Jaron Boots Ennis past the step up test with flying colors by knocking out Sergey Lipinets Cold in the 6th round than calls out Errol Spence and the rest of the top Welterweights to step up and accept his challenge.
Boots Ennis showcased Elite skills in each of the rounds basically landing every punch with dazzling speed, power and accuracy. Switching from southpaw to orthodox even the announcer were confused if Boots was lefty or righty. Is Ennis an elite fighter? Many will debate if he is but what’s not debatable is Boots have elite skills and probably the most tools in the tool box we haven’t seen since Roy Jones Jr. With looking at the skills he possess, People will also debate if he’s ready for the elite welterweights in Which he called out in the post fight interview such as WBC IBF unified champion Errol Spence, WBO champ Terence Crawford, Former unified champion Keith Thurman, Former 2x champion Shawn Porter etc But looking at each bag of tricks. A Question could also be ask, are they ready for a young and hungry highly talented and dangerous fighter like Jaron Boots Ennis.
Most of the greatest fighters we hold dearly proved their potential greatness by having the opportunity at a young age vs the top dog in their respected division. How can they prove that the hype is real if they don’t get the opportunity? Muhammad Ali at 22 years old needed to beat Sunny Liston, Oscar de la Hoya at 22-23 years old def Pernell Whitaker & Julio Cesar Chavez, Wilfred Benitez def Antonio Cervantes at the age of 17 to become the youngest world champion ever. Just half a year ago The 23 year old Teofimo Lopez Defeated Vasyl Lomachenko for the Morally Undisputed lightweight crown. Lomachenko who at the time was arguably regarded the #1 pound 4 pound fighter on the planet and that’s just to name of few. Were they ready? Many thought those who overcame the odds weren’t.
Experience was irrelevant back than as it is in the current state. Skill for Skill Jaron Boots Ennis is more than Ready to fight the “elite” Welterweights.
