IntuBoxing's Own Jamie Stewart Forces Draw Against Marku
It didnt take long for tonight's action to ignite. With some colourful language punctuating this evenings opener.
In this evening's opening contest welterweight Jamie Stewart battled out a draw against Albanian foe, Florian Marku. A result that drew the ire of the popular Marku, who chimed in the post-fight interview that the referee 'Didnt know S**T about boxing. Stealing a line direct from Roger Mayweather's playbook.
The fight could and perhaps should have gone Marku's way, and on another night with another referee scoring the bout, it might well have.
Marku threw the proverbial kitchen sink at Stewart, which saw his aggression rewarded with a knockout with a lovely body shot in the second round. However, whilst he lacked the power to hurt Marku, Stewart was always in the fight. By the fifth it seemed as though Marku had clean run out of ideas, which perhaps let the Impact Boxing man back into the fight.
In the post-fight interview Stewart claimed "He pressurised, no doubt. I boxed. He was in short bursts. He pressurised, I boxed."
