It was assumed by many, that Wladimir Klitschko vs. Bryant Jennings was a solid go for April 25, 2015, at the Barclays Center in New York.
Alas this happens to be far from fact. According to Berndt Boente, Wladimir’s manager, their negotiations with team Jennings have hit a wall, and team Kliltschko is still looking for an opponent.
“At this moment we are far from an agreement. Bryant Jennings was our top choice. Was. At this time, our negotiations have stalled. An opponent can be anyone who is available for that date and who will be approved by our partners HBO in USA, and RTL in Germany,” said Boente.
Aside from Jennings, there are only a couple other names that could potentially fit the bill: Shannon Briggs, or the winner of Stiverne vs. Wilder. Despite Jennings being a very formidable opponent, and Briggs trying to get that fight in ways unimaginable, I believe that despite the lack of his experience it is Deontay Wilder who would pose the most interest in a fight against Wladimir Klitschko.
“We want to figure our opponent out in the next two weeks, and hope to keep the date and the venue. If it doesn’t work out, it is possible that we will move the fight to Europe, or postpone it to a later date,” concluded Boente.
