EUMIR Marcial beat Czech boxer Milos Bartl via referee-stopped-contest in the Europe vs. Asia Boxing tournament at the Prague Hilton on Saturday.
Marcial dropped Bartl twice in the match, the second a left-right combination that forced referee Tomas Smid to stop the fight.
The middleweight fighter from Zamboanga was given a trophy made of crystal and glass in the dual meet featuring fighters from Thailand, France, Czech Republic, Jordan, Romania, Mongolia, Armenia and Iraq.
“I'm still not in top condition coming off the Christmas break. I also hardly had any sparring sessions since there is no one else in the team in my weight division,” said Marcial.
