Eumir Marcial bucks three knockdowns, stops Isiah Hart


Eumir Marcial’s heart and chin were put to the test on Sunday morning (Manila time).

Last Olympics’ bronze medalist Marcial survived three early knockdowns before stunning Isiah Hart with a counter left in the fourth round to secure his second professional win at Virgin Hotels in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Marcial, who hiked his record to 2-0 and scored his first stoppage win, had to endure a first round knockdown coming off a straight right in the first round and, later on, a couple more in the second round.

Entering the fourth round, the native of Zamboanga City was down 29-26 on all cards.

That’s when Marcial fought back.

A counter left by Marcial stunned Hart that brought him to the corner at the 47-second mark of the first round. It was enough for referee Raul Caiz Jr. to stop the bout.

Hart suffered his third straight setback, going down to 6-3-1 with four knockouts.
