Philly boxer Jaron Ennis becomes world champion after IBF strips Terrence Crawford of welterweight title

For Philly sports fans eagerly anticipating Jaron Ennis’s upcoming fight this month, they might be pleasantly disappointed because Ennis is currently focused on his initial title defense. The Germantown boxer, Jaron Ennis, recently clinched the welterweight championship on Thursday without stepping into the ring for it. This unexpected turn of events transpired as the previous champion, Terrence Crawford, had his title stripped from him, failing to meet Ennis (31-0, 28 knockouts) for a mandatory defense.

In the realm of sports betting, the landscape is shifting as Ennis, now the welterweight champion, is gearing up for an unpredictable journey. Crawford (40-0, 31 KOs), still holding three 147-pound belts, lost his status as the undisputed welterweight champion due to the International Boxing Federation's decision. The likelihood of a rematch with Errol Spence looms for Crawford, diverting attention from a potential showdown with Ennis, who seeks to solidify his standing as a true champion after inheriting the title.

Despite the power befitting a champion, Jaron Ennis finds himself in a seemingly powerless position, determined to validate his worthiness for the bestowed title. The lingering phrase "given to him" continues to echo, but Ennis remains a fighter with an indomitable spirit that beckons challenges from those in the sports betting arena. In a bold move to assert himself, he called out Crawford, urging him to reclaim his title and asserting, "Come get your belt back if you think you're the best in the world." The unfolding narrative in sports betting circles now includes the unpredictable dynamics of Ennis's quest to redefine his championship journey.
