Jaron Ennis Excited for Homecoming Bout with David Avanesyan

In his next tour of duty, IBF welterweight champion Jaron “Boots” Ennis (31-0, 28 KO’s) will face challenger David “Ava” Avanesyan (30-4-1, 18 KO’s). Heading into this duel, Ennis is the heavy favorite to prevail, yet he will have the often tricky situation of fighting at home. For this prizefight, his first of the year, Boots is headlining in the first major boxing event staged at the Wells Fargo Center located in Philadelphia.

Historically speaking, countless fighters have turned in subpar performances trying to show out for their hometown fans or simply not being as focused as they should be. Personally, Ennis doesn’t feel that this will be a problem as he shared in a recent Q&A with The Only Kayla.

“I was able to have me fighting at the Wells Fargo Center, make me the main event and it’s a blessing. I can’t wait! I’m ready to put on a beautiful show, make a big statement, get a knockout in front of my friends and family. And it’s history right here, this is like the first real fight at the Wells Fargo Center.”


Aside from the location of the event, there will no doubt be a great deal of attention placed on how Boots performs against Avanesyan. This is due to him being a common opponent with two-division undisputed champion Terence Crawford. Crawford stopped Ava in the sixth round, back on December 10, 2022. Ennis has relentlessly called for a battle with Crawford even though those efforts have gone unheard.

In fact, Crawford has exited the division and will be taking on WBA super welterweight champion Israil Madrimov on August 3. Regardless of this, there will still be a great deal of chatter comparing the two showings. Provided that Boots can stop Avanesyan faster than Crawford, that would only serve to increase the tremendous buzz already surrounding his name.

First things being first however, before any wins can be assigned to Jaron Ennis, he has got to handle business in his eagerly anticipated hometown fight. If victorious in impressive fashion, he will have the additional feather in his cap to keep calling for the bigger names in the sport .
