Odds as of Apr. 7
This is a chance for Ennis to showcase some of the nuances in his boxing game that belie the idea he’s just this Philly style KO artist.
Lipinets is a multi-faceted, crafty pugilist who will certainly test him in this regard, and he seems to think he will be able to flummox Ennis in this altercation.
Jaron Ennis Looks For Statement Win
Jaron Boots Ennis is a surging 23-year-old contender, and this upcoming Lipinets fight represents a step up against a solid contender. Ennis has been dispatching foes steadily and has not gone more than six rounds in his pro career.
His last outing was a no-contest against Chris Van Heerden in December after a cut caused by an inadvertent headbutt. Boots looks to return to the form that saw him compile a sixteen-fight KO streak before the inconclusive finish of his last prizefight.
These 147 pounders match up quite well with one another stylistically. Ennis is a human highlight reel, and Lipinets is a high-octane, pressure fighter who always seems to be encroaching forward.
Sergey Lipinets’ Path to Being a Two Division Champ
Lipinets is a former 140-pound world champion and is currently ranked #3 in the division by the WBA. His last outing saw him go to a majority draw with Custio Clayton last October in their interim IBF welterweight world title fight.
Prior to that last bout, Sergey Lipinets was riding a three-fight win streak, with back-to-back stoppages after taking his sole career loss to Mikey Garcia in March 2018.
Ennis enters this contest with a 92 percent knockout rate with all but two bouts ending emphatically inside the distance.
Conversely, Lipinets has never been stopped inside the distance as a pro, and he also a respectable 75 percent stoppage rate overall. Sergey Lipinets also has some bite in his strikes that resonates across two different weight divisions.
Ennis vs Lipinets Tale of the Tape
|Juan Carlos Abreu, Bakhtiyar Eyubov, Demian Daniel Fernandez||Significant Wins||Lamont Peterson, Leonardo Zappavigna, Walter Castillo|
This bout is scheduled for twelve rounds, but I do not see this one encroaching to the final bell.
Ultimately, I think that Ennis will get back to his modus operandi of separating opponents from consciousness this weekend.
I think there’s good value in pursuing prop bets on this bout not going the distance, Ennis winning via TKO or KO (-275), and Ennis winning in either the seventh or eighth rounds (situated at +850 and +900 respectively).
Pick: Jaron Ennis (-1250)
