And that’s now 22 out of 24 opponents that have failed to hear the final bell against Philadelphia Welterweight world prospect 🇺🇸Jaron “Boots” Ennis.
The 22 year old Ennis (24-0-0, 22KO) was bumped up to the headliner Saturday night at the Dort Federal Event Center in Flint, Michigan, in place of the originally scheduled Welterweight title bout between Claressa Shields vs Ivana Habazin. Ennis took advantage of the spotlight and made quick work of the overmatched 30 year old Argentine 🇦🇷Demian Daniel Fernandez (12-2-0, 5KO), stopping him in the 3rd round.
As soon as the bell sounded to start the action Ennis went to work, even switching to southpaw while pelting Fernandez with over 40% of his power shots. In round 3, Ennis pinned Fernandez in the corner and let loose with a flurry of punches that the Argentine couldnt answer and was left with no option but to go to a knee.
Although he got to his feet before the ten count, Fernandez informed the referee that he was unable to see and the fight was stopped. After the bout Hernandez was taken to the hospital to look into a possible orbital injury.
This was only the second fight for Ennis this year after taking the ring five times in 2018. He is explosive and entertaining as they come and should definitely in the mix for a title shot in 2020.
