Jennings Edges Perez, Ref's Deduction Sealed Deal

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=Ravens Fan;14801390]His right hand was in the way? For much of the fight Perez had his hands down at his waist. I bet if Jennings threw even a lazy jab on somewhat of a regular basis Perez wouldn't have been…
