They Cannot Stop Jaron “Boots” Ennis from a Future Title Fight!

By Ken Hissner: Philadelphia’s unbeaten welterweight Jaron “Boots” Ennis is the most dangerous boxer in the world today! He is on the brink of a world title fight in 2022, and “they cannot stop him from a future title fight!”

Ennis is the No. 1 ranked IBF contender. Some time back, he was the No. 1 USBA contender, and not one contender, including Lamont Peterson, wanted to fight him. So the vacant title went to No. 2 and No. 7, and the winner going into the IBF world ratings.

This has got to stop NOW!

Per Ennis is WBA No. 3, WBC No. 6, WBO No. 5 and IBO No. 3. Ennis, 28-0 (26), should have his next fight in March or April on his usual promotion Showtime which should be his last fight before an approximate September world title fight.

Ennis should be in line to fight the winner of WBC and IBF World champion Errol “The Truth” Spence, Jr., 27-0 (21), of Desoto, Texas, and WBA Super World champion Cuban Yordenis “54 Milogras” Ugas, 27-4 (12), of Miami, Florida, in their upcoming unification bout.

WBO World champion Terence “Bud” Crawford, 38-0 (29), of Omaha, Nebraska, who in his last fight in November of 2021, stopped former champ Shawn “Showtime” Porter, the then No. 2 IBF contender.

Unbeaten Vergil Ortiz, Jr., 18-0 (18), of Grand Prairie, Texas, is ranked No. 1 in both WBC and WBO and would be an ideal future opponent for Ennis if he defeats WBO No. 3 ranked Michael “The Problem” McKinson, 21-0 (2), of the UK, on March 19th at the University of Southern California’s Galen Center in downtown Los Angeles.

Ennis is trained by teacher Derek “Bozy” Ennis, his father, and one of the best if not the best trainer-teacher in the world. His other two sons Derek “Pooh” Ennis, 24-5-1 (13), a former Pennsylvania and USBA Light Middleweight champion, along with his brother Farah “Silent Storm” Ennis, 22-2 (12), NABF Super Middleweight champion.

The elder Ennis also trains southpaw “The New” Ray Robinson, 24-3-2 (12), who on February 26th will return from inactivity, last fighting in June of 2019 with a draw decision against Josh “Pretty Boy” Kelley, of the UK, after a win lost to David Avenesyan now WBC No. 3.

Prior to that was another draw with Egidijus “Mean Machine” Kavaliauskas of Lithuania, who later in 2019 was stopped by WBO champion Crawford in December. In February of 2018, Robinson was stopped by Ugas.

An alternative possible bout for Ennis would be with either WBA No. 1 ranked Eimantas Stanionis, 13-0 (9), of Lithuania, or WBA World champion Radzhab “No Mercy” Butaev, 14-0 (11), of Russia. Other than these two, the winner of former WBA Super World champion and WBC No. 4 ranked Keith “One Time” Thurman, 29-1 (22), of Clearwater, Florida, and his Saturday opponent Mario “El Azteca” Barrios, 26-1 (17), of San Antonio, Texas.

In his last fight Ennis in October of 2021, he knocked out Thomas Dulorme, 25-5-1, at 1:49 of the first round. In his other fight in 2021, Ennis knocked out former IBF Light Welterweight champion Sergey “Samurai” Lipinets, 16-1-1, of Kazakhstan.

In his previous match, the eighteen fight stoppage streak of his ended with a first round no contest for the vacant IBO world title with Chris “The Heat” Van Heerden, 28-1-1, of Johannesburg, South Africa, at 2:39 of the first round when he was beating on Van Heerden with their heads clashed causing Van Heerden unable to continue after taking a beating from Ennis. He hasn’t fought since. His previous loss was to Spence in September of 2015, halting a nine-bout winning streak.
