Bryant Jennings eager for Stiverne-Wilder winner
- Updated: November 20, 2014
Heavyweight contender Bryant Jennings (19-0, 10 KOs) is next in line to face the winner of the heavyweight title clash between Bermane Stiverne (24-1, 21 KOs) and Deontay Wilder (32-0, 32 KOs).
The two heavyweights will go head to head on January 17, 2015, and Jennings, who had a fight offered this month, passed, as he waits for the title opportunity he’s owed.
“I could have fought this month but my mind is set on fighting for the WBC world title,” said Jennings, “I worked my way to the top of the WBC rankings and now it’s time for me to make my mark in history. Stiverne or Wilder…I don’t care who it is, I’ll be ready to fight either one of them. My promoters, Gary Shaw, Antonio Leonard and I, are all on the same page. We want that WBC title!”
Jennings defeated Mike Perez and Artur Szpilka in his previous two fights, as he continues training in order to stay in shape for his title shot.
“I’m grinding every day like machine,” Jennings continued. “I’m constantly visualizing myself with my hands raised in the air with the WBC strap around my waist. I’m hungry man! I know I can do this.”
