After his stunning win over Errol Spence Jr back in July, there are few who believe there are any fighters in the welterweight division capable of defeating undisputed champion Terence Crawford.

However, former 147lbs belt holder Danny Garcia has named the rising star in the division who he believes could get the better of ‘Bud.’

When asked by Fight Hub TV if Jaron Ennis was capable of getting the better of ‘Bud,’ Garcia came in with some high praise for the Philadelphia star.

“Definitely [Ennis can beat Crawford]. He’s got all the tools and he’s got the work ethic for sure. Right now for him, it’s just about timing, because he’s ready.”

“I always tell people he’s like a young hungry lion sitting on the side of the road, waiting for somebody to slip up. His time is real soon though, and once his time comes, he’s going to be at the top for a long time.”

‘Boots’ retained his IBF interim world title with arguably a career best performance against Roiman Villa earlier this month, becoming the first man to stop the game Colombian at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.

It does look uncertain as to whether he will ever land a shot at Terence Crawford, however, with the 35 year old set to move up to light middleweight for a rematch with Spence, after ‘The Truth’ activated a contractual rematch clause.

If Crawford emerges victorious again, it is difficult him returning back down to 147lbs, with the lure of world titles at higher weight classes – plus a potential super fight with Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez.

Terence Crawford recently fired shots at Garcia and Thurman after his recent win against Errol Spence Jr. Subsequently, Crawford stated that they did not want to fight him before and changed their stance after his win. Crawford has climbed to the top and might be the best boxer in the world. Subsequently, Garcia responded to Crawford by saying, “I’m rich, I don’t need to fight you.”

Hence, Garcia watered down Crawford’s claim by asserting that he was wealthy and did not need to compete with Crawford. Garcia’s claim is true, as the former two-division world champion has a net worth of $8 Million. However, it may not be better than Crawford’s. Crawford earned the biggest payday of his career against Errol.

However, Garcia could still retire and easily live the rest of his life in peace and does not need to fight Crawford. Hence, the much-anticipated fight between Crawford and Garcia might never become a reality. Fans would have liked the fight.
