Cloutier’s Canada Corner
Rivas vs. Jennings Is Cancelled
By Daniel Cloutier
MONTRÉAL - The promoter of the GYM Group in Montréal, Yvon
Michel, confirmed the cancellation of the rematch between
the Montrealer Colombian Oscar Rivas and the American Bryant
Jennings. Yvon Michel revealed that Jennings refused to get
a vaccination for Covid-19.
In January 2019 in Verona, New York, Rivas beat Jennings by
TKO in the 12th round in a NABF North American championship.
This rematch, scheduled originally for October 22nd at the
Montréal Olympia Theater, was a WBC Bridgerwewight (224
pounds) world championship.
If Jennings accepts finally to get a vaccination against
Covid-19, the fight will be rescheduled in the next months.
We will see what Jennings will decides.
