Bryant Jennings has arrived as an American heavyweight worth watching after tonight's one-sided beatdown of former titlist Siarhei Liakhovich, stopping the veteran after nine rounds of dominance.

Jennings (13-0, 6 KO) was incredibly impressive in shutting down Liakhovich (25-5, 16 KO), sweeping the Bad Left Hook scorecard and only possibly losing one round along the way. He punctuated each round with a late flurry, but had won the rounds anyway. Over the fight, he battered Liakhovich's left eye, and bloodied his nose, hurting Liakhovich repeatedly and just dictating every moment of the fight.

For Jennings, 27, this was a real notice-serving fight. His January win on NBC Sports over Maurice Byarm was impressive, but this was a better class of opponent, and Liakhovich was there to fight, too. He didn't go out there and lay down or stop trying. He just couldn't do a thing with a superior fighter.

Jennings is still a ways off from contention, but interest in his career is real now. There are a few rising Americans in the heavyweight division, and he's officially joined the group, and just might be up near the top.
