July1, Melbourne, AUSTRALIA/New York
Star Boxing’s undefeated Super Middleweight Zac Dunn (22-0 18KO Melbourne, AU), made another huge statement, outclassing durable veteran Carlos Jerez (43-20-3) en route to a fifth round TKO at The Melbourne Pavilion, Flemington, Victoria, AU. Crocodile Dunn controlled the pace throughout the contest, until Jerez’ corner had seen enough at the conclusion of the fifth round today in Australia.
Dunn fired away with vicious body shots and combinations to the head and body round after round. Jerez, who went the distance with Saul (Canelo) Alvarez, Lucas Matthysse and John Jackson, was absorbing tremendous punishment and firing back. Dunn’s assault continued, his left hook was noticeably landing and slowing his opponent down. By the fifth round, the writing was on the wall.
Promoter Joe DeGuardia had this to say about Dunn’s performance “Impressive! Dunn barreled through a tough competitor like Jerez who has been the distance with some of the best. It says something that he couldn’t stay in there with Dynamo Dunn. He’s a dominant force and it’s time for us to start looking for the big names in the division. He’s ready to take on anyone at 168”
Dunn is currently rated in all 4 sanctioning bodies, #9 IBF and WBO, #8 WBC, and #14 WBA and last year won the IBO World Title.
