Boots will be aiming to continue his impressive run which has resulted in 30 wins with 27 KOs and one no contest.
However, coming into the fight, Ennis had a far from easy performance. In his last fight, ‘Boots’ secured a unanimous-decision win in a fight where he was expected to stop his opponent, Karen Chukhadzhian.
This time around, Ennis made it clear that he would be looking to get back to his usual self, as he eyed a stoppage. His opponent, Villa, though is no easy obstacle.
With only one defeat to his name at the hands of Marcos Villasana Jr. via a split decision, Villa’s confidence is riding high.
Six consecutive victories have followed since then, firmly putting him in the conversation to potentially face Errol Spence Jr. or Terence Crawford provided he comes out on top in the IBF interim welterweight title bout.
