Bryant Jennings’ fight with fellow unbeaten heavyweight Michael Perez had been barely two weeks away from happening this past May when Perez suffered an injury, delaying their bout by two months to July 26 on the undercard to Gennady Golovkin vs. Daniel Geale at Madison Square Garden.

Jennings says that delay didn’t have an affect on him physically, though it perhaps altered his calendar for the rest of the year.

“I’m always ready. I’m always in shape. It didn’t really affect me,” Jennings told BoxingScene.com last month. “There’s no physical setbacks unless I get injured. I kind of was peaking, but I’m always peaking. I live at the top floor, so there’s nothing. I’m always in shape. That’s just me.”

But he did say the delay “threw me through a loop a little bit” with the timing.

“Not [with] what I definitely was going to do, just the possibilities that could’ve took place,” he said. “Maybe I could’ve fought in May and fought maybe in August, but now since I’m fighting in July, that’ll just change everything, so the timing just maybe kind of screwed everything up, because the possibilities are there. I was willing to be ready, be back whenever. Just a little setback, that’s it.”

I like Jennings positive attitude and his dedication to boxing. Along with Wlad, he's probably the fittest heavyweight.
