He said he was the best; he said he wanted the job, and no one could prove him wrong.

“I think he’s more successful than Boots,” Edwards said when asked if Spence was “better than Boots.” Edwards continued: “Better and more successful are two separate things.

“Who can beat whom and who has done more are two different things. Errol is older and he has a better chance of getting things done. There’s no one that Errol has beaten that I can look at and say, ‘Shoes can’t beat him.’

“So becoming more successful is like Anthony Dirrell and Caleb Plant when they fight. Anthony said, ‘My resume is so much better.’ Well, you’re older. You have the opportunity to do more. That doesn’t mean you’re better.

“That means you’ve got the opportunity to do more. So you are a two-time world champion. You have more to do than you did because you had the opportunity to do more. That doesn’t mean you’re better.

“It’s a little bit different. There are a lot of guys who have done more [heavyweight contender] Jared Anderson, but how many people can actually beat him? So Boots is kind of in that situation, so you have to be careful with your terminology.

“They have to prove that they are better than him [Ennis]. Not just Crawford & Spence. All welder parts. You don’t even see any veterans or former world champions going there. Why?

“He’s valuable, he’s been a world champion, he’s a boxer,” Edwards said when informed that former lightweight champion Sergey Lipinets had fought Jaron Ennis. “He is a true warrior. Lipinets is a real fighter. I won’t discredit him, but he’s not an A-list.

“You don’t see A-listers with him [Boots Ennis]. You know what their team is saying? We will not help advance their cause and let them carry us.

“When you are so talented, the business side kicks in. Unfortunately for Boots, his team has to find a way to make money for him. They have to figure out how to make him the star he deserves for these guys to fight.

“They have to put him in a position where he is the all-belt mandator. They had to put him in the corner of the market where people had no reason not to turn against him. His team has to work there. They have to find it.

“They have to figure out how to give the boys more money than they normally earn against him. I can’t get into that because I don’t know how the conversations with the sanctioning authorities are going,” Edwards said when asked if Boots Ennis would have been easier to go the WBO route after Crawford than the road. IBF or not because Spence is talking about gaining weight.

“Perhaps the WBO has its own ideas of who they want to be. Maybe he couldn’t ignore them. kid [Boots] have been a professional for six or seven years now. He is getting what he can get.

“IBF is here in Jersey. They enforce their rules, so maybe that’s what he’s thinking about. I don’t know how that happens with each sanctioning agency.

“Sometimes the sanctioning agencies don’t enforce what’s required. We’ve seen people who were #1 contenders for years and didn’t get there. Boots is ready now. 25 is not too young. It’s a myth that people make up so they don’t have to give young boys titles.

“It’s a t** cow. In other areas, you’re already great when you’re 25. Ray Leonard 25 years old and Tommy [Hearns] just a month away from turning 23. Ray Leonard won his title at 23 years old [Wilfredo] Benitez, 21 years old.

“Ali was 22 years old when she fought Sonny Liston. Just this era does it. ‘Oh my God, he’s 22 years old.’ This is just this era. Do you want 22 or 32? Floyd Mayweather was 21 years old when he fought Genaro Hernandez.

“Tito Trinidad was 20 years old when he won the world championship. That’s just what they say in this day and age. Boots could have fought for a world title two or three years ago. It’s something they say to slow people down,” Edwards said.
