US heavyweight Bryant Jennings (23-2, 13 KOs) will face Alexander Dimitrenko (41-3, 26 KOs) for the WBO International heavyweight title in the 12-round main event at the Ocean Resort Casino’s Ovation Hall in Atlantic City on August 18.

Jennings is a former world title challenger who boxed Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 at Madison Square Garden, surprising when he went the distant.

Winning an International strap from the WBO would see him climb that body’s heavyweight rankings. The goal of course would be the world title held by Klitschko conqueror and unified boss Anthony Joshua.
