Two of boxing’s most promising prospects, Jaron “Boots” Ennis and Brandun Lee make their much-anticipated ring returns in separate bouts on Friday, August 23 on the undercard of the Rumble in the Rose District on Main Street in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.
Jaron “Boots” Ennis (22-0, 20KO) is widely considered to be the best prospect to come out of Philadelphia in recent years. Ennis, who is coming off a knockout win over Raymond Serrano last December, is slated to face Bolivia’s Franklin Mamani in a 10 round, junior middleweight bout.
California’s Brandun Lee (15-0, 13KO) is also back in a six round welterweight contest versus Mexico’s Francisco Medel. Lee, who is only 20 years old, is quickly becoming known as a big puncher with an impeccable work ethic.
The two fights will take place on the untelevised undercard of ShoBox The New Generation, which is topped by Vladimir Shinskin vs. DeAndre Ware.
“I’m very excited to get them back in the ring,” said Now Boxing Promotions’ founder Cameron Dunkin. “These are perfect fights to get them ready for bigger and better televised opportunities. We’re grateful to Stephen Espinoza of Showtime for the opportunity.”
