Jennings Tabs Bermane Stiverne To Beat Deontay Wilder

By Edward Chaykovsky

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 I’m 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, he’s very questionable. I can’t pinpoint nothing really good on him other than power because we haven’t seen anything," Jennings told On The Ropes Boxing Radio.

"I’m just being real careful with my analysis of the fight and I will have to go with what’s better on paper, experience wise and what I’ve 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.

"I’m not looking for an easy fight just to stay active, but as long as it doesn’t 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 I’ll have to do what I have to do and be patient and wait," Jennings said.

Stiverne can hit. Wilder is getting stopped.

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…
