Former two-division defending champions Badou Jack took on a technical catch-up at cruiserweight on the Tyson Jones card and beat the previously undefeated Blake McKernan on the way to a clear, one-sided, decisive win.
Jack (23-3-3, 13 KO’s) was clearly several levels above McKernan – and if you weren’t aware of it, the comment reminded you several times over eight rounds that there are levels – and dominated this fight from End at the beginning. But you have to pay a lot of respect to McKernan (13-1, 6 KO’s) for getting stuck in this fight and doing his best by throwing back the full eight rounds.
The 33-year-old McKernan from Sacramento really only fought at the club level before this game. He had a physical size advantage over 37-year-old Jack, who certainly isn’t a destructive puncher at the weight, but there was an obvious gap between them in terms of skill and ability. Jack just got a lot more of it, he’s been a world class fighter for years.
McKernan took some hard, clean shots of Jack, but he returned some as well. Not nearly as many, and not nearly enough to actually make this competitive, but he was harsh as hell and gave honest effort all the way.
Really good fight to start the PPV, very spirited by both, and both can fight. This was a late bump on the PPV card, but a good one.
Ortiz, 24, is a legitimate 130/135 prospect, has been on a number of CES cards in the northeast and looked really hot here. He took some shots of Segawa (13-3-1, 4 KO’s), a 29 year old Ugandan who now lives in Maryland because Segawa always comes to fight. Had seen him before; He was over 10 years old with Abraham Nova in 2018 and drew with Zhora Hamazaryan last January. He’s not a total pushover, a really good view tester.
Ortiz (14-0, 8 KO’s) is someone power promoters might want to check out. If you don’t want to sign directly, you might want to work out a co-promotional deal with CES. He’s a legitimate prospect, has some skills, and while he sure has levels, the gifts are there. Can he hold his own against tougher enemies? I think he’s someone worth finding out about. Keep an eye on him.
