Philly fighters are having a busy week-end fighting everywhere but Philly. They are “branching out” starting Saturday at MSG in NY where USBA heavyweight champion Bryant “By-By” Jennings takes his 17-0 (9) record against another unbeaten in southpaw Artur Szpilka, 16-0 (12), of Poland. Jennings is No. 4 in both WBC and WBA while Szpilka is No. 14 and 15 in same organizations.

Joining Jennings will be “can’t miss” super middleweight Jesse “Hardwork” Hart, 11-0 (10), as he steps up against Derrick “Superman” Findley, 20-11-1 (13), out of Gary, IN, in a 6. Both Jennings and Hart are trained by PA HOF trainer Fred Jenkins.

In D.C. “King” Gabriel Rosado, 21-7 (13), looks for his first win in 4 fights after 2 unsuccessful world title attempts as he takes on unbeaten Jermell “Iron Man” Charlo, 22-0 (11), out of Houston, TX, who won the USBA light middle title defeating Philly’s Demitrius Hopkins last June. Rosado has spent the last several weeks in PR with trainer Billy Briscoe. In October Rosado was turning around the fight against WBO middle champ Peter Quillan when the fight was prematurely stopped. Now Rosado hopes to drop back to light middleweight where he was the No. 1 contender.

At the Sand’s Casino in Bethlehem, PA, No. 9 WBA heavyweight Travis “My Time” Kauffman, 27-1 (20), of Reading, PA, takes on southpaw “Vicious” Vincent Thompson, 13-1 (2), out of Federal Way, WA. He has won 9 straight since his lone defeat. In the semi-windup flyweight Miguel “No Fear” Cartagena, 10-0 (3), meets Mexican veteran Felipe “Panterita” Rivas, 15-15-2 (9), over 8 rounds. Cartagena recently joined Mark Cipparone’s Club 1957 Management and new trainer Chino Rivas out of the Guts & Glory gym in W. Berlin, NJ.

On Friday Main Events & Peltz Boxing have an interesting main event between Curtis “Showtime” Stevens, 25-4 (18), of NY, and Patrick Majewski, 21-2 (13), of Atlantic City, NJ, at Resorts International, in AC. Stevens is coming off a loss to middle champ Gennady “GGG” Golovkin and Majewski losing in Denmark for 2 Inter-Continental titles. Both are looking to get back on track with a win. Underneath will be a pair of unbeaten heavyweights from PA as Philly’s Mark Rideout, 4-0-1 (1), meets Pittsburgh’s Fred Latham, 4-0 (2), in a 6.
