Is Terence Crawford vs. Israil Madrimov official despite rumors suggesting potential bout with Jaron ‘Boots’ Ennis?

Terence Crawford is one of the most dominant boxers right now. He is a three-division champion with multiple individual records and is also the current pound-for-pound best boxer in the world. According to reports, the World Boxing Organization has finally agreed to book Terence Crawford vs. Israil Madrimov for August 3. This will be an interim fight for the super-welterweight world title.

Israil Madrimov is going to compete in the United States for the very first time. Madrimov from Uzbekistan holds an impressive record of 10 wins, 0 losses, and 7 knockout finishes. He won the junior middleweight title by defeating Magomed Kurbanov in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

However, reports also suggest that Jaron ‘Boots’ Ennis had a scheduled fight against Terence Crawford. Suadi Royal Court member Turki Alalshikh is really interested in booking the Terence Crawford vs. Jaron Ennis fight. The boxing faithful have been waiting for this fight to unfold for ages and this time, with a little help from Saudi leadership, it can become a reality.

Although Terence Crawford will most likely fight Israil Madrimov on August 3, the fight against ‘Boots’ is still a possibility. If Crawford manages to defeat Madrimov and become the champion, the next fight most definitely points in the direction of Jaron ‘Boots’ Ennis. However, Crawford’s lack of competitive activity throughout the year could potentially delay the fight. So, ultimately, a lot of factors need to be in place in order to make this fight happen and then it might take place in 2025.
