Results from ShoBox – Jaron Ennis continues to impress
Jaron “Boots” Ennis is a fast-track to becoming a household name as he beat regional star, Raymond “Tito” Serrano in devastating fashion stopping the heralded amateur in the second round of a scheduled ten-round main event from 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, Pa. The bout came to end quickly as Serrano was dropped three times in the second round, culminating in the stoppage. Ennis is having a ShoBox run similar to Regis Prograis, who is now viewed as a boxing superstar, something to think about.

In the co-main event, Super lightweight Samuel Teah (15-2-1, 7 KOs) outworked the much-more decorated fighter Kenneth Sims Jr. (13-2-1, 4 KOs) in an eight-round bout. The result was upset as despite both fighters having losses, Sims had a decorated amateur pedigree with over 200 amateur fights. Teah’s size and physical pressure was too much for Sims Jr., who was unable to keep him off the judges scored the bout 77-75, 77-75, 79-73 for Teah.
In the opening bout, Arnold Khegai (14-0-1 9KOs) picked up an eight-round decision over Jorge Diaz. Khegai won most of the rounds, dropping the last two on my card, but more than made up for it by dropping Diaz in the fourth and rocking him two rounds earlier in the fourth. Khegai is a raw prospect, who shows traits of good fighter, but needs some more development before the next level.
