Pretty sensible. It wouldnt end well. Need to get Total back in here to answer this one. It could simply be because DeMori has announced on twitter that a contract is being negotiated with him to fight Samuel Peter in December. Both are Don King fighters so you'd think it was possible to make.

You said he has been waiting for a break through fight and then he turned down his chance?

Then blame it on DK

I can assure you De Mori accepted it. I was negotiating the fight with Main Event Promotions. DKP knocked it back, saying they had plans for him. There's some talk of a Sam Peter comeback fight.

Thanks for the update Ippy.

But I think Sam peters might be just as dangerous, he comes out hard against lesser opposition

Definitely a tough fight mate, if in fact it comes off. We knew Jennings was a hell of a hard one too, especially in his home town, but it was too good an opportunity to turn down. Especially with it being shown live on TV. We had a deal agreed inside a couple of hours. Hopefully DKP stick to their word.

i talk to Mark on FB and he said he wanted the fight and accepted but for some reason other parties stepped in and stopped him

dont understand the hate for Mark... ****ing top bloke, nice as hell and works his ass off to be the best he can

I doubt he'll have a fan left if he fights another can after foregoing Bryant Jennings, King or no King.
