Vergil Ortiz Gives ‘Boots’ Ennis “trouble” Says Robert Garcia
By Dan Ambrose: Trainer Robert Garcia believes the unbeaten Vergil Ortiz Jr will supply Jaron `Boots` Ennis quite a few “hassle” while or in the event that they combat.
Garcia recognizes that lovers will select out `Boots` Ennis (29-0, 27 KOs) to overcome Vergil, however he says he might ought to “kill” him to win that combat.
The strain that the 24-12 months-antique Vergil (19-0, 19 KOs) might placed on Ennis will put on him down withinside the 2nd 1/2 of of the combat, making him vulnerable.
What makes it tough to view Ortiz as having any risk in opposition to a expertise like `Boots` Ennis is how he struggled in his final fights in opposition to Michael McKinson and Egidijus `Mean Machine` Kavaliauskas. Vergil seemed beatable in each of these fights and changed into getting hit a lot.
`Mean Machine` staggered Vergil of their combat final 12 months and had him at the verge of being knocked out early withinside the contest. As such, if Ortiz is suffering to overcome combatants like Kavaliauskas and McKinson, it shows that he’s going to now no longer do nicely in opposition to a expertise like `Boots` Ennis.
“If you ask the boxing world, they`re going to mention, `Boots` Ennis [beats Vergil Ortiz] due to his skills, he`s were given energy, and he`s displaying he`s the actual deal, `Boots` Ennis,” stated instructor Robert Garcia to Young Billionaire Boxing.
“Skills-wise, he packing containers great; he punches very, very hard. So 90% are possibly going to mention `Boots` Ennis. You can outbox him for 6 or 8 rounds, however Vergil has that energy and that coronary heart and that chin that you`re going to ought to kill him to overcome him.
“So Vergil may want to handiest take one punch, one round, to win a combat. Those are the difficult men to overcome due to the fact they`re now no longer going to head down that easy,” stated Robert.
With the manner Vergil is being matched with the aid of using his promoters at Golden Boy, we`re possibly now no longer going to peer him blending it up in opposition to a expertise like `Boots` Ennis for lots years. By the time we see them combat, Vergil may have already gotten overwhelmed with the aid of using anyone else, which might zap an awful lot of the fan hobby in seeing him tackle Ennis.
“So, `Boots` Ennis goes to have hassle with Vergil. Crawford, Spence, you call any welterweight, could have hassle with Vergil due to his style. Vergil isn’t always going to surrender.
“Vergil goes to be in form to head 15 rounds. So you`re now no longer going to forestall him. You ought to knock him out to forestall him. That`s why I suppose human beings are possibly going to select out Boots Ennis [to beat Vergil],” Robert stated while requested approximately Ortiz`s latest combat in opposition to Michael McKinson.
“I`m now no longer going to mention he [Vergil] changed into troubled, however it wasn`t his nice overall performance coming off the hassle that he had. He changed into unwell and changed into withinside the hospital.
“So quite a few that needed to have an impact on his overall performance. So because of that, 90% of the human beings are possibly going to select out `Boots` Ennis [to beat Ortiz], however I simply understand that `Boots` Ennis has by no means been examined in opposition to a canine like Vergil.
“When Vergil is going in there and doesn`t surrender after 5 or six rounds, despite the fact that he`s dropping rounds, he`s going to preserve coming and preserve coming, `Boots` Ennis goes to be in hell for the final 5 or six rounds,” stated Garcia.
It might be best if Golden Boy had been to begin matching Vergil in opposition to high-satisfactory combatants, however it seems they`re specializing in placing him in with gentle touches.
Vergil is being matched with the aid of using Golden Boy like they`ve been doing with Ryan Garcia. If you study the combatants Ryan is facing, he`s being installed with antique puppies without a energy, who’re nicely beyond their prime.
There`s little risk Golden Boy might throw Vergil into the hoop with a risky fighter like `Boots` Ennis and watch him get torn apart.
