Jaron Ennis continues to do his thing.

The welterweight contender stopped Custio Clayton at 2:49 of the second round of a scheduled 12-round bout on the Jermell Charlo-Brian Castano card Saturday in Carson, California.

Ennis landed a straight right above the ear, which put Clayton on his face. The Canadian was able to get up but was unsteady on his feet, which prompted referee Ray Corona to stop the fight.

Ennis (29-0, 27 KOs) has stopped his last 19 opponents.

The fearsome Philadelphia fighter controlled the fight from the start with his jab, following with power shots only occasionally in the early going.

However, it was enough to get the attention of Clayton (19-1-1, 12 KOs), who did little except cover up. It was as if he knew something big was coming.

And then it came. Ennis jabbed twice and followed with a straight right as Clayton was lowering his head, which put him down and ended the fight.
