For the next two weeks Gary Shaw Productions and Antonio Leonard Promotions heavyweight contender Bryant “By By” Jennings (18-0, 10 KOs) will be training in Las Vegas to prepare for his July 26th elimination fight against Mike “The Rebel” Perez (20-0-1, 12 KOs). Jennings is from Philadelphia, PA and will be here in Vegas to escape the distractions of family and friends just before one of the biggest fights of his career.
“I wanted to come out to Las Vegas for a couple of weeks to train in high elevation,” said Jennings. “I’ve been running up at Mt. Charleston in high elevation, training alongside Erislandy Lara. Leaving Philly for a couple of weeks is only going to help me focus on getting fully prepared for Perez. I’ll head back home to finish out camp after this week.”
“Jennings is taking this fight very seriously,” said promoter Gary Shaw. “I know he doesn’t want to leave any stones unturned. This is why he went out to Vegas to train with the best guys in the business. I know he’ll be in great shape for this fight. He’s a dedicated and amazing athlete.”
Jennings and Perez will be featured as the co-feature to Gennady Golovkin vs Daniel Geale presented by K2 Promotions, GGG Promotions in association with Gary Shaw Productions and Grange Old School Boxing on July 26th at Madison Square Garden and will be televised Live on HBO World Championship Boxing at 9:30pm ET/PT.
