Two heavyweight Titans will close out the 2015 boxing year with a bang on December 19, as former world title contender Bryant “By-By” Jennings (19-1, 10 KOs) takes on recently crowned WBA Interim Heavyweight belt holder Luis “The Real King Kong” Ortiz (23-0, 20 KOs) in a 12-round championship fight. The event will take place at Turning Stone Resort Casino, in Verona, New York and will be televised live on HBO Boxing After Dark.
Following two pull-outs in his scheduled fight against Billy Joe Saunders (22-0), Andy Lee (34-2-1) looks to put all doubt and need for scorecards aside with a decisive KO victory to retain his WBO middleweight championship.
After all the preparation, postponements and incessant hype since the summer, all the southpaws want to do now is get in the ring and finally swing leather at each other on Saturday (Showtime Extreme, 5 p.m. ET/PT, with prime-time replay at 9 p.m. ET/PT) at Manchester Arena.
