ENNIS MEETS ARANAOUTIS IN AC GATEWAY FIGHT

In Philly, the word on the street is that welterweight Jaron “Boots” Ennis, 19-0, 17 KOs, is boxing’s next big star, and some say the best to come along since Meldrick Taylor electrified the City of Brotherly Love by winning an Olympic Gold Medal at age 17, and world championships in two weight divisions as a professional.  Big shoes to fill for sure.  However, Ennis’ rise thus far suggests we should indeed believe the hype. 

Ennis takes the next step in his budding career on Friday night in Atlantic City when he faces veteran “Mighty” Mike Arnaoutis, 26-10-2, 13 KOs, in the 10-round main event at the Showboat Hotel & Casino.  The fight is... (MORE)

HANEY ROUTS MENARD

Haney methodically dominated every round of the fight, banking round after round on the scorecards.

There were no knockdowns during the contest, and Haney never went for the kill. He just circled and threw blizzards of punches at his over-matched foe, seemingly content to go the distance, win a decision, and collect his belt.    (MORE)

The fight was the best of the night, and was loaded with exciting moments, knockdowns by both fighters and a savage ending that capped the night.

In the first round, the southpaw champion dropped Dogboe with a hard left and appeared to be on the brink of quickly defending his title, and ending the angry, confrontational bitterness that preceded the fight. However, these two were just getting started.    (MORE)
