When asked for his analysis, Bryant Jennings (19-0, 10KOs)†said he was†leaning in the direction of WBC heavyweight champ Bermane Stiverne (24-1-1, 21KOs) retaining his title when he defends against mandatory challenger Deontay Wilder (32-0, 32KOs).

The World Boxing Council ordered the winner of Stiverne-Wilder to face Jennings, who won a WBC eliminator last month with a twelve round split decision over previously undefeated Mike Perez.

"I think Iím leaning a little more towards Stiverne, for the simple fact that he is the better technical fighter and he does have power as well. Deontay just has a lot of questions, heís very questionable. I canít pinpoint nothing really good on him other than power because we havenít seen anything," Jennings told On The Ropes Boxing Radio.

"Iím just being real careful with my analysis of the fight and I will have to go with whatís better on paper, experience wise and what Iíve seen from each fighter thus far."

There is still no date for Stiverne-Wilder. Due to a hand injury suffered by Stiverne, the fight is being targeted for the end of the year. Jennings is planning to stay active but won't do anything stupid to jeopardize his title shot.

"Iím not looking for an easy fight just to stay active, but as long as it doesnít tamper with my position in being the mandatory, of course I would want something to stay busy. If it takes away from me still being in that mandatory position, then Iíll have to do what I have to do and be patient and wait," Jennings said.

Bermane also has the punch. Except Bermane also has real skills. And a chin.

Bermane needs 2 get bout 2 the later rounds...Many doubts & questions of Wilder, he has the punch...

Can't see how Stiverne loses this. Wilder's career has always been a joke.

Bermane is not quite as easy to hit as claimed above. Ok he isn't no Chris Byrd or David Haye but still. He also has a great chin to back it up though. I think Bermane could survive a few of those bombs. He survived a mauling from a very tough Chris Arreola, a fighter who actually can box. ...
