By Ken Hissner, Doghouse Boxing (April 2, 2011) Doghouse Boxing
NABF Super Middleweight champion Farah Ennis, 17-0 (11), from the Germantown section of Philadelphia will have a non-title bout with southpaw Alexander Johnson, 10-0 (4), of Oxon Hill, MD, at Bally’s Casino in Atlantic City, NJ, Saturday night.

The co-managers of Ennis, Moz Gonzales and Eddie Woods have brought Ennis along nicely with their fighter ranked No. 9 by the WBC. Ennis did not have a big amateur background but comes from a fighting family. His brother Derek “Pooh” Ennis is the USBA light middleweight champion and their father Bozy Ennis trains both boxers.

This will be the first 10 rounder for Johnson who has not gone past 6 rounds. It will be a challenge getting down below 170 for the first time in his young career.

John Lynch of Pound for Pound Promotions will feature an 8 bout card with Wilmington, DE, heavyweight southpaw Amir “Hardcore” Mansour, 12-0 (9), looking to stretch his unbeaten streak to 13 against Hector “Hurricane” Ferreyro, 21-9-2 (12), of Laredo, TX, in the 8 round semi-windup.

Ferreyro lost his International Boxing Council title in his last fight by split decision. He’s 5-0 in 12 round bouts and will be fighting away from TX for only the third time in 32 fights. Mansour is on a 6 fight knockout streak with 3 of them since coming back after a lengthy inactivity. His manager Keith Stoffer knows this will be the most experienced boxer Mansour has fought but has a lot of confidence in his fighter.

Heavyweight Damian Wills, 29-2-1 (22), of Los Angeles, CA, brings in a 7 fight win streak against upset minded Arron Lyons, 12-9-1 (9), Las Cruces, NM, who stopped Lenroy Thomas 16-1 in December. This will be an 8 rounder.

The rest of the card will have New Jersey fighters Bobby Rooney of Bayonne, Victor Valenzuela, of Passaic, Thomas “Cornflake” Lamanna, 1-0 (1) of Atlantic City, and Asbury Parks Chris Green against Atlantic City’s Osnel Charles. Unbeaten Steve Martinez from the Bronx, NY, fills out the card.
