Bryant Jennings Dominates Steve Collins Over Ten
Prudential Center, Newark, New Jersey - Up and coming heavyweight Bryant Jennings (14-0, 6KOs) dominated Steve Collins (25-2-1, 18KOs) to win a ten round unanimous decision to win the vacant USBA championship. All three of the official judges saw it 100-89.
Jennings started the fight with a quick jab and moved around the ring to feel Collins out. Jennings started to open up in the fourth. He drilled Collins with a big uppercut that nearly put him down. The referee ruled it as a knockdown because Collins was held up by the ropes. Two rounds later, Collins was rocked in the sixth but stayed on his feet. Jenning unloading more punishment in the ninth round and couldn't finish off Collins, who lasted until the final bell.
the guy who he fought was quite awful. if he's going anywhere he should have been able to step it up and get him out.Comment by joe strong on 06-17-2012

That was a great win by Jennings.Comment by 4Corners on 06-17-2012
Would love to see Jennings fight Adamek, Helenius, Banks, Chagaev, etc. The best American HW by far. Still don't see Jennings becoming the next really good American HW.Post a Comment/View More User Comments (10)
