Madison Square Garden, New York - In a high stakes heavyweight battle between unbeatens, also tabbed as a WBC eliminator, Bryant Jennings (19-0, 10KOs) won a twelve round split decision over Mike Perez (20-1-1, 12KOs). The scores 114-113 for Perez, 115-112 for Jennings and 114-113 for Jennings. Jennings is now in line to face the winner of the ordered fight between WBC champion Bermane Stiverne and mandatory challenger Deontay Wilder.

The end result was set down by a point deduction in the final round to Perez. Without the point deduction, the fight would have been a twelve round split draw.

Perez started very strong in the contest and his hard punches controlled the early going, but Jennings took over as the fight went along. Jennings was able to land the cleaner shots with Perez appearing to tire in the second half. Perez still had his moments and was able to steal some rounds when Jennings became lazy. They both came out swinging in the final round, but Perez lost a point in the tweflth for hitting Jennings on the break.

[QUOTE=Boxingwizard]yup, the HW division is still garbage.[/QUOTE] Thanks to guys like Jennings and Perez. *puke* For my HW kicks, I'll stick with entertainers like Fury and Wilder or technicians like Wladimir and Pulev.

I like Jennings, he's most definitely better than how he looks. He does little things that makes him out box Perez. Jennings was definitely getting the better of Perez in the fight.

[QUOTE=-PANDA-]Jennings looked scared of Perez' power early on, I was wondering if that was because he actually felt his power or because he was aware of what he did to abdulsalamov. jennings' gameplan was obviously to box him from the outside which failed miserably and it wasn't until late in th...

[QUOTE=PittyPat]I stopped watching after round 8 - couldn't stand it anymore. The whole fight just looked like shit. I've now seen 2 fights each from Jennings and Perez, and won't be in any hurry to watch more.[/QUOTE] I agree, horrendous fight.
