Ennis kept on switching stances while still throwing lead left hooks and overhand-rights. The referee was forced to stop the fight at the 1:51 mark. The bout was declared as a first round TKO victory.
This win means that Ennis is the first boxer to finish Fernandez via knockout or technical knockout.
