Jumakhonov v Jules


In the co-main event to Verdejo v Madera, featherweight prospect Martino “Titan” Jules (10-0, 2 KO’s) claimed a solid majority decision win over Aleem Jumakhonov (8-3-2, 4 KO’s) in a fun and competitive bout. The hard-fought win allowed Jules to keep his perfect record intact.

The fight began as a boxing match in the first round, then quickly morphed into a gritty phone-booth battle. When boxing, the action favored Jules. However, the in-close combat provided his antagonist his best chance at victory.

Titan technically was getting the better of the work, although he was exerting far too much energy. He threw every punch hard and constantly tried to push the slowly stalking Jumakhonov off of him. At the conclusion of the third round, Jules had a steadily bleeding nose. By the end of the fourth period, he was moving almost sluggishly. His opponent was the fresher of the two and was maintaining a slow, steady walk down whilst concentrating on delivering thudding shots to the body.

With the coming of the fifth, Jules resumed utilizing his feet to put some breathing room between himself and Jumakhonov. For the next three rounds, the Pennsylvanian native exercised more and more comfort circling, turning and moving away from his hard-charging opponent. While in this mode, Jules was able to continue landing well while muting a great deal of Jumakhonov’s offensive success.

Even though the American made the positive adjustments, Jumakhonov managed to continuously land a number of grimace-inducing body shots and might have even buzzed his foe toward the end of the sixth. Aleem Jumakhonov came out fast and hard in the final round, but ultimately it was too little too late, as two of the three judges viewed Martino Jules as the clear winner.
