it’s doing better than the cruiserweight circus – or the flyweight circus

PEREZ’S career has been largely wasted. I remember back in ’08 I was chatting with some guys in the FROCH camp and they were telling me all about Mikey who was based in Ireland and had just turned over (into the pros). The plan was to bring him along like gangbusters and to be honest, he would have had a clear path back then. I think he was 3-0.
Everytime I met up with them I kept bringing up his name, but then he seemed to lose momentum and has never gained it back.
It’s a crying shame that he had that tragic fight with Abdusalamov, because that was his break out party and he definitely lost something after that fight. I hope I’m wrong, but I think he’s lost the heart and drive he showed in that fight to compete at the top level.

I’ve not seen Jennings box before, but if TARK is correct about him, he will win a comfortable decision over Mikey and that will be that.

It’s a shame, cause Perez is so much better than we’ve seen in the pros and we’ll probably not see his peak in a pro boxing ring.

Scary! I find myself agreeing with two posters on the same thread. Fight A and Tark, good posts. Im not a big Stiverne fan but as much as wilder hasn’t earned it, I kinda wanna see them in together. Praying to see wilder viciously KOed

if you are going to quote me, do it honestly.

I said Pulev is more talented than anyone Vlanessa has fought since David Haye.

TARK

The faster all these guys fight each other the better… They’ve been fighting around each other for years.. One of the worst offenders was Arreola.. He’s been around for a long time and fought a minimum number of contenders.

I like the fact that Scott fought Glazkov, Chisora, and Wilder… Stiverne fought Arreola twice… Adamek fought Glazkov… Fury vs Haye was scheduled and rescheduled… Wladimir fought Povetkin… Takam fought Thompson… Takam fought Perez… and now Jennings v Perez and Fury v Chisora II are happening.

A lot is happening that will lead to super good heavyweight fights.

Actually the winner may end up fighting Wilder next since he is the mandatory and beats Stiverne. Just saying.

“maybe the winner can fight wilder” – Good idea but it won’t happen. Wilder’s already the mandatory for the WBC title. IMO he should have to fight the winner of this bout for that mandatory shot.

I don’t hate Klitschko, or any other man.

I hate the way Pulev has been forced to wait for his chance to fulfill his dreams.

TARK

Yo says.., “Mike Weaver had a few muscles.”

Yes I agree Yo.., Mike Weaver wrecked Big John Tate. Mike worked at his craft. He smashed Gerrie Coatzee too.

But Mike was a ’80s fighter more than a 70’s guy… Holmes too… Nobody from the 70’s would fight Holmes except Norton, Shavers, and Ali…

Ali was dead broke though… That’s the only reason he finally “fought” Holmes.

TARK

Anonymous says.., “Tark; Blue Lewis, Jimmy Ellis, Joe Bugner, Karl Mildenburger, Henry Cooper et al were usually in good shape too.”

You obviously didn’t see the Milderberger-Cooper fight. Karl was damned fat—but opened up cuts on Cooper with left hands… The referee robbed him blind.

Bugner was often fat too… Ellis as well… Blue not so much.

maybe the winner can fight wilder

Fight Aficionado

This is a rescheduled bout if I remember correctly. Perez got injured in camp last time it was scheduled correct? It’s a good fight. I’d have taken Jennings regardless but Perez hasn’t been the same since that Mago tragedy so I’m even more confident Jennings wins this.

Posted June 10, 2014 3:08 pm

yeah jennings looks similar to norton. would not mind seeing carlos takem take on lucas browne or glazkov or the winner of jennings/perez. He did well against perez in their first fight.

Perez drew with Takam, but Takam easily beat Thompson. Of course I think thompson got lazy, he came in at 270, which indicates he was out of condition more than usual, but Takam is pretty good, and I don’t think Perez had recovered from the Mago fight mentally yet. Perez mental state will determine the winner, he is very slick and skilled, but Jennings improves every fight. I just like the fact contenders are fighting, this is Perez’s third tugh fight in a row, hats off the the dude.

Bryatt Jenning is only 6′ 2″ but his reach is almost equal to very tall boxers like Tyson Fury and Nikolay Valuev.

Mike Perez vs Bryatt Jenning.
When both are at their peak I would say Mike Perez has an edge. But the fight with Magomed Abdusalamov seems to have taken a lot out of Perez. So under current circumstance Jenning has a edge.

Posted June 10, 2014 2:11 am 


TARK

Rod…., I never saw any heavyweight in that kind of condition in the ’70s…

Bonavana fat… Frazier fat… Chuvalo fat… Foreman fat… Quarry fat… Ali fat… Wepner fat… Mac Foster fat… Coopman fat… Evangelista fat… Roman fat… Young fat… Mathis fat… Stander fat… Dunn fat… Lubbers fat… Doyle fat… Cane fat… Neumann fat… Ward fat… LaDoux fat… Bailey fat… Agosto fat… Polite fat… Kruger fat… McAlinden fat… August fat… English fat…

Only guys in real condition were Ken Norton and Ernie Shavers.. At least they looked ripped for all their fights.

jennings reminds me of a 70s heavy. Lean athletic and skilled. He will do well until he meets a good heavy over 6’5. In todays era he is on the small side like haye but like haye makes up for it with freakish athletic ability.

Posted June 9, 2014 11:11 pm

jennings will boxing on his feet and use the jab to maintain distance and pace. Perez will not be able to catch jennings. Jennings by wide UD.

Posted June 9, 2014 11:08 pm 


TARK

This should be an easy one for Jennings… Perez already lost to Takam in a flagrant robbery – but this should be a great heavyweight fight.

Next up for Jennings should be the winner of Wilder-Stiverne—which should be Wilder to my reckoning… The heavyweight division is really heating up in North America — we’ll soon give Europe a run for their money.

the heavywts are good.

Yet another example of heavyweight contenders facing each other with the one exception being of course WILDER!!

PereZ many fights in Cuba. Fighting for yrs. superior boxeo.

Jennings all the way.

The USA is blinded by Wilders windmilling to the fact this guy is their best prospect.

And we all know Travis doesn’t move very well but Jennings does. In addition Jennings has no gas tank issues which is another department where he has an edge over Perez.

Posted June 9, 2014 3:46 pm

Perez does well against aggressive fighters who open up. Besides Takam he had a hard time with Travis Walker simply because of his jab and movement.

Posted June 9, 2014 3:41 pm 


punch

I was high on Perez after Mago but his controversial draw against Takam speaks volumes about how ineffective he is with boxers who move well, have decent jab and inside game. Jennings is a better version of Takam and will beat Perez to the punch. If he doesn’t get drawn into a brawl, he wins.

Posted June 9, 2014 3:37 pm

This is a good fight. Based on boxing ability Perez should win, Jennings has a chance if he can make it a brawl or catch Perez with a monster shot. Expect Perez to win but he’ll need to be at his best. Agree with other posters that this is the kind of fight the division needs. Either one of these guys would beat Stiverne.

Posted June 9, 2014 3:35 pm 


Perez win

Just can’t see how Jennings is going to win this. Mike is better in every area IMO. Should be a good fight for 4 or 5 rounds ( or until Perez knocks Jennings out cold)

Posted June 9, 2014 3:27 pm 


gumboot

Taken v Thompson, Jennings v Perez are the sort of fights that need to happen. Not only does it help sort the real contenders out but it gives good competition and experience. Wilder take note. Winner? Tough one but, IMHO, Jennings

Posted June 9, 2014 2:05 pm

Fairly even fight, may the best man win. I’ll be rooting for Bye Bye Jennings though. However, I’ll be completely ok with a Perez win.

Perez is a good fighter, but I give th edge to Jemmings. By By!

Perez wins easily. Jennings is nothing special.

Going with Jennings be decision. Perez doesn’t have the work rate plus Jennings is more mobile.

Posted June 9, 2014 12:03 pm

Good looking fight, challenger fighting challenger, exactly what the division needs. There are more and more of these types of fights today. Finally a number of good fighters have stopped trying to protect the 0 on their record.

This is gonna be a good one. Nice step up for Jennings and a good test for Perez. Hope he’s gotten over that thing with Mago…
