Marcus Browne moved his perfect record to 23-0 (16 knockouts) via scoring a unanimous decision victory over Badou Jack via scorecards from the judges reading 119-108, 117-110, 116-111.

The fight took place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas with Browne coming into the fight as a slight underdog on the betting lines and the general public unaware of what he had to offer just yet at the world class level.

He stepped up in style, as he outboxed Jack, the former super middleweight and light heavyweight champion, while bloodying his man from an accident clash of heads that did not Jacks poor night in the ring.

Browne fought a very solid, technical fight that had Jack perplexed on how to fully solve the riddle in front of him while also dealing with blood streaming down his face from the accidental clash of heads.

With the loss, Jacks record has fallen to 22-2-3 with 13 knockouts. Browne, on the other hand, is now suddenly in the mix for all the top guys in the division with his splash onto the scene, including of course the WBA World Light Heavyweight Champion Dmitry BIvol.
