Terence Crawford has expressed disinterest in fighting Jaron ‘Boots’ Ennis. Crawford stated that he is specifically looking for mega-fights at this stage of his career. Terence revealed his plans to FightHype where he said:

Jaron is in one place, I'm in another. I'm looking for mega fights right now, and right now that's not a mega fight. That's my standpoint on it.

One of Crawford’s desired opponents is Canelo Alvarez. He has openly expressed interest in a bout with the boxing superstar. Crawford was firm in his lack of interest in matchups that do not meet the criteria of being significant and high-profile. Canelo Álvarez and Terence Crawford are accomplished boxers in their respective weight classes. However, Canelo had stated earlier this year that a fight with Terence Crawford doesn’t make sense at the moment.

Meanwhile, Crawford’s other interest is a reach with Errol Spence Jr.. The initial fight showcased Crawford’s dominance, leading to Spence’s first career loss. Crawford secured a ninth-round technical knockout. This marked the first time a male boxer had won undisputed championships in two weight classes with all four belts. Spence triggered a rematch clause, indicating a forthcoming rematch between the two fighters.
