Jaron Ennis Dominates James Winchester For Decision Win

By Francisco Salazar

Welterweight Jaron Ennis dominated James Winchester through six one-sided rounds, winning by unanimous decision Friday night at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Ennis improved to 10-0, with 8 KOs, while Winchester falls to 20-13, 8 KOs.

Winchester was the toughest opponent on paper Ennis has faced in his young career, but the 19-year-old was too quick and polished throughout the bout.


Ennis dissected Winchester, landing an assortment of punches and combinations, putting the veteran fighter on the defensive.

All three judges scored the bout 60-54 in favor of Ennis, who resides in Philadelphia.

Ennis has maintained a busy schedule since making his pro debut on April 30 of last year. 

The bout topped a five-bout Victory Boxing Promotions card.

In the co-feature, Philadelphia junior featherweight Emmanuel Folly (10-0, 8 KOs) stopped Luis Hinojosa (30-11 1 NC, 17 KOs) at 2:18 of the opening round.

In a clash of unbeaten lightweights, Joshua Jones won a four round unanimous decision over Dustin Arnold (1-1). Scores were 40-36, 40-36, and 39-37 for Jones, who improves to 4-0-1, 2 KOs.

Super middleweight Darren Goodall (5-0, 4 KOs) stopped Juan Zapata (4-11-2, 2 KOs) at 1:51 of the second round.

Welterweight Brandun Lee improved to 2-0, with 2 KOs with a first round knockout over Seth Basler, who was making his pro debut. Lee is seventeen years of age.
