    "Based on the lack of interest in from the Jennings camp, we spoke with Kevin Lerena's promoter, Rodney Berman. Lerena is ranked number 2 [at bridgerweight].

    “The WBC even sanctioned the fight. However, the Jennings clan, Top Rank and the ESPN network returned to the table to strike a deal.”

    At the start of the negotiations, Jennings wanted a large amount of money to face Rivas. According to the paper, ESPN decided to accept Jennings' initial request.

    “I received the signed contract from Jennings in the last few hours. As for Rivas, he will sign it on Friday at our office. It will finalize everything," Michel said.

    Soon there will be a light bridgerweight and super bridgerweight weight classes with 25 champions in each of those divisions.

    Can't think of anyone more deserving than Jennings, who hasn't fought in almost 2 years and has lost his last 2 fights.

    Now boxing is going to end up with 2 weight classes that no one cares about, Cruiserweight and Bridgerweight which sounds fucking retarded but wait, its named after a heroic kid, how douchy of me, what they should do is reshuffle 175 to heavyweights, 175 jump to Cruiserweight is a steep one, how long ago was it that 175 moved to Cruiserweight and became successful?

    With weight classes so close together, I'm surprised there's no weight class in the 180lb range.
