Jaron Ennis is all charged up to box Sergey Lipinets on Saturday night. His prime aim is to win this fight and continue with his undefeated streak. But the 23-year-old has his focus keenly set on the wider picture. That said, the young welterweight gun is looking to compete against the bigwigs of his division like Errol Spence Jr., Terence Crawford, and Shawn Porter.

Ennis interacted with the media in a pre-fight press conference, wherein he asserted on fighting the aforementioned trio. He said, “I mean, that’s definitely the goal. Hopefully, I can you know, if they need a dance partner, they could just call.”

‘Boots’ has an eye-catchy unbeaten resume of 26 wins. (24 T/KO). This itself is proof of Ennis’ daunting power.

In his notable career, Ennis has transitioned to different weight classes but, it seems now, with his anticipation to fight Errol Spence Jr., Terence Crawford, and Shawn Porter, he will predominantly stay at welterweight for the foreseeable future.

But in order to get his hands on any of these stout names, Ennis will have to go on a run at 147. For now, he’s looking forward to maximizing the challenge at hand in the form of Sergey Lipinets. He’s already rooting for a knockout victory in this fight, as it would help him make a solid statement in the division.

Is Sergey Lipinets an easy opponent for Jaron Ennis?

With a 16-1-1 track record, Lipinets hasn’t quite made it big in the welterweight division yet. He’s as desperate as his adversary, Jaron Ennis, to make his pathway to the top and subsequently fight for the title.

Without a doubt, Ennis looks stronger on paper, and he has every ability to crush Lipinets in this bout. Despite that, underestimating the ‘Samurai’ might leave ‘Boots’ vulnerable as the former holds significant knockout power and can close the show with one hit.

That said, this fight has all the makings of a thrilling entertainer. It’ll be interesting to see who among the two scores the first knockdown in this fight and wins this bout.
