In the fifth round, Farmer landed another hard left hand to the ribs that badly buckled Tennyson (22-3, 18 KOs), 25, of Northern Ireland, but he stayed upright.
Because Farmer dismissed Tennyson with such ease and took no damage, there's a chance he will be back Dec. 15 on the undercard of the Canelo Alvarez-Rocky Fielding fight at New York's Madison Square Garden, according to Farmer co-promoters Lou DiBella and Eddie Hearn, who is also Fielding's promoter and will have slots on the Golden Boy Promotions card.
