Tokyo Olympics middleweight bronze medalist Eumir Felix Marcial of the Philippines has to weather being sent to the canvas three times by his Peruvian foe Isiah Hart (6-3-1, 4KOs) before winning by TKO in the 4th round at the Virgin Hotels Las Vegas in Las Vegas, Nevada Saturday night (Sunday in Manila).
Marcial was down once in the first and twice in the second round before rallying to halt the power-punching Peruvian 47 seconds in the 4th.
Marcial now improves to 2-0 as a pro but his performance against Hart in the non-televised undercard of the Erickson Lubin vs Sebastian Fundora Showtime headliner may dampen his fans' expectations for a good run in the ultra-talented middleweight division.
