When asked what the next steps were for “Boots,” Hearn said: “He has a mandatory (Cody Crowley), which purse bids were called last week. We wanna try and make that fight in Philadelphia, June, early July.” He continued: “Get that out of the way, then look for the big fight.” Speaking on the potential of Ennis, Hearn said: “I believe Boots will be undisputed at 147 if we can make it happen, and 54.” 

Hearn also tantalisingly added: “I think he can beat Terence Crawford. That’s the fight I want to push to make.”

Ennis Career Recapped
