Jennings confirms Pulev talk is just hearsay

Phil Jay 01/07/2013

Undefeated American heavyweight Bryant ‘By By’ Jennings has told WBN that the current rumours doing the rounds of a fight with highly-ranked European champion Kubrat Pulev are nothing more than speculation.

The 28 year-old Philadelphian, who has built up an impressive 17-0 resume in just three years as a pro, is looking to take the next step up the ladder to a potential world title shot, but stated that no contact had been made with the rugged Bulgarian or his team.

“My people have told me nothing on a fight with Kubrat Pulev,” Jennings told World Boxing News when quizzed on the contest.

“At the moment anything is just hearsay and I will no more on who is next soon.”

Jennings is currently signed with Kathy Duva’s Main Events promotional outfit, who also have Steve Cunningham and Tomasz Adamek on their books. That means either of those former champions could be the natural progression for the ex-basketball player as he plots a higher ranking with all four major organisations.

On the other hand, Pulev, 32, has been linked to all manner of opponents as he seeks out his next challenge or possible EBU title defence, with Alexander Dimitrenko the latest fighter to be put forward to purse bids by the European body for a summer clash.
