Bryant Jennings Trains in Las Vegas For Mike Perez

LAS VEGAS, NV - Gary Shaw Productions and Antonio Leonard Promotions heavyweight contender, Bryant "By-By" Jennings (18-0, 10 KOs), has set up training camp in Las Vegas for two weeks before his upcoming WBC title elimination bout against Mike Perez (20-0-1, 12 KOs).

Jennings, who hails from Philadelphia, PA, left home for two weeks to avoid the distractions that go along with training near family and friends.  In the biggest fight on his career, he chose Las Vegas, to train in high elevation for a couple of weeks, before returning home to finish out camp.

"I wanted to come out to Las Vegas for a couple of weeks and train in high elevation," said Jennings. "I've been running up at Mt. Charleston in high elevation, training alongside Erislandy Lara.  Leaving Philly for a couple of weeks is only going to help me focus on getting fully prepared for Perez.  I'll head back home to finish out camp after this week."

"Jennings is taking this fight very seriously," said promoter Gary Shaw. "I know he doesn't want to leave any stone unturned.  That is why he went out to Vegas to train with the best guys in the business.  I know he'll be in great shape for this fight.  He's a dedicated and amazing athlete."

Bryant "By By" Jennings and Mike "The Rebel" Perez will take place on Saturday, July 26 at The Mecca of Boxing, Madison Square Garden as the co-feature to Gennady Golovkin vs. Daniel Geale.  The fight will be televised Live on HBO World Championship Boxing® beginning at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT.

GOLOVKIN VS. GEALE is presented by K2 Promotions, GGG Promotions in association with Gary Shaw Productions and Grange Old School Boxing.

I wonder which Perez shows up for this fight? Will it be the one who dominated Mago, or the one who was flat and drew with Takam? Maybe this is a pick em fight. Should be a great battle whichever…

Time for these young American heavyweights to take the division back. These funny talkin' sum-b1tches have had the division too long and its been killing the sport.

Perez has power but Jennings seems durable. He has a huge reach advantage over Perez, is more mobile, and a better all round boxer. I think he will use those attributes to win this by ud.

[QUOTE=Public_Enemy;14667563]Magomed actually willed his way to the final bell. I still don't know how he did it but he did not get KO'd. Magomed was a true warrior that night.[/QUOTE] My mistake about the KO, but the damage was early…
