Jaron “Boots” Ennis fought a total of a round-and-a-half in 2022. Not what anyone hoped of one of the most promising fighters in the sport.
Finally, Ennis has a return, as he is the co-main event of the Gervonta Davis vs. Hector Luis García, pay-per-view fight on January 7th, at the Capital One Arena in Washington D.C., as he takes on highly-rated, but unknown to seemingly most Karen Chukhadzhian
“This is not who we were originally supposed to be fighting,” said Ennis when speaking with YSM Sports Media, who has established a great relationship with Ennis. “We originally were supposed to be fighting Stanionis. I don’t know what happened but I gotta get what I can take right now. It is what it is. I really wanted that Stanionis fight.”
With a win in this fight, Ennis will be the interim IBF welterweight champion, and now will force the hand of Errol Spence Jr., as he will be his mandatory title defense in the near future.
“I go in there with every opponent and train hard like a world title fight. I'm a do what I always do, be better, sharper, smarter, stronger and come home with a knockout and look good doing it.”
