Default Bryant Jennings "Grant turned down a fight..." for March

New article

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Says he'd "love the winner of the Mitchell-Banks" and would
"take Robert Helenius in a heartbeat."

Grant would be a good trial horse for Jennings. Very good. Too bad. I'm glad Jennings is hungry though. We can always use guys who put in the work like Jennings has. In the gym, when he gets TV dates, when he gets hurt, when he steps up. He's put the effort in and it's paying off. I'd love to see him take the next step in his opposition. BUT it'd have been better to take a stepping stone, in my opinion, than wait. Stepping stones are useful. They actually help you step up.

Hmm... interesting.

A good 2013 for Jennings to me would go something like: Travis Walker, Steve Cunningham, Alexander Dimitrenko

Agreed.

As I've said a few times, I think Jennings could be the next Holyfield.

I guess Grant would have been an ok option for Jennings but I'd prefer someone else if its going to be on NBC. Cunningham would be a good match up and easy to make for his next fight. He mentioned Helenius and I'd really like that but I don't see it happening.

I don't think he gets a shot at Wlad in April like been mentioned. Jennings shouldn't be on Wlad's radar until 2014 at the earliest.

The likes of Grant/Helenius would be great for Jennings especially in a division dominated by giants, obviously Helenius would be the better test but i still think Grant's size and power would be a good stepping stone for Jennings. Jennings vs Banks/Mitchell would be a huge fight and to me would determine the best US heavyweight, another great fight would be Jennings vs Glazkov.

Sounds like Jennings wants to fight someone better than Grant. Got to love this guys attitude. Hopefully he can get a slot on HBO. I am becoming more and more of a Jennings fan.......

I wonder who Jennings will be fighting?

Magomed Abdusalamov or Joe Hanks would be good choices, or perhaps a veteran like Fres Oquendo.
