    JARON ENNIS is quickly punching his way to the top of the boxing world as one of the hottest prospects in the sport. Only 24, the welterweight contender has 28 wins, with 26 knockouts and boasts a dazzling, switch-hitting style yet to be figured out. 11Jaron Ennis is quickly punching his way to the top of the boxing worldCredit: ESTHER LIN/SHOWTIME 11The American is one of the hottest prospects in the sportCredit: ESTHER LIN/SHOWTIME After just five years as a professional, already Ennis has put the game on notice and won praise from all corners, including boxing royalty.

Ennis tells SunSport: “Everything is all the same to me, there’s no pressure.  “I’ve been around the game since I was born, basically.

    TERENCE CRAWFORD has moved on from a blockbuster fight with Errol Spence Jr, insisting their proposed welterweight title unification bout is 'behind' him.

    The potential welterweight clash between Errol Spence Jr. and Terence Crawford has become the talk of the town. Boxing enthusiasts, experts, and many fighters want to see them collide at least once. However, the fight isn’t reaching terms largely due to to Spence Jr’s purse disagreements. Recently, Joe Joyce’s manager, Sam Jones, shared his opinion on whether the fight should be a 50-50 purse or more amount should be allotted to either fighter. Speaking to Behind The Gloves, he said, “Yeah, I do believe that,” He even compared this fight to that of Joshua vs Fury, where the fighters have agreed to a 50-50 split. “Joshua could say ‘Well I want a bigger (paycheck),’ even though Joshua’s lost to Ruiz, he can do that but Joshua was saying ‘no’. Look, they both come together and the deal I understand is 50-50, everything down the middle, that’s what those two guys (Crawford and Spence) should do,” Jones added.

    The feud between Errol Spence Jr. and Terence Crawford is prolonged and uncommon. But, the rivalry between the two reached another level as Spence fired shots at both Crawford and his promoter Bob Arum. Recently, the Top Rank CEO was in a chat alongside The 3 Knockdown Rule, when he detailed his point on why the Spence vs Crawford fight isn’t reaching the squared circle. “I talked to Al Haymon, he’s amenable to the fight. Spence is the obstacle. Spence throws out numbers and percentages. We believe Crawford will beat him, unfortunately, Spence believes the same. Don’t blame Haymon, blame Spence.” said Arum. Michael Benson, an editor at talkSport, tweeted this statement by Arum which later caught Spence’s eye. The welterweight champion then fired shots at Arum. He wrote, “lien a** bob strikes again.” Arum accused ‘The Truth’ of dodging the epic encounter with his undefeated boxer, Terence Crawford. The Top Rank supremo even tried getting in touch with Al Haymon, Spence Jr.’s manager, who was responsive enough to stage this fight. But the big-wig promoter feels it’s not Spence...
    Boxing was one of the most famous sports in the world for a long time. However, the trend has slowly changed in recent years. The sport has deteriorated in all aspects like the numbers, fights, and in the combat sports sphere. Sports like MMA have slowly captured the attention of fans and the majority will prefer to tune in to a high-profile UFC fight. So how did this change come about in one of the greatest sports? Floyd Mayweather’s role in the changing trend Kevin Iole from Yahoo Sports wrote a piece in which he fantastically analyzed this. He claimed that Floyd Mayweather was one of the first high-profile fighters to influence the shift. In the previous era of boxing, we would see big fights every month, if not more. He wrote, “I think if you added up the viewership of, say, Spence, all of his fights combined wouldn’t hit 93 million. Ali did it in one night. It’s evidence of how far boxing has fallen. Something drastic needs to happen, and soon, or it’s going to be irreversibly damaged, if...
    Errol Spence Jr. made a victorious return to the sport of boxing, defeating Danny Garcia, but not all were pleased with the impending aftermath.  After coming off a 15-month layoff and a nearly fatal car accident, welterweight boxing champion Errol Spence Jr. boxed impressively to defeat former champion, Danny Garcia. Spence’s victory looked like a feel-good comeback story on its surface, but many boxing fans and pundits walked away with a bad taste in their mouths. The 80s saw several groundbreaking fights like Sugar Ray Leonard and Marvin Hagler. Yes, they were aggressive in making that fight happen, but it’s often public clamor that makes fights happen. Some fights are missed, like Deontay Wilder vs. Anthony Joshua, but eventually many of the best matchups like Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao are made because the money is too good to pass up. Even then, a matchup of legendary headliners doesn’t guarantee a fan-friendly fight. So how does boxing make its move back into sporting prominence? Again, it’s complicated. Good matchmaking is part of it, but Spence vs. Crawford wouldn’t bring boxing...
    WBC and IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr is all for fighting the best in the division. The undefeated champion is set to return to the ring for the first time since his horrific car crash. He is set to face Danny Garcia on December 5 with both his belts on the line. Despite this, his focus has already shifted to his fight after the Garcia fight.

When asked about Manny Pacquiao and Terence Crawford, the champion gave his honest opinion. He said, “Line ‘em up. Line ‘em up. Y’all already know who to talk to. The one-person y’all got to talk to is Al Haymon. You have one person to talk...
    BOXING fans were missing out on some of the biggest fights possible long before the Covid-19 pandemic struck and 2020 will soon reveal whether that gutting trend will continue. The coronavirus fallout, the travel restrictions, the fan ban snatching around 40 per cent of fighter earnings and the lack of a vaccine all point to the biggest match-ups getting delayed. 11Anthony Joshua will face Bulgarian hardman Kubrat Pulev on December 12Credit: News Group Newspapers Ltd But top UK promoters Eddie Hearn and Frank Warren have suggested the new streamlined sport will encourage fewer tune-up and learning fights, so the must-see bouts get made. Vasiliy Lomachenko and Teofimo Lopez showed their prize fighting colleagues that the hurt business can battle on by partaking in a behind-closed-doors thriller, without even a pay-per-view windfall in the US. And now the likes of Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury and Canelo Alvarez have to follow suit. Here, SunSport dream up the seven best clashes we can hope to see in 2020 once the world has adapted to the new rules and regulations. 11Tyson Fury holds the...
    Terence Crawford just beat Kell Brook with a fourth-round TKO in their clash for Crawford’s WBO Welterweight Title. With that win, Crawford has extended his professional boxing record to 37-0 and is slowly climbing up the ranks as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters around. However, Crawford’s record is sometimes considered padded by many people. People he hasn’t fought often say Crawford ducks big names in favour of more winnable fights. A fighter that has often said this is Danny Garcia. After Crawford’s win over Brook, his manager Bob Arum decided to take open shots at Garcia and Errol Spence Jr., Garcia’s next opponent. Bob Arum: “Errol Spence and Garcia are fighting Dec 5th. If they really wanna make a big PPV, I’ll put Terence Crawford in with both of them and he’d beat both on the same night. Spence will try to avoid Crawford as long as he can ‘cause he knows he can’t beat Crawford.” — Michael Benson (@MichaelBensonn) November 15, 2020 Spence and Garcia are not considered big draws due to their relatively reserved nature. As a...
    ERROL SPENCE JR is lining up Terence Crawford and Manny Pacquiao next year - in a bid to become undisputed champion and boxing's No1. The WBC and IBF welterweight champion last year unified the titles after beating Shawn Porter. 4Errol Spence Jr wants to fight for all the welterweight titles Credit: EPA A month later the unbeaten Texan was involved in a horrific car crash, as his Ferrari flipped. He came out unscathed, but his next fight which was set for January against Danny Garcia was cancelled. Spence, 30, is now lined up to face Garcia, 32, on December 5, but hopes to face Crawford, 33, and Pacquiao, 41, afterwards in unification bouts. And he believes an undisputed title reign cements his place as pound-for-pound No1 - surpassing Canelo Alvarez or Vasyl Lomachenko. Spence told SunSport: "When I become undisputed welterweight champion of the world, I'll have to be No1 in the sport.  "It would make sense, why wouldn't I be? "With the kind of names that are at 147lb for me to...
