Sheika vs Wilson: Bryant Jennings Added To The Card

Atlantic City, NJ—Unbeaten heavyweight Bryant “Bye Bye” Jennings faces another stiff test when he boxes fellow-Philadelphian David Williams in a scheduled six-round heavyweight contest evening, April 23, in the Palladium Ballroom at Caesars Atlantic City.

Topping the seven-bout card is a scheduled 12-round contest between Omar Sheika, of Paterson, NJ, and Garrett Wilson, of Philadelphia, PA, for the vacant united States Boxing Association (USBA) cruiserweight title.  The first of seven fights begins at 7.30 p.m. in the 1,450-seat ballroom, the first time it has been used for boxing.

Jennings, 26, earned a six-round decision over Theron Johnson, of Chicago, IL, in his last fight Feb. 26 at Bally’s Atlantic City.  He is 6-0, 3 K0s. 

As an amateur, Jennings made it to the finals of the National Golden Gloves and the National PAL, losing each time by decision to veteran lefty Lenroy Thompson.

Williams, 33. is making his first start in two years after compiling a 6-3-1 record with two knockouts.  He was scheduled to fight March 8 at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, FL, but his fight, scheduled as a walkout bout, was canceled due to time constraints.

A pro since 2003, Williams has not had many problems with unbeaten opposition.  He was the only man to defeat Michael Carr, of Pittsburgh, PA, who was 10-0 when Williams outpointed him in 2003.  Williams also was the first boxer to defeat Adam Harris, of Worcester, MA, when he met in 2009.

In his most ambitious start, Williams was stopped in seven rounds by Aaron Williams, of Las Vegas, when they fought in 2009.  Williams was 18-1-1 at the time.

Five additional fights complete the card.
