Bryant Jennings Inks Promotional With Gary Shaw

Philadelphia's undefeated heavyweight contender, Bryant Jennings (17-0, 9 KOs) has signed a co-promotional contract with Gary Shaw Productions and Antonio Leonard Promotions.  Advised by manager James Prince, Jennings on the verge of fighting for a world title, is ranked IBF No. 3, WBO No. 14 and WBC No. 21.

Having fought stiff competition thus far in his career, Jennings is the type of battle tested warrior America is seeking to represent the heavyweight division on a global stage.  With a powerful team behind him, Jennings feels he's ready to take his career to the next level.

"I'm glad I'm finally moving forward in my career with a great team," said Bryant Jennings.  "Gary Shaw and Antonio Leonard are two great promoters who have been in this sport for many years and have promoted some of the biggest fights in boxing history.  I'm ecstatic to be managed by James Prince because he's guided the careers of many world champions and his knowledge as a boxing manager is impeccable.  It's truly a blessing to have these experienced gentlemen working on my behalf.  I'm ready to take my career to the next level."

Having promoted some of boxing's greatest fighters, which include Mike Tyson, Diego Corrales, Shane Mosley, Winky Wright, Vernon Forrest and Lennox Lewis to name a few , Gary Shaw sees Bryant Jennings as the next heavyweight contender to conquer boxing most glorified division.

"First off I want to say I'm very thrilled to be working side by side with my good friends Antonio Leonard and James Prince," Shaw said. "We've worked harmoniously together in the past when we had Corrales and it was an astonishing journey.  Now we've come together again with an outstanding heavyweight in Bryant Jennings.  From what I've seen, Jennings has the personality and talent to become a star in this sport.  He's a very kind young man who brings an exciting style to the heavyweight division.  I'm very pleased to add Jennings to our rich history of great fighters here at GSP and I'm working hard with Antonio and James to get him in a big fight.  He'll be in the ring very soon."

James Prince, Gary Shaw and Antonio Leonard made history when they worked together with Diego Corrales.  Prince, who currently manages some of boxings best fighters, is eager to unite with Shaw and Leonard with the hopes of taking Jennings to the peak of the heavyweight division.

"I'm just excited to be working with Gary Shaw Productions and Antonio Leonard Promotions once again," said James Prince.  "It was beautiful ride we all had with the late Diego Corrales and once again I feel like I'm bringing them an outstanding fighter in American Bryant Jennings, who I believe is the best heavyweight in the world."

Antonio Leonard has the same feelings as Prince when it comes to working with Gary Shaw.

 "When Gary Shaw and I team up its like dynamite," stated Antonio Leonard. "Whoever we work with is going to be the next superstar in boxing.  With Diego Corrales we did amazing things together.  I have great respect for Gary Shaw who I started out with, not just as a boxing promoter, but as a loyal friend.  I know Bryant Jennings is in the hands of a great promoter with Shaw who cares about his fighters just like I do.

Antonio Leonard continued saying, "Jennings' work ethic is unbelievable and he reminds me lot of Andre Ward.  Bryant carries himself with great respect inside and outside of the ring.  James Prince along with Gary and me will take this man to the top.  I can promise you Jennings will leap to the top of the heavyweight division and will whip the Klitschko brothers.  Bryant who hails from Philadelphia will make America proud!"
