WBC Heavyweight Hijinks: Bryant Jennings en route to title shot vs. Stiverne-Wilder winner

No true boxing fan holds any admiration for the alphabet soup organizations that control the title belts: the WBA, WBC, IBF, WBO, and others. I must admit I sometimes find their antics amusing, in the sense that they add the colors of shameless stupidity and corruption to the modern history of the sport. Past that very mixed statement, there is nothing positive to say about them...

America finally has a boxing heavyweight we can get behind

(Credit: I contend the reason many people believe boxing to be a dead sport (although that’s not even close to realistic), is because there has been a lack of legitimate American fighters in the heavyweight division. The division popularized by guys like Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, George Foreman, Larry Holmes, and Muhammad Ali has declined over the years...

LOS ANGELES, CA - To the casual eye boxing’s heavyweight division gave the impression of being on life support over the last few years, to American’s at least.
