Bout Summary

A big right uppercut sent Collins stumbling back into the ropes in the final minute of Round 4. He was issued a standing eight-count. In round 10, what appeared to be a clean body shot caused Collins to turn his back and grab on the ropes. The referee, without mentioning a low blow, sent Jennings to the opposite corner, did not count, and allowed Collins a few seconds to recover before calling for "time in" and continuing the action.
