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.

In the main event of the card, Terence Crawford became the undisputed junior welterweight champion after a stunning third-round knockout of Julius Indongo.

Crawford, 29, improved to a 32-0 win-loss with his victory at the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Nebraska, his home state, on Saturday.

The American landed a crushing shot to the body of Indongo (22-1) in the third round, unifying the WBA, WBC, IBF and WBO titles.

Crawford - who held the WBC and WBO titles prior to the fight - was dominant from the outset, and he knocked Indongo down during the second round.

While the Namibian managed to get up on that occasion, Crawford landed a huge body shot in the third for the knockout.

[QUOTE=4truth;17964685]Of course everyone else out there is fighting for the love of the sport. Jenning's resume dwarfs Wilder's, in fact in a match between the 2, I'd lean toward Jennings. He seems to lack power but he does everything else…

[QUOTE=OmarRueben;17964480]Jennings is an average boring dull boxer with little talent who obviously needs cash and will keep on fighting till the losses mount up if Jennings gets any big fights. Bryant is just another Tony T Thompson someone who fights…

[QUOTE=NEETzsche;17964479]Why didn't they face each other instead of taking turns knocking over cans? That undercard desperately needed another good fight[/QUOTE] exactly why not have Boring Jennings and Loser Whyte fight each other and eliminate the loser.

[QUOTE=nycsmooth;17964471]Jennings did not show much same fighter who may now be disillusioned that he has power against better opposition that will be shown that he has not... I believe the only reason he came back was he needs the money...…
