Bryant Jennings fires warning to Joe Joyce, wants other UK heavyweights

Former world title challenger Bryant Jennings in on a mission to beat up the best British heavyweights out there.

So much so, Jennings wants to take care of Joe Joyce on July 13 and then go after the likes of Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte.

The American suffered a setback against Oscar Rivas lately, the man who opposes Whyte next in London.

Intent on putting his career back on track, Jennings sees a win over Joyce as the key to a future redemption.

Jennings holds good wins over former European Champion Alexander Dimitrenko, Artur Szpilka and Mike Perez.

“Victory on the road against Joyce will kick-start his world title hopes again.

The Philadelphia contender says: “This is a high-risk, good-reward fight. It makes getting in the ring worth it. I don’t mind the test. I don’t mind the challenge. That’s just who I am.
“I am the only one who can beat myself. Nobody can beat me. When I’ve lost, it’s been because of me, not my opponent.”

And Jennings warned this is just a start of a mission to topple British heavyweights adding: “I am ready to go now. The Oscar Rivas fight is in the past, and I’m ready for the challenge that’s ahead of me.

“After this, I’m coming after all the other UK heavyweights. They are the ones running the division.”


Bryant’s promoter Bob Arum added: “People will see how dangerous Bryant Jennings really is.

“I wouldn’t be surprised to see him easily beat Joe Joyce. Bryant has fought the best heavyweights in the world, and Joe has seen nothing like him as a professional.”

Joyce v Jennings forms part of a top division double-header at the O2 Arena. Daniel Dubois v Nathan Gorman for the vacant British title accompanies the United Kingdom versus United States clash.
