HBO boxing results: Bryant Jennings outclasses and stops Artur Szpilka

HBO/Ed Mulholland

Artur Szpilka made a name with heavyweight action on ESPN Friday Night Fights, but found himself outclassed tonight by Philadelphia's Bryant Jennings.

In a battle of unbeaten heavyweight prospects, it was 29-year-old American Bryant Jennings who left with his "0," improving to 18-0 (10 KO) with a final round stoppage of Poland's 24-year-old Artur Szpilka (16-1, 12 KO) tonight on HBO in New York City.

Jennings, a Philadelphia native, was a bit tentative early, and after four rounds, the two fighters appeared about even. But Jennings had a clear edge in hand speed and athleticism, able to move himself into the positions he wanted more easily than could Szpilka.

In the sixth round, Szpilka was dumped to the canvas, managing to survive the frame. To start the seventh, Jennings came out guns blazing, missing a chance at a KO, but kept plugging away. From round five on, it was pretty much all Bryant Jennings, and he got the stoppage in the 10th and final round to move closer to a potential world title shot, perhaps even against Wladimir Klitschko.
