Undefeated welterweight Jaron “Boots” Ennis will look to cement his status as a rising star in the welterweight division when he takes on former world champion Sergey Lipinets in a 12-round battle that headlines action live on Showtime April 10 from Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn.
On facing his first former world champion: “He’s a good fighter, but it doesn’t mean anything to me. It’s just another day in the office. He’s a regular person just like anyone else.”
On Sergey calling him a ‘typical Philly fighter’: “I guess he knows I’m tough, gritty and I’m ready to rumble. I’m coming there to take a win home to Philadelphia and look good doing it, by any means.”
