Gary Shaw Blown Away By Bryant Jennings Sparring

MIAMI, FL - As Bryant "By-By" Jennings(19-1, 10 KOs) prepares for this upcoming December 19th showdown with Luis Ortiz (23-0, 20 KOs), promoter Gary Shaw feels confident his fighter will be victorious after sitting in on a 16-round sparring session.   The action-packed 12-round fight will be televised live on HBO Boxing After Dark beginning at 10:15 p.m. ET/PT.
 
Shaw, who spent the day with Jennings and Coach John David Jackson at their training camp in Miami, witnessed an intense sparring session, where Bryant sparred with four different opponents.
 
"To see Bryant Jennings spar sixteen-rounds with four different guys was an amazing feat to watch," said Gary Shaw. "I've been around this sport for many years and I'm telling you, Jennings is one of the best athletes I've ever promoted.  The fact that he was able to handle all the fresh sparring partners that were rotating in was unbelievable.  John David Jackson is a great coach and both he and Jennings are working extremely well together.  Everyone will see a much more improved fighter when Jennings steps in the ring on December 19th."

Shaw was also impressed with strength and conditioning coach Edward Jackson, who's worked with Jennings for all his big fights.
 
"Edward Jackson is one of the best strength and conditioning coaches in boxing and I'm very pleased with his work." Gary Shaw continued. "His track record speaks for itself with all the great champions he's currently working with.  Amazingly Jennings could have gone a few more rounds if he wanted to and I credit Edward Jackson for getting him in tip top shape."

Tickets for the Dec. 19 HBO Boxing After Dark and HBO Latino Boxing event start at $25, $35 and $60 for ringside seats plus applicable fees and are available at the Turning Stone Resort Box Office by calling 315-361- 7469 or online at Ticketmaster (www.ticketmaster.com).
