Scott: Bryant Jennings is Going To Beat Wladimir Klitschko

By Dominic Verdin

Heavyweight contender Malik Scott is fully backing unbeaten Bryant "By-By" Jennings (19-0, 10KOs) to pull off a humongous upset on April 25th, when he challenges WBO/IBO/WBA/IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko at New York's Madison Square Garden.

Jennings is actually the mandatory challenger to the only title not currently held by Klitschko. Last December at the WBC's convention in Las Vegas, the sanctioning body ordered the winner of last month's heavyweight title fight, between Deontay Wilder and Bermane Stiverne, to face Jennings next. Wilder captured the WBC crown, but Jennings was already neck deep in negotiations to face the number one fighter in his division.

"Bryant Jennings is going to beat Wladimir Klitschko and I have a list of reasons on why I believe that," Scott told

"I just believe in the Jennings work ethic. He has the best trainer in the world in Fred Jenkins. The kid has been boxing for only four years and got to this level. I believe that anything that he's doing...if it's not broke he don't need to fix nothing. I believe in his work ethic, I believe in his chin, I believe his power is underrated and I believe in his conditioning. I'm just an admirer or hard work and dedication. All he has to do is be 'BY' Jennings and listen to Fred Jenkins to beat Wladimir Klitschko."
