MANILA, Philippines – Filipino Olympian Yumi Martial has recovered from three knockdowns at the Virginis Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday morning (Manila time) for a dramatic fourth round technical knockout victory over American Isaiah Hart.
Fighting for the first time since claiming the bronze medal at the Tokyo Olympics in July last year, Marseille began to fight to measure the skill of his evil enemy when he received a quick counter-right tag that flattened Jumboangeno on his back. .
The 26-year-old Marshall, however, got up quickly from the knockdown and immediately set foot on the gas paddle.
But Marcel was so keen to see him enjoy two more trips on the canvas in the second round, both of which blinded Hart’s right counter.
“He has shown great heart, intentional determination. He got up, returned to work, and dropped a few more bombs before fleeing. Overall, it was a great learning experience, “said Sean Gibbons, MP campaign president, who was on the ringside to support Tim Marshall.
On the third, Marseille followed Hart with a cautious gaze and in the fourth round stunned the American with a straight left at the temple.
Referee Raul Kayes, Jr. immediately took action to prevent Marshall from attacking the jerky New Jersey-based boxer.
The fourth is finished in 48 seconds. With the stoppage, Marshall (2-0, 1 knockout) avoided a bullet as he trailed by an equal 26-29 tile on the three-judge scorecard.
Marshall and his wife Princess are scheduled to return home this week, then travel to Thailand immediately to join the Philippine boxing team ready for next month’s Southeast Asian Games in Hanoi, Vietnam.
