Crawford-Indongo Results: Jennings, Whyte Get TKO Wins

By Ryan Burton

Lincoln, Nebraska - Former heavyweight title challenger Bryant Jennings (20-2) returned to the ring with a TKO victory over Daniel Martz (15-4-1).  The fight was Jennings' Top Rank debut after a two and a half year layoff.  Jennings started off fast while Martz was already fading in the first round.  Martz went down three times in the second with the referee waiving the bout off after the third knockdown.  A combination of punches sent Martz to the canvas for the final time at the 2:18 mark of the second round.

In the first bout of the evening, heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte (21-1) entered the ring for the first time since his December victory over Dereck Chisora that was a 2016 Fight of the Year candidate. The Matchroom promoted fighter won his first fight on US soil, stopping Malcolm Tann (24-6) in 3 rounds. A right left two-punch combination to the body sent Tann down for a fourth and final time. The official time of the stoppage was 2:36.

Later tonight WBO/WBC super lightweight champion Terence Crawford (31-0) and WBA/IBF super lightweight champion Julius Indongo (22-0) will clash in a fight for all four major belts. The winner will be the undisputed champion of the division and the first four belt holder in fifteen years and first time ever in the super lightweight division. The fight along with Oleksandr Gvozdyk-Craig Baker will air on ESPN. The rest of the card will be streamed on the ESPN App.
