Middleweight beltholder Peter Quillin could soon defend his WBO title against promotional stablemate Danny Jacobs.
Will Jennings rise to the challenge of Fedosov?
Unbeaten Philadelphia-based heavyweight prospect Bryant Jennings, who meets hammer-fisted Andrey Fedosov on June 14, had to rise from a second-round knockdown during his fifth-round stoppage win over Bowie Tupou in December.
Philadelphia heavyweight contender Bryant Jennings totaled five victories in as many bouts in 2012. A 28-year-old boxer-puncher who stands 6-foot-2, Jennings scoring three knockouts during that time, including stoppages in his past two fights.
"Fedosov hasn't had a chance to fight the top guys," said Fedesov's Chicago-based promoter, Bobby Hitz. "Once Fedosov gets a hold of Jennings, you'll see a brand new face in the heavyweight division."
A 27-year-old from Shuya, Russia, who stands 6-foot-1, Fedosov has won six of his past seven fights with five knockouts, all of which have been in the United States.
Fedosov has a three-fight winning streak since falling by split-decision to former contender Lance Whitaker in June of 2010, a bout during which Fedosov suffered a torn left bicep.
Coming off a fifth-round stoppage of Darnell Wilson in April, Fedosov is looking to continue his victory march against Jennings.
But Jennings is looking for improvement since facing Tupou.
Jennings-Fedosov is part of a triple-header to include welterweight Ray Nahr (25-2, 21 KOs) ending a more than two-year layoff with his returns against Puerto Rican welterweight Ronald Cruz (17-1, 12 KOs), having last been in the ring when he was stopped in the third round by Mike Alvarado in May of 2011.
Nahr is replacing Jaime Herrera (10-2, 5 KOs), who suffered a lower back injury during training. The card will also feature light heavyweights Sergei Kovalev (20-0-1, 18 KOs) and Cornelius White (21-1, 16 KOs).
