"I've been in the gym since my last fight back in June so I'm ready to go," he said to in an e-mail statement. "My trainer Fred Jenkins and I have been grinding, working on new things, trying to improve on what I do best, which is to box my opponents ears off.

"I know Szpilka is a big star in him native country, but his "0" has got to go, and his fans must deal with him losing for the first time. I'm healthy and I feel I've improved my ring intelligence since I fought last.

"An opportunity like this, to fight on a big stage like HBO, is a dream come true," Jennings continued. "When I first stepped in the gym, which was about five years ago, I always envisioned myself fighting on HBO. Now it's time to show the world what Bryant Jennings is all about. I want to thank my promoters Gary Shaw and Antonio Leonard as well as my manager James Prince for getting me this opportunity. HBO needs some fresh heavyweight talent to showcase and I'm the one to take make it happen. I'm coming to win and win impressively.

I plan to follow in the footsteps of the greats that have fought there before and continue on my path to greatness. God willing, everything goes as planned. Philadelphia will definitely be in the house and I want to personally thank all my fans for their support," Jennings concluded.
