Former USBA junior middleweight champion Derek “Pooh” Ennis (23-3-1, 13 KOs) has been forced to pull out of Friday’s ESPN2 clash with undefeated 2008 U.S. Olympian Demetrius “Boo Boo” Andrade (15-0, 10 KOs) at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. The IBF #9-rated Ennis caught a bad case of the flu and had a 102-degree temperature. Promoters are looking for a new foe for Andrade.
