Consistency

I roll with the punches so I survive. I bob and weave, move my feet from side to side.
Jay Z

Boxing is a sport for people who think, and those who excel move around the ring, like a chess master.

Bryant “By By” Jennings is a breath of fresh air in boxing. He is mature, and he works diligently at his craft. What impresses me most about the pugilist is that he is able to remain humble and gracious at 19-0. Nonetheless, what concerns him most is how he carries himself as a person, as he accomplishes not only the daunting task of fighting and training…he also is a parent and to him, that is job number 1.

AXG Films recently caught up with him after a training session. After a brief introduction, we laughed, joked, and learned more about Jennings, and his humble beginnings in North Philadelphia.
