Klitschko-Jennings final presser
- Updated: April 22, 2015
On Tuesday afternoon, heavyweight champ Wladimir Klitschko and Bryant Jennings met at Madison Square Garden, the very site they will go head to head at on Saturday night, for their final press conference.
“15 years ago I fought on the Lennox Lewis – Michael Grant Undercard, my first appearance in the garden and on HBO. 15 years later I am still around and I wish a can be 49 and still perform,” said an elated Klitschko (63-3, 53 KOs).
Klitschko has not fought in the U.S., since he knocked out Sultan Ibragimov in 2008 – a fight that also took place at the Garden.
“I’m excited about the fight. It is the right time, the right venue and right opponent,” added Klitschko.
For Jennings (19-0, 10 KOs), his last two fights have been at MSG, including wins over Artur Szpilka and Mike Perez. He will look to make it three in a row and become the next American heavyweight champ (with Deontay Wilder holding a belt as well).
“Everyone knows what we do. I’ve been putting in work. People that question or doubt what I do they are retarded. April 25th it’s going down. I don’t know what else to say,” said Jennings. ”April 25th is history for me, my team and Philadelphia.”
The fight will air on HBO this Saturday at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
