Default Bryant Jennings def Bowie Tupou KO5 after being dropped himself

Bowie Tupou will fight Bryant Jennings on December 8 in Philadelphia. Tupou is coming off a recent TKO loss against Malik Scott.

Looks like Bowie Tupou has grabbed the opportunity that Mark de Mori missed.

It would be a huge surprise if Bowie Tupou came away with the win. Jennings has the look of being one of the next big things.

Jennings needs to start knocking people out if he is going to considered a 'big thing' in the HW divison.

People watch HW boxing for KO's and power, if you want fights that go the distance you should be watching the less significant divisions.

Do yourself a favour and start watching some boxing before putting your foot in it again about things you plainly know little to nothing about

Some of the greatest contests between the greatest heavyweights in the history of the sport went the distance. Suggest you start with these two >>>

Holyfield vs Bowe: 30 round trilogy with 2 of the 3 fights going the distance.

Ali vs Frazier: 41 round trilogy with 2 of 3 fights going the distance and containing no knockout.

Knockouts are great. But the most important thing is fighting against well matched opponents and WINNING!

No research required to comment on here, otherwise I wouldn't fit in.

Surely you can't argue that most people watch HW boxing are expecting KO's? Surely.

"Jennings needs to start knocking people out if he is going to considered a 'big thing' in the HW divison".

You don't need to have a Tyson-like KO% to be considered a big thing. Just as examples, Holyfield's KO% was 50% and Ali's was 60%.

Knockouts are great. But you don't have to comatose the best in the division. You just have to beat them.

Point taken

The Klitshckos both have higher KO percentages than Mike Tyson, but you'd hardly use the word exciting to describe most of their fights.

Bryant Jennings has been active fighting 5 times this year by promoter Main Events, with 4 of these being on cable TV network NBC Sports.
He has looked impressive IMO & far from boring in his outings this year.
I expect some interesting potential matchups in 2013 for Jennings with the likes of Deontay Wilder on the horizon.

Jennings vs Wilder is a fascinating proposition. Likely to be a shock for Wilder.

without arguing for the sake of it, i'm sure u know he is meaning by needs ko's.

many people watch heavies to see big ko's. they don't care too much about the style, they just like to see 2 big units bash each other. they know both r probably not as fit as they could be too.

Many people love watching KOs at any weight, including heavyweight. But to suggest Jennings needs to start knocking people out if he is going to be considered a 'big thing' is an overly simplistic view IMO.

i agree, i would prefer to see a well conditioned, smart boxer using good tactics rather than a fat slugger winning by a lucky punch.

There can be appeal in both scenarios. But skills attract my attention much more than hit and miss aggression.
