Wach beats Oluokun; Jackson splits Young; Nielsen scores TKO

Phil Jay 15/03/2015

Heavyweight Mariusz Wach overcame Nigerian Gbenga Oluokun to make it three wins from three fights since the Pole served a suspension for testing positive for a banned substance.

The former world title challenger, who put up a spirited fight against Wladimir Klitschko in 2012, is yet to meet a live opponent since making his comeback and will need to step up his opposition in order to make another impact at the top.

Elsewhere in Toowoomba, Australia, Olympian Luke Jackson kept up his perfect record in the pro ranks by recording a split decision win over compatriot Will Young at Rumours International.

The 30 year-old, who goes by the nickname ‘Action’ Jackson, is now 8-0 since ditching the head guard in the aftermath of London 2012 after two of the judges scored in his favour 96-93 with the third seeing it 95-94 to Young.

In Denmark, Patrick Nielsen made an impressive start to his career at super middleweight in stopping once-beaten American George ‘Comanche Boy’ Tahdooahnippah on top billing at the Ballerup Arena in Copenhagen.

Nielsen, 23, was well on top throughout the contest before eventually taking out the Oklahoma fighter in the eighth round to improve his C.V to 24-1. The Danes solitary loss to Dmitry Chudinov is now firmly behind Nielsen as the Sauerland promoted boxer aims for a shot at a world title at 168lbs.
