Former world heavyweight title challenger Bryant Jennings claims he is fighting on an upcoming card at the O2 Arena in July.
Jennings posted a video on Twitter with a caption saying that he will fight on July 13 at the O2 Arena although his fight has yet to be officially announced.

What still needs to be determined is who Jennings will face. There is a strong possibility that Jennings would fight Joe Joyce, who was previously announced to fight on the card without an opponent. Joyce's manager Sam Jones did post a poll on Twitter asking people who should Joyce fight with Jennings winning the poll. Throughout the past couple of days, activity on both Jennings' and Jones' Twitter strongly hint that the fight is either a done deal or close to being finalized.
This would be Jennings' first fight since being stopped by Oscar Rivas back in January in the main event of a Top Rank on ESPN+ card from Verona, New York. Jennings once challenged for the unified WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight titles back in 2015, but was unsuccessful. Since then, Jennings won five of his last seven fights.
The July 13 card will be headlined by the BBBofC British heavyweight title fight between unbeaten rising contenders Nathan Gorman and Daniel Dubois. That card will be streamed on ESPN+ in the United States and will be televised on BT Sport in the United Kingdom.
