Jaron Ennis signed a great victory during his fight disputed on the night from Saturday to Sunday against Sergey Lipinets. Impressively, the 23-year-old American won by knockout in the sixth round and continues his rise in welterweight.
While negotiations continue for a fantastic duel between Manny Pacquiao (WBA champion) and Terence Crawford (WBO champion), Jaron Ennis has been in the spotlight again this weekend at welterweight. The 23-year-old American dominated Kazakh Sergey Lipinets and gave him a terrible knockout in the sixth round.
Still undefeated in 28 fights (27 wins and a no-contest), “Boots” shone again and healed his statistics with a 25th success by KO. Largely domineering and master of the ring, Jaron Ennis hit his rival hard. A final sequence consisting of a right hook and a thundering uppercut to the chin ended the torment of Lipinets.
“Oh dear, he killed him. He beat him up, inflamed John Dovi who was commenting on the fight for RMC Sport. Oh dear, it’s impressive!”
Ennis is getting closer to the top
Sparkling since his early career with the pros, Jaron Ennis had suffered a little setback during his previous fight against Chris van Heerden. Deprived of an IBO welterweight title which extended its arms to him following a no-contest for a cut from his opponent, “Boots” resumed his march forward. A rise in power carried out at an incredible speed.
Technically fine, spectacular and capable of brilliant blows to finish his fights, the phenomenon from Pennsylvania could quickly benefit from a chance for a major title in its category. Observers were expecting a lot from his first major test (and first main event) against Lipinetz. Jaron Ennis passed it with flying colors.
“Jaron Ennis is defensively ready for bigger fights,” enthused former IBF super-welterweight champion Raul Marquez. “An impressive performance.”
This show of strength against Lipinets could offer Ennis an opportunity against Errol Spence Jr or even against the winner of the potential clash between Terence Crawford and Manny Pacquiao.
