WHEN life, even by the most heinous of circumstances, hands you a lemon, well, you squeeze it tight until only the bitterest dregs remain.

Uber welterweight talent Jaron Ennis was never meant to headline at the Dort Federal Credit Union Event Center, but when the opportunity arose out of the blue, he made sure to make the most of it. In quick, concerted fashion, the 22-year-old Philadelphian southpaw dispatched Argentine Demian Fernandez inside three breezy rounds of a 10-rounder.

While Ennis may have only been served one soft touch after another so far in his nascent career — and this was no exception to that — he has made sure to dispense with his hapless opponents with appropriate derision. Only two of the 24 opponents on Ennis’ ledger have heard the final bell.
