US star Jaron Ennis wants to make history and become FOUR-TIME undisputed champ from welterweight to super-middleweight
RISING American talent Jaron Ennis wants to make boxing history and become a FOUR-TIME undisputed champion.
The welterweight contender has emerged as one of the hottest prospects in the sport, unbeaten in 29 fights with 26 knockouts.
Already he has won praise from the likes of Floyd Mayweather, 44, and drew comparisons to Roy Jones Jr, 55.
But Ennis has his eye on surpassing even their iconic legacies and reigning from welterweight to super-middleweight, with all the belts to his name.
He told SunSport: “I want to go down in history as one of the all-time greats.
“I want to be the first in history to win undisputed belts at 47, 54, 60 and 68, four-time undisputed world champion.
“Its never been done before and I want to be the first person to do that.
"I want everybody to love my style, the fans and people to continue watching me.”

Boxing has only ever had six men reign as a four-belt undisputed champion, with lightweight Teofimo Lopez, 24, ruled out after winning the WBC 'Franchise' belt.
But none achieved the feat in more than one division, let alone four, although women's boxer Claressa Shields, 26, was undisputed at middleweight and light-middle.
Ennis, yet to fight for a world title, has a dazzling, switch-hitting style and carries power in each hand from both stances.
And he is even forced to spar light-heavyweights, who naturally fight TWO STONE more than him.
Ennis revealed: "I spar a lot bigger guys, like 68 or 75. It’s names I can’t say, but I spar with a lot of guys.
“When I’m in camp, I spar bigger guys because I’m too strong for the guys in my weight, so I bring in guys that are 54, 60, 68, some are 75.
“I need that extra weight. But I do great, it’s better for me to spar bigger guys. Sometimes I add in a smaller guy, just for speed.
“But I don’t throw much power or nothing like that.”
I want to be the first in history to win undisputed belts at 47, 54, 60 and 68, four-time undisputed world champion.
Ennis, who most recently knocked out Thomas Dulorme, 31, in round one, is ranked in the top six with each governing body and as high as three with the IBF.
He is is in the fortunate position of having not one but two elite fighters in his weight division who are considered to be in the top ten in the world.
But he is waiting for Terence Crawford, 34 and Errol Spence Jr, 31, to finally settle who is the welterweight No1, before swooping in.
Ennis said: “It’s a great thing to have two pound-for-pound guys in the same weight as me.
“Hopefully they fight each other, then I can come in there and fight one of those guys, or both.”
Challenging WBO champion Crawford, who fights Shawn Porter, 34, on November 20 in Las Vegas , or WBC and IBF holder Spence is well within Ennis' sights.
And if he had it his way, it would be sooner than most predict.
Ennis admitted: “Honestly, I feel like it could happen next. But, realistically probably one more fight, one or two more fights.”
