Shaw Says Jennings/Santana Will Be Back on HBO

NEW JERSEY - After HBO World Championship Boxing had one of their highest rated shows since 2012 with the Klitschko vs. Jennings championship bout on April 25th, Gary Shaw feels his fighters, Bryant Jennings (19-1, 10 KOs) and Francisco Santana (22-4-1, 11 KOs), can make quick comebacks to the big stage.

"There is no doubt in my mind that Bryant Jennings and Francisco Santana are fighters the fans want see," said Gary Shaw. "The viewership that HBO had on April 25th was fantastic and I believe Jennings and Santana had a lot to do with those high ratings.  Jennings because of his activity on social media.  Santana because he has a tremendous amount of Latin fans that support him.  With that being said, I believe both fighters, will be back on the big stage in the future."

Bryant Jennings gained a ton of respect for his gallant effort against Klitschko, in which he went the distance, giving Wladimir his toughest fight in recent years, proving he was deserving of a title shot.  Francisco Santana, who also went the distance with Sadam Ali, showed remarkable heart as he fought hard in every round, giving the fans their money's worth.

"Bryant Jennings proved he's an elite heavyweight contender with his performance against Klitschko," Gary Shaw continued. "Santana is a Mexican warrior and both fighters gained a lot of fans that night.  Both fighters pressed the action, taking the fight to their opponents, bringing excitement to the bout.  Many in attendance felt the scores for both Jennings and Santana were not reflective of their fights.  It was a lot closer then what the judges scorecards read.  Jennings and Santana both love being HBO fighters.  I have plans to bring them back to HBO."

Why? The ratings were big because of Wlad, who's HBO going to match Jennings up that's exciting?
