Saturday evening in front of a crowd sellout of 19.731 at the Capital One Arena on the Gervonta “Tank” Davis-Hector Luis Garcia undercard.

It was the first time Ennis (30-0, 27 knockouts) went all 12 rounds in his career, and he tallied 120-108 on the three scorecards.

 “I learned to just take my time and to not rush anything. I’m glad I went 12 rounds. It felt great. I felt I was in the best shape. I just needed to throw a little more punches. I should have got him out of there. He ran a lot. Hats off to him since a lot of guys didn’t want to fight me. So shout out to him for coming here and taking this fight,” said Ennis after the fight.

Also, after the fight, NBA champion and ex-NBA veteran Stephen Jackson was asked if there was something that reminds him of the late great Kobe Bryant in Jaron “Boots” Ennis.

“Something that Boots has that if I had to compare to Kobe is the work ethic. Boots works, he is in the gym at four or five in the morning, going back at nine in the morning. He is a gym rat and if I had to say anything similar to Kobe, It’s that aspect,” Jackson told ESNEWS.

Speaking of Kobe Bryant, Lakers’ former athletic trainer, Gary Vitti recently shared why Kobe Bryant wasn’t special, but his work ethic made him great.

“The more you think about it, you’ll realize if you actually look at Kobe Bryant, there’s nothing really special about him in terms of his god-given things. Is he big? He’s bigger than me. Bigger than the average person in the world. But is he big by NBA’s standards? No, he’s not that big. Was he quick? Yeah, he was quick, but he wasn’t the quickest. Was he strong? Yes he was, but he wasn’t the strongest. Was he a leaper? Yeah, he could get off his feet, but he wasn’t like Zach LaVine, he didn’t have 42-inch vertical. There was nothing there. Nothing,” said Vitti.
