PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania, April 24, 2015- North Philly’s Own Cheesesteaks, Sumo Steaks, is proud to announce that their friends, fellow North Philadelphians, and big-hearted local community role models, Bryant Jennings and Jesse Hart, will both soon be making major career defining strides. Bryant Jennings will be fighting for the World Heavyweight Championship and Jesse Hart will be fighting on the card of the most anticipated fight of the century, Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas.
This Saturday, April 25th, Philadelphia’s own undefeated American boxer, Bryant “By-By” Jennings, (19-0, 10 KOs) takes on Wladimir “Dr. Steelhammer” Klitschko (63-3, 54 KOs) from Kiev, Ukraine at the famed Madison Square Garden. Jennings will be joined by the legendary trainer Fred Jenkins and promoter Gary Shaw. “Bryant is very focused with a strong work ethic. We believe he’s going to upset Klitschko and are looking forward to “By-By” bringing the World Heavyweight Championship belts back to Philadelphia.” said Billy Creagh of Sumo Steaks.
Sumo Steaks is equally excited for Jesse Hart (16-0,13 KOs) and D&D Management Team (Doc Nowicki & David Price) who will be fighting Mike Jimenez (17-0,11 KOs) from Chicago IL, on the biggest boxing card in history, Mayweather vs. Pacquiao. They will come together on May 2nd, in Las Vegas, NV. at the MGM Grand for the USBA Super Middleweight Title. He will be joined by his cornermen, Fred Jenkings Sr, Danny Davis, Corey AKA Hundew MacDonald and Jesse’s father, Eugene “Cyclone” Hart, along with his promoter Top Rank’s Bob Arum.
Coincidently In 1971, North Philadelphia’s Joe Frazier beat Muhammad Ali and won the World Heavyweight Championship at Madison Square Garden in which was called “the fight of the century.” It was so big the ring announcer said, “Ladies and Gentlemen, we are not going to introduce the celebrities at ringside tonight, because everybody is here tonight.”
Located in North Philadelphia, home to boxing champions, Bernard Hopkins, Danny Garcia and the late Joe Frazier, Sumo Steaks opened in 2013 and was recently voted top Cheesesteak in Philly. They have been fortunate to get to know both Jesse and Bryant and their teams through various charity events and other activities. Sumo Steaks is also a proud sponsor of boxing events in Philadelphia. For more information, contact Billy Creagh.

Throngs turned out to enjoy free cheesesteaks courtesy of Billy Creagh, owner of Sumo Steaks and sponsor of the event. The 900AM-WURD street team registered 35 new voters, processed 32 library card requests, and filled out L.O.O.P (Longtime Owner Occupant Program) applications as part of WURD’s efforts to stave off gentrification through education and access for Philly residents without digital/internet access.
The line for registration (and free steaks!) snaked around the corner as city residents responded to WURD’s call with vigor, many citing their belief that “no one in the city government has answered our calls for assistance” and “it’s great to see the radio station out in the street.” Stopping buses and flagging down cars, the 900A-MWURD street squad of super-interns Starsha Divine Frierson, Carter Reed and Amanda Wallace went above and beyond in support of morning show host Phil Allen and producer Keaton Nichols.
