Boxing results, highlights: Jaron Ennis knocked out Custio Clayton. Frank Gore scores a vicious KO in his pro debut

While Jermell Charlo vs. Brian Castano is the big fight of the night in boxing, there is plenty of action across the country. And some of these actions have created shocking finishes.

Rising welterweight superstar Jaron “Boots” Ennis returned to the ring later that night, facing former Olympian Custio Clayton. Clayton was never able to make his attack, with Ennis’ jab dominating the action early in the match. Then, in Round 2, Clayton tried to get under Ennis’s fire to catch him with a large right hand behind his ear.

Clayton hit the canvas and could not find his feet again, even though he had just won referee’s Ray Corona’s 10. Corona had no choice but to cancel the match and give Ennis a halt to the second round. Ennis is now 29-0 and one of the best prospects in the sport.

“I’m just trying to perfect my art and get better and better every time. That’s what I did. I just work on things and do what I have to do. And that’s the knockout,” Ennis said after the fight. “I keep telling you every time, you know my motto. We come and go like a robbery. We are not paid for overtime.

“He had a high guard, so I was trying to get on the right hook. He bent down and just dropped a handle. I thought he was going to get up. He’s a tough, tough guy. Nobody ever stopped him. I thought he was going to get up, but I saw he fell again. so I said “this is over”.

Frank Gore scores a nasty KO on his professional debut

Former NFL player Frank Gore made his professional boxing debut on Saturday against Yaya Olorunsola in Gamebred Boxing 1. Gore missed a report from former NBA player Deron Williams in December, but stuck with the sport to become professional.

Gore was linked to a vicious riot by punches against Oloruncola, who beat him coldly and sent him to face the canvas. Gore has the three most yards in NFL history, but now he can add a professional boxing victory to his already impressive track record with his athletic achievements.

Evan Holyfield is shocked by the TKO

In what is sure to be the biggest upset of the night – in terms of sports betting odds anyway – Evan Holyfield, son of legendary fighter Evander Holyfield, entered the ring as the -4500 favorite against unknown craftsman Jurmain McDonald. Holyfield would finally experience defeat for the first time in his career when McDonald unloaded a wild right-hander that caught Holyfield in the chin, hitting him on the canvas. Holyfield could not beat the count and is now 9-1 as a professional and his prospects as a future force in boxing are highly questionable.

The fighter sends the opponent out of the ring

In another action with undefeated prospects, John “Scrappy” Ramirez found himself on the right side of things when he connected with the right hand that surprised Jan Salvatierra. Ramirez followed Salvatiera on the ropes and landed with a second right hand that sent his enemy to spill through the ropes and to the floor.

The result could have been much worse if a photographer on the ringside had not grabbed Salvatierra’s head before it hit the floor.

Ramirez is now 10-0 with eight knockouts since becoming a professional in December 2020.
