Jaron “Boots” Ennis continued his pursuit of a world title shot on Saturday night against former world champion Sergey Lipinets. They were schedule for 12-rounds, in a crossroads fight, with the winner probably looking at a welterweight world title fight in the near future.

 

Ennis vs. Lipinets was the main event at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut Saturday night in a Premier Boxing Champions event.

 

The 23-year-old Ennis (27-0, 25 KO’s) is another of the outstanding Philadelphia fighters from the “City of Brotherly Love” that boasts a rich boxing history.

 

The 31-year-old, Kazakhstan born, California-residing Lipinets (16-2-1, 12 KO’s) served notice to the 140-pound division when he won the IBF world title with a victory over Akihiro Kondo in 2017. He lost the title to superstar Mikey Garcia in 2018 and then moved up to welterweight 2 years ago.

 

Going into the fight, it was the classic scenario of the former, highly experienced world champion, against the undefeated, up and coming star. A win for either fighter would dictate who was going to position themselves for a world title shot – Ennis for his first title try, or Lipinets getting another shot at holding a championship.

 

In the end, Ennis overpowered and KO’d Sergey Lipinets in round 6 on Saturday night. Lipinets slipped in round four, but it was, incorrectly, ruled a knockdown. However, Ennis kept on Lipinets and landed a devastating, 6th round, straight left that knocked Lipinets out. An impressive performance by Ennis, one of boxing’s hottest, fast-rising stars, who is positioning himself for a world title shot and is targeting later this year or early next year.

 

 

Under Card (televised)

 

IBF junior bantamweight champion Jerwin “Pretty Boy” Ancajas (33-1-2, 22 KO’s) retained his title against Jonathan Rodríguez (22-2, 16 KO’s) via UD 12. The fight, an exciting slugfest, was Ancajas’ 9th title defence, an impressive title reign for sure.   

 

Unbeaten welterweight Eimantas Stanionis (13-0, 9 KO’s) scored a UD 12 over former world title challenger Thomas Dulorme (25-5-1, 16 KO’s).
