He runs 10 miles a day, abstains from alcohol, and works a full-time job. This dedication, combined with his unique in-ring style, has helped transform North Philadelphia's Bryant Jennings into one of America's top heavyweight prospects.
On Saturday afternoon, the North Philadelphia resident will look to continue his impressive year and shed his prospect status as he meets Chris Koval at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.
Jennings (14-0, 6 KOs) has won three fights this year, including an impressive ninth-round stoppage of former world champion Siarhei Liakhovich.
Some days, before the sun rises, Jennings, 27, leaves his house in West Park and runs down Girard Avenue before completing a loop around Kelly and West River Drives.
