BRYANT JENNINGS:

"I'm always ready for whatever, so don't ever slack up or slip up because you gonna see me one day...This year I want to break on the scene and capitalize on my career, both financially and my place in the division inside of the ring also... I want to let the world know that a star is born and the heavyweight division is not dead and Bryant Jennings is here to keep it alive," stated heavyweight contender Bryant Jennings, who talked about his future plans and much more. Check it out!

PC: How is everything going, man?

BJ: I'm good, man. I'm good with the hands still (laughing).

PC: And due to all of the injuries, hopefully we get to see you put them to work soon. You have publicly said you would fight Klitschko or Mitchell.

BJ: Yeah, I don't know what's up with all of that. I just think they are looking for a better way out. I won't even say they ducking; they just looking for a better way out.

PC: Are you in the gym staying prepared or would you need a little bit of a notice?

BJ: I live in the gym, but a little notice would always be better. I'm in a situation where I'm always about 2 weeks away from being ready for a fight. Even when I'm chilling and all that, I'm good; can't nothing stop me.

PC: Do you have a preference as to which fight you would like between Klitschko or Mitchell if one was to become available?

BJ: Shit, the world title would be the best preference for me.

PC: I checked you out on 106&Park with Mike Tyson. I'm sure he is someone you followed growing up. What was that like, sharing a stage with him?

BJ: It was good to be on the set with Mike because Mike always has a ton of people watching him, so people were definitely tuned in. I was on there with him, so it was definitely a good thing. Just to be in the presence of someoneĀ…just to be sitting down at the same table with him was like, "Damn!" I went from sitting at the table with a bunch of people trying to make it to sitting at the table with someone who actually been there before.

PC: Off-set, did he offer any advice to you?

BJ: We didn't get a chance to really talk like that, but I'm quite sure if we would have, he would gave me some tips on a few things. Mike really knows boxing.

PC: If the two fights that you are hoping to get because of injuries don't come to fruition, is it still looking like March for you as far as a ring return?

BJ: Yeah! They have certain fights, like the winner out of some fights, but other than that, a world title shot and that's about it.

PC: If anyone from the Seth Mitchell camp or the Wladimir Klitschko camp is reading this interview, what do you say to them?

BJ: I'm always ready for whatever, so don't ever slack up or slip up because you gonna see me one day.

PC: What are your goals for this year?

BJ: This year I want to break on the scene and capitalize on my career, both financially and my place in the division inside of the ring also.

PC: Is there any name in particular you would want to get in there with next? 

BJ: No. I just want to fight international opponents and better competition where I can step forward in my career and I can be labeled as the best because I can't be the best if I'm not fighting the best. I can't accomplish that, so I need those guys to get me there.

PC: Are you willing, if given the opportunity, to go to Russia or one of these foreign countries to accomplish your goals of becoming a world champion or would you prefer to do it over here?

BJ: Yeah, I think that's gonna be the only way to do it. You just gotta do what you gotta do.

PC: I hope you land one of these big fights soon. Is there anything else you want to add?

BJ: They can find me on Twitter and Instagram @BYJennings. I want to let the world know that a star is born and the heavyweight division is not dead and Bryant Jennings is here to keep it alive.
