What I don’t like, looking at the photo, is Jennings’ left biceps.
Boxers shouldn’t do curls with barbells because you end up with a lot of ripped biceps. The development doesn’t stay thick all the way through the biceps they can easily get injured or torn. Curls with dumbbells work better because you rotate the wrists fire more muscle fibers. You develop more girth in the biceps near the shoulder, which helps torn biceps when you’re throwing hooks.
A good thing for arm strength is a lot of pullups using gymnastic rings… You can turn your wrists in any direction and fire all the fibers in the biceps — with makes for a nice thick evenly developed biceps, and very powerful if you can do like 30 of them.Posted January 15, 2014 12:39 am
This is a good fight for Jennings because it’s an undefeated southpaw who can punch a little bit — but not real hard… Szpilka is easy to hit though, so the remarks about boxing everybody’s ears off should apply to this fight.
Szpilka can’t box at all. He has no jab except as a distracter and measuring stick. It’s not a weapon. He’s strictly mover and swinger who loads the left hand and throws. He couldn’t take out the glass chinned Brian Minto so he’s no real threat as a puncher. He’s better than the washed up Liakhovich so it’s a small step up. It’s an easy win for Jennings and I’m not really that interested in the fight.
If Jennings fought Wilder, Fury, Chisora, Pulev, Perez, Stivern or Browne I would be very interested. I think he could beat them all but it would be tough sledding with Wilder, Fury or Pulev. Those fights could go either way. I don’t think Arreola would fight Jennings. Flat out.Posted January 15, 2014 12:24 am
Is the Polish guy in the US yet? Customs told him to GTFO because his paper work wasn’t in order. He had to fly right back home. It’s a shame if they end up canceling this fight because it’s a banging bout.Posted January 14, 2014 9:32 pm
Bryant is a very good fighter with all around boxing skills, but I dont see a superstar in the making, nothing jumps out at me with him, soild boxer though.Posted January 14, 2014 4:49 pm
to the clown below
jennings has better movement than szpilka? muahahhaha.. joke of the month..
Bryant is the Truth!! Good boxing brains and skills, but his biggest asset is his MOVEMENT. Footwork and Movement is the difference between a slugger and a boxer, the difference between a career full of victories from that which ends with the fighter in hospital or slurring his words. In the heavyweight division of today where guys are so big, having movement is like having wings. It’s what makes Mikey Garcia and Sergio Martinez great fighters. It’s the reason Floyd is still fresh and on top at 37yrs of age (apart from his defense of course – movement is a form of defense in itself). If I were a young fighter starting out, I would concentrate on Footwork, movement and defense. Bryant wins easy!!Posted January 14, 2014 10:07 am
Something is fishy Szpilka just fought in America…and all he has to do is fill out some form to say he was in prison and things would be ok.Maybe Szpilka or his team feels he isnt ready looking for a way to get out of the fight.Lets see if this happens now…and yes calling Szpilka a superstar is a joke,even in his own country.Lets just say hes one of the better hvwts. there…no more..no less.Posted January 14, 2014 9:07 am

Bryant ducked Pulev big time.Posted January 13, 2014 3:45 pm
No disrespect to Polish boxing but “Polish superstar”? come one that’s overstating it a bit. There’s never been a great Polish boxer in my lifetime.Posted January 13, 2014 12:48 pm
I doubt this will take place, apparently Spilkza doesn’t want any part of him.Posted January 13, 2014 12:24 pm
LENNOX LEWIS was interviewed by GARY NEWBON of SKY TV and gave perhaps his most honest and coherent interview I’ve seen (although, I missed the first 20 mins of hour long show).
He was quite candid on how he hadn’t had a trainer (merely coaches e.g. Pepe Correa -he called a cheerleader), before he was handled by the great and very much missed EMANUEL STEWARD).
He admitted that FRANK BRUNO was alot better than he thought when they matched in Cardiff and he was outjabbed and outhustled until he landed his Hail Mary left hook… He hadded that watched the VT, Frank took 15 unanswered head shots and showed great balance in not going down under them!!!!
He talked HOLYFIELD (admitting their 2nd fight was much closer than their first, even though he won big on the scorecards) and admitted due to incarceration and B, C class opponents (except HOLYFIELD) that MIKE TYSON was not 100% when they fought in 2002, because he had “not improved any since his loss to JAMES BUSTER DOUGLAS.”
Lennox says he ALWAYS intended to retire and this (KLITSCHKO, was his retirement fight)….
HE adds that VITALI had been training for him for over a year, whilst he was scheduled to face KIRK JOHNSON and then he was badgered into the TV date vs VITALI, which basically in his words he had a few weeks to get ready and only had 4 rounds of sparring with a 6’8″ guy!
Asked about whether or not he was behind on points he maintains that, “the intention was not to win on points, but to knock him out!”
He basically showed signs of great umbrage at this question and once again made issue that he took VITALI at short notice, whereas VITALI had him under his radar for over a year!
Lennox said he did not want to “blind the guy,” and the ref did, “a great job,” re the stoppage.
In Lennox’s eyes he beat Vitali, fair and square, no excuses and therefore no need for a rematch. “The hunger was gone…. He did not threaten to eat my kids….”
His parting comment was that, he got into boxing to, “rid boxing of all of the misfits,” and , “that’s pretty much what I’ve done!”
Interesting comments from Lennox, who did not like it one bit when being grilled on the Klitschkos and he resurrected his comments about having, “One Klitschko for breakfast and the other one for brunch!”
Just though you guys may be in interested in what Lennox had to say in his interview!!!!
Hopefully, I have not tried to impart any bias or self indulgence here..Posted January 13, 2014 11:43 am
