A ShoBox tripleheader is set for Friday, Nov. 16 in Philadelphia, taking place at the 2300 Arena, and featuring the return of highly touted welterweight prospect Jaron Ennis in the main event.
Ennis (21-0, 19 KO) made his ShoBox debut in July, knocking out Armando Alvarez in the third round. His second ShoBox bout will come against veteran Raymond “Tito” Serrano (24-5, 10 KO), a fellow Philadelphia native.
“Serrano is just another opponent on my way to my ultimate goal, a world championship,” said Ennis. “I am focused and I’m just going to keep working hard until I am able to accomplish that main goal. I can’t wait to display my talent once again on ShoBox.”
“I am excited - this is Philly vs Philly,” said Serrano. “We are two of the best welterweights going at it. I believe my experience with my new trainer Shadeed Saluki will help me in this fight and I do not think (Ennis) has been in the ring with anyone like me. I am excited to be on ShoBox because the world will see my talents. With a win, this will lead me to even bigger fights.”
Philadelphia’s Samuel Teah (14-2-1, 7 KO) will also be in action, taking on Chicago’s Kenneth Sims Jr (13-1-1, 4 KO) in an eight round junior welterweight bout. The opening bout will be another eight rounder, pitting Arnold Khegai (13-0-1, 9 KO) against Jorge Diaz (19-5-1, 10 KO) in a super bantamweight fight.
