PHILADELPHIA, PA - This Friday night at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago, perennial Jr. Middleweight and Middleweight contender, Derek "Pooh" Ennis (24-4-1, 13 KO's) will be back in action when he takes on Caleb Truax in the 10-round Middleweight co-feature that will be televised by ESPN's Friday Night Fights.

Ennis of Philadelphia is the former USBA Jr. Middleweight champion, will be thrust back into the spotlight with opportunity to upset that apple cart of Truax (23-1-2, 14 KO's) who is currently ranked number-11 by the IBF.

"Everything is going well and we trained very hard for this fight," said Ennis.

"I saw him fight Ossie Duran (which Truax fought to a draw in his last bout that took place on January 3) and I see that he tries to come in and get a knockout."

Ennis believes that his experience, which is career that started in 2007 will be the key for him to reign victorious.

"I have been on and off. I have been to number-1 and number-2 in the world. I know he is ranked but I am going to do what I do but after this win, I am going back down to 154 pounds for another run."

Ennis has had opportunities and has come up a bit short and he knows that this could be a final chance in front of the national audience and he know the importance of a win on Friday night.

"This fight, I am going for the gusto. When I win, I will keep it moving. If for some reason, It doesn't go well, I will have to take a look at the many job opportunities that I have received over the past little while but I am not ready to do that. I do consider this fight a make it or break it situation."

"Being on television is a great opportunity for the fans to see me put on a this great performance and I have worked very hard for this. I just can't wait to get in there on Friday," finished Ennis.

Ennis is coming off a 6-round unanimous decision win over Emil Gonzalez on March 14 in Philadelphia and has solid wins over Troy Browning (20-2-1); Eromesele Albert (22-3-1) and Gabriel Rosado (14-4) on his resume.

Ennis is managed by Battlestrong Boxing which is consisted of Moz Gonzalez & Eddie Woods.
