An intriguing heavyweight matchup was in the works for Oct. 17, but it’s not happening.

Bryan Jennings — fresh off an impressive performance in defeat to Wladimir Klitschko — was offered a fight with Cuban heavyweight Luis Ortiz, but turned it down.

The Philadelphian tweeted that he was unhappy with the money for the bout that would have taken place on the HBO PPV undercard of Gennady Golovkin-David Lemieux.
