Browne Blows Out Jack by Decision

Browne Blows Out Jack by Decision

Report: Damon Gonzalez/LatinBox Sports

Unbeaten light heavyweight Marcus Browne (23-0, 16 KOs) from Staten Island, N.Y. claimed the WBA interim and WBC silver titles with a twelve round unanimous decision over former two-division world champion Badou Jack (22-2-3, 13 KOs) on Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Jack was hindered by a massive gash in his forehead caused by a headbutt. It was all Browne as Jack was standing in front getting hit. Judges official scores 117-110, 116-111, 119-108.

BROWNE:

“He was a really tough competitor.  I had to stick to the game plan.  He thought he was going to take me to deep water and drown me, but I was in shape.  Teddy Atlas, you think you have the best light heavyweight? (Oleksandr) Gvozdyk, let’s go. “I just used my athletic ability and did what I do best, and that’s box the hell out of people. “He couldn’t find me before that (head butt). He couldn’t find me.  I was just too sharp, too slick, too anything.  He was coming with his head all night.  He kept coming with his head. “Like I said, I’m from Staten Island.  Teddy (Atlas) is from Staten Island.  He thinks he has the best light heavyweight?  Gary Stark has the best light heavyweight.  Lets go.”
