PHILADELPHIA’S Fred Jenkins has been around the sport of boxing for well over 40 years and, after his own boxing career was cut short due to a head injury he suffered, training fighters proved to be his calling. Having learnt his trade from legendary figures such as Milt Bailey and Stan Williams, Jenkins began working with fighters in the early 1970s.
Soon enough, Jenkins would guide fighters all the way to the top. Yet one thing Jenkins has always wanted is a heavyweight champion of the world to call his own. He believes he has found one in unbeaten 30-year-old Bryant Jennings.
Jennings, 19-0(10), will challenge the mighty Wladimir Klitschko in New York on April 25 and Jenkins says he will see to it that the time he has invested in the sport will be paid back in full with an upset victory.
