Hamer's awkward and tough, but I think Jennnings is made of sterner stuff than a talented but often mercurial Kingpin and he secures a competitive decision in a surprisingly fun fight.
It would be must-see TV.
Aesthetically they could really jazz.
It might even divert my live viewing attention away from a solid HBO or Showtime card, which NBC Sports has sometimes failed to do in the past.
If they were smart, they'd grab hold of Hamer with a long-term contract and start to put him on doubleheaders with Jennings against Gavern/Walker/Grano/Ibragimov types. Get him up to the mid-twenties and Jennings into the high teens at least, maybe twenty-something bouts. Then face them up for an epic showdown highly anticipated by new & casual fans hungry for a US hopeful, as well as by us - assuming both continue to entertain and not lose.
