Jaron Ennis is looking to make a statement
Welterweight Jaron “Boots” Ennis (25-0, 23ko) is looking to make a statement in his upcoming fight against Juan Carlos Abreu (23-5-1, 21ko). The young rising star understands this is the time to put all the top welterweight champions on notice.
The 23-year-old fighter from Philadelphia has been catching the eyes of the boxing community with his immense knockout power. He is now looking to make a move coming off a long layoff due to COVID-19. The young fighter believes he will be the first to knock out his Dominican challenger on fight night.
When asked about his approach to this fight, Ennis acknowledged that we will see a different fighter.
“We have been working a lot of different things in camp, and Saturday night I am going to show you guys what I’ve been working on.”
“Whatever he brings, we will be ready, like I said, we prepare all the way around. I am going to go out there, do my thing, be smart, have some fun, and get that stoppage at the end of the night.”
NO SMALL FEAT
If he gets a stoppage on a fighter like Abreu, that will most definitely make everyone in the division take notice. The Dominican boxer has been in the ring with the likes of Jamal James, Pablo Cesar Cano, Egidijus Kavaliauskas, and Alexander Besputin. Moreover, each fight went to the scorecards. Abreau has a beard, so a knockout would be an amazing accomplishment for the young welterweight.
Ennis understands how difficult a task this will be. However, he explained why he is confident a knockout will happen by learning from his last fight.
“My last fight, I did good. There are a lot of things I watch, and I could have better on and that is what we worked on in this camp, and you guys will see on Saturday night.”
He went into detail about the preparation changes and reminded everyone that his last opponent was never knocked out either until running into the welterweight power puncher.
“Just being more relaxed and not rushing the knock out and letting it come to me, just like my last opponent. He was another guy that wasn’t knocked out or stopped or dropped. Come Saturday night, I will show you guys what I have been working on.”
