Jaron Ennis (24-0) with 22 knockouts has gone under the radar for many boxing fans. He is an exceptional talent with extreme punching power that has seen him stop 22 out of the 24 opponents he has faced. Many of the stoppages has been tremendous one-punch knockouts which you dont see very often. Our own Stephen "Breadman" Edwards is very impressed with this young 22 year old boxer that hails from Philadelphia, PA. During the last year his opposition has steadily improved and he has been able to do the job just as good as he was when facing pure journeymen. Within a year or two, he will be knocking on the door to challenge for the big titles. On saturday Jan 10 he faces Bakhtiyar Eyubov (14-1-1) from Kazakhstan on the undercard of Shields-habazin. Eyubov is a former sparring partner to Paulie Malignaggi and he is currently based in Houston, Texas. in his last two fights he is coming of a draw vs. a journeyman and then in his most recent fight, he lost to Brian Ceballo. So as you would expect, Jaron Ennis is a big favourite to win this bout.
Jaron Ennis has proven time and time again that he is above this level of competition. Eyubov will not stand a chance and because of the leaky defense we have observed in Eyubov it is very difficult to picture him lasting the distance against a fighter of Ennis Caliber. The Pick is jaron Ennis to win by an early stoppage and Under 5.5 Rounds is the Pick for a very good price of -110 (1.90 decimal odds)
The Pick: Under 5.5 Rounds
Odds: -110 (1.90 decimal odds)
