Jaron Ennis is looking for a title shot following Errol Spence v Yordenis Ugas
Top welterweight contender Jaron “Boots” Ennis (27-0, 25ko) is one of those high-risk, low reward fighters. So much so that none of the other top fighters in the division have mentioned his name. Boots has been trying to crack into the conversation of fighting one of the top dogs in the welterweight division. The business side of the sport is looking to make those mega-millions fights. This leaves the Philadelphia fighter on the outside waiting to be invited to the party.
However, he may not be left in cold very long. After thoroughly dismantling former IBF Junior Welterweight champion Sergey “Samurai” Lipinets (16-2-1, 12ko), Boots will see a nice bump up in the rankings that could get him a little closer to getting an invitation.
He has openly admitted that all the top welterweights will only fight him as a last resort, and he has continuously called for a fight with a top-five fighter while boasting he will be a champion in 2021. Furthermore, he is ranked by the following three governing sanctioning bodies: WBC #12, WBO #7, and the IBF #9.
During the post-fight interview, Ennis was asked what fight does he want next. He sort of confirmed a rumor by asking for the winner of a high-profile unification bout between unified champion Errol Spence Jr and WBA ‘super’ champion Yordenis Ugas.
“I think he (Ugas) is supposed to be fighting Spence or something like that coming up. Hopefully, I get the winner of that.”
