Ennis was recently upgraded from Interim IBF champion and defends his championship for the first time. Ennis has just signed to Matchroom Boxing who opted to showcase the champion in his hometown of Philadelphia, with the show aptly titled The Homecoming.

Ennis will face former EBU European Welterweight champion David Avanesyan. Avanesyan challenged WBO World champion Terence Crawford in 2022, losing by KO in the 6th round. The Armenian boxer has struggled for activity since then, competing just once in a small-hall UK show last December, picking up a routine stoppage victory.
