Colina was deducted a point for holding in both rounds two and three. Jack then dropped Colina three times in round four to end it. Time was 2:57. Jack was originally slated to challenge WBA light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal, but Pascal tested positive for three banned substances and was removed from the card.
Post Fight Interviews:
On the Jean Pacal rematch falling out…
“People can say it’s bad luck but this is all from God. And I just have to be patient. This is God’s plan.
“The game plan was just to outbox him. Everything else will come. Definitely, hit the body. He was a little soft in the body but give him respect. He came out on short notice. He was supposed to fight next week but this is a different level.
“My goal is to become a three-division world champion. I walk around very heavy. I’m about to be 38 this year and I don’t like to cut weight so I’ll get with my team and see what’s next.
“He was trying to hold a lot and survive. I fight better when I fight better opponents. I was a little sloppy. The world class fights are when I perform the best.”
