By Sam Volz: Jaron ‘Boots’ Ennis won’t be fighting on the undercard on the Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis vs. Ryan Garcia card on April 22nd, as rumored to be taking place.

According to Derek ‘Bozy’ Ennis, his son ‘Boots’ (30-0, 27 KOs) will be headlining his own card in late May or early June, likely in Atlantic City or Philadelphia.

While it would be nice for the 25-year-old Ennis to get some exposure by fighting on another Tank Davis undercard like he did last January when he fought in the chief support spot against Karen Chukhadzhian, Bozy says Jaron is going to be headlining his card.

Bozy didn’t say who Jaron will be fighting, but hopefully, it’s not another runner as he fought on the Tank vs. Hector Luis Garcia card on January 7th.

Jaron’s promoters did him no favors by scheduling him to fight an opponent like Chukhadzhian because that guy was in survival mode the entire fight. Matching Boots Ennis against fighters like that will ultimately erode his popularity.

Boots is still waiting for his title shot against IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr, but the International Boxing Federation still hasn’t ordered the fight. It’ll be interesting to see how long the IBF will let Spence go without defending against Boots.

When they eventually do get around to ordering the Spence-Ennis fight, it’ll be interesting to see if Spence vacates or chooses to defend the belt. With all the waiting that Ennis has been doing, it would be a disappointment if Spence vacates.

“No, that’s not true. It would have come to me first. If it came to anybody, it would have came to me first,” said Derek ‘Bozy’ Ennis to YSM Sports Media when asked if Boots Ennis will be fighting on the undercard of Gervonta Davis vs. Ryan Garcia on April 22nd.

End of May or the beginning of June, something like that,” said Bozy about when Jaron Ennis will be fighting next. “No, I’m looking for him to do the main event, probably in Atlantic City or here in Philly.

“I like AC because when people do come over here, they can go to the casinos and play and stay overnight with their families. It used to be. I don’t know, but we’re trying to bring it back. I don’t know what happened. It died down.

“People started going to Vegas, California, and stuff like that,” said Bozy when asked why the promoters stopped staging fights in Atlantic City, which was previously thought of as the mecca of boxing years ago.
