New, 4 comments

Ennis aiming to fight his way to the top of the welterweight division.

Fast rising welterweight Jaron Ennis is the latest fighter to appear on Brian Custers’ The Last Stand Podcast, and during this installment Ennis talks about his elite level talent and his desire to prove it against the best welterweights in the world. Check out some excerpts of what Ennis had to say below...

Ennis on why he believes he’s the most talented fighter in the welterweight division

“I can box, I fight on the inside, I’m strong, fast, powerful, everything you need I have it and I’m well rounded in everything. I think this division, they’re only good at one thing or two things, but I’m good at everything.”

On who he wants to fight next

“I want a top three or top five guy (the Keith Thurmans, Shawn Porters, Yordenis Ugas) that way it will put me in line for a world title by the end of the year or the beginning of 2022. I just want all the great fights and fight all the best fighters and that’s the goal.”

On his talent level

“I haven’t shown the world my full potential, I’ve shown like 30%, 40%. I feel like I really haven’t had to go into my bag yet to show my full potential and in my last fight I was just warming up and I end up getting a knockout.”

On his goal to become a world champion this year

“That’s the goal, fight the best, work my way up, I know I got to work my way up, I know they’re not just going to pick me and fight me and I respect it. I’m going to continue to work my way up to the world title, keep beating everybody they put in front of me and eventually I’ll be a world champion. I figure it will be the end of this year or beginning of 2022.”
