Apparently, top welterweight contender American Jaron Ennis (29-0, 27 KOs) is fond of fishing – just like ex-lightweight hegemon Ukrainian Vasily Lomachenko.
Ennis will face Ukraine’s Karen Chukhajian for the vacant IBF interim title this weekend in Washington, USA. But all thoughts (more precisely, all questions from media representatives) are not about him, but about a potential duel with the division leader, American Errol Spence.
a comment Ennis: Will the fight with Spence take place or will I get a vacant belt? Honestly? I have no idea. I hope they will somehow manage to convince him – they will make him want to fight me. I’m still busy increasing the fan base through early wins. If I continue to win, to do it with the help of knockouts, then I think everything is fine. Spence?.. You know, I prefer to catch a fish myself. But if they offer me to sit on the bank or ride a jet ski, that will also be cool.”
Ennis even compared Spence to a freshly caught fish: “Are you into fishing? Do you know what happens when you’ve just landed a fish? She wriggles and wriggles. I dream of a legacy. I want to become a legend. I want to become someone who will forever remain in the memory of the fans. And my journey has just begun. After this fight, I need only really famous opponents, only top fighters. I am the best fighter in the world. And point.
Earlier, the favorite said that he did not know if he would be able to knock out the Ukrainian Chukhadzhyan. And before the fight with Ennis, he does not hide: “I am planning a big surprise.” Yesterday, a Ukrainian addressed the American people: “Thank you very much.”
