JUNE 15, 2021 – Federal Court litigation pending since March 2019 concerning the promotional rights to Jaron “Boots” Ennis formally concluded on June 9, 2021, with the filing of a collective dismissal of all claims by the parties involved.
Boxing industry veterans Cameron Dunkin and Chris Middendorf amicably resolved the dispute the two had with one another over the promotion of Jaron Ennis. Although the battle came out of the ring and into a courtroom, both promoters wish each other well and hope for the best for their respective stables of talented fighters.
Pursuant to the settlement agreement reached between Dunkin and Middendorf, which was joined and signed by both Jaron Ennis and his father/trainer/manager Derek “Bozy” Ennis, Cameron Dunkin (below) has the exclusive promotional rights to Jaron Ennis effective May 12, 2021. Moving forward, Jaron Ennis is promoted by D & D Boxing, a promotional company operated by Cameron Dunkin and his brother, Joseph Dunkin.
Jaron Ennis had been promoted by Chris Middendorf (below), through his Victory Boxing Promotions company, from Ennis' April 2016 debut through his November 2018 victory over Raymond Serrano. During this period, Ennis amassed a record of 22-0 with 20 of those victories coming by way of stoppage.
Middendorf is looking to the future, ready to sign and grow the next crop of world class talent.
“I currently have David Stevens and Kiante Iriving, both from Pennsylvania, in the Victory Boxing Promotions stable,” said Middendorf. “My doors are open, and I'm continuing to do what I do best – sign and match the best talent, and develop those fighters into world champions.”
Beginning with his August 2019 stoppage of Franklin Mamani, and continuing through his recent KO6 of Sergey Lipinets, Ennis was promoted by Cameron Dunkin pursuant to a temporary agreement between the parties while the litigation was pending.
Both Middendorf and Dunkin wish nothing but the best for Ennis and one another moving forward. “I wish Boots nothing but the best,” said Middendorf. “I look forward to him becoming a world champion.”
