On November 19. 2010 at Harrah’s Resort & Casino in Atlantic City, Farah Ennis (17-0, 11ko’s) of Germantown scored three knockdowns en route to a 7th round stoppage win over Victor Lares (15-5, 4ko’s) of Corpus Christi, TX – which earned him the vacant NABF Super Middleweight title.
Lares has a couple of decent spurts but overall was no match for his younger foe who took his time to find the right spots to operate.
Ennis stayed on the outside for most of the opening rounds and then accepted Lares challenge when the Texas native decided to go for broke and get inside. It turned out to be a mistake for Lares as he got dropped in the midst of putting forth his best work somewhere in round 5.
Ennis turned up the heat in round 7, dropping Lares with a hard looping right – a shot that gave the referee no option but to call a halt to the battle.
In the co-feature, “The Gentleman” Chazz Witherspoon (28-2, 20ko’s) of South Jersey scored a stoppage win over Alexis Mejias (11-6, 5ko’s) of Paterson, NJ.
The under card was extremely one-sided as Super Featherweight Keenan Smith (3-0, 1ko) of Philadelphia, PA, Light Heavyweight Lavarn “Baby Bowe” Harvell (7-0, 3 KO’s) of Atlantic City; Super Middleweight Joel De La Paz (6-0, 4 KO’s) of Atlantic City and Delaware’s Joey Tiberi (2-0, 1 KO) all won convincingly.
