Badou Jack nearly earned a win via disqualification when his short-notice opponent, Dervin Colina, continued to hold in the clinch. But in the fourth, he earned a TKO with three knockdowns due to a series of vicious body shots.
Originally scheduled to face Jean Pascal, Jack hoped to avenge a split decision loss to Pascal in 2019. But Pascal was ruled out of the fight when he tested positive for multiple performance-enhancers, leaving promoters scrambling for a replacement. Colina stepped up to the fight, and it was clear early on the fight that he was out of his league in the 10-round fight.
Admonished repeatedly for holding in the clinch, Molina was deducted two points from a clearly aggravated referee. He got no better support from his corner, who berated him between rounds for continuing to hold and avoid the fight.
Nothing, however, could save Molina from a series of punishing shots in the fourth. After his third official trip to the mat, Jack was declared the winner via TKO at the 2:57 mark of the round.
Below is a video of the stoppage.
