It's a heavyweight rematch that last time ended with a KO!
Oscar Rivas vs Bryant Jennings will be the first fight for the new WBC 'bridgerweight' (224lbs) title, WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman has confirmed. This is a rematch of their 2019 heavyweight fight, which Rivas won by stoppage. [@PugBoxing]— Michael Benson (@MichaelBensonn) March 25, 2021
