In the main event of the boxing evening in Atlantic City, Bryant Jennings (24-2, 14 KOs) stopped in the ninth round Alexander Dimitrenko (41-3, 26 KOs). In the fourth round, the American, however, himself was on the floor. An unexpected turn mobilized Jennings to work more, and he recorded two knockdowns in the eighth and one in the ninth, and the referee decided to stop the meeting at 1:56.

Promoter Erol Ceylan has announced that Alexander “Sascha” Dimitrenko (38-3, 24 KOs) is the new opponent for unbeaten heavyweight Adrian Granat (14-0, 13 KOs) on March 18 in Malmö, Sweden. Granat was originally slated to face little-known Bogdan Dinu (16-0, 12 KOs). Although coming off a KO loss to current WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker in October, Dimitrenko figures to be a tougher opponent.
