Jarvis vs Paniamogan: Aussie Star Jarvis Stops Paniamogan In 4, Goes Back To Winning Ways
Australia’s Bona Fide star Tim Tszyu (21-0, 15 KOs) meets American Tony Harrison (29-3-1, 21 KOs) for the WBO Interim super welterweight title on Sunday, March 12 at the Qudos Bank Arena, Sydney Olympic Park, New South Wales, Australia. The winner is guaranteed a shot at Jermell Charlo‘s undisputed titles later this year.
But before that, No Limit’s newest signing Brock Jarvis (20-1, 18 KOs) debuted for the promotion against Marlon Paniamogan (11-2-1, 5 KOs) in front of a few hundred people at a warehouse in Sydney on Wednesday night. Jarvis hasn’t fought since his first-round KO defeat at the hands of domestic rival Liam Paro in the biggest fight of his career last October.
Since then, Jarvis has parted ways with Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing and signed a new deal with Aussie promotion No Limit, who secured the exclusive deal on Australia’s biggest sports platform ‘Foxtel’ making them the standout promotional outlet in a growing market.
Jarvis vs Paniamogan was advertised at 142-pounds but Jarvis tipped the scales over 144-pounds on Tuesday’s weigh-in, over four pounds heavier than he was against Paro and looks like another move up in weight classes for the 25-year-old who has boxed in about eight different divisions since turning pro, seemingly moving up every time he steps into the squared circle.
After an aggressive start in his defeat to Paro, Jarvis tried to come out more sensible in the first round against Paniamogan but he was caught big in the last few seconds with an overhand right and was on shaky legs; reminiscent of his US debut.
The Ozzie only knows one way and that is forward and that was exactly the approach in the second round as the fight became a slugfest with them both trading heavily. Paniamogan’s face began to swell up, with a broken jaw suspected going into the third.
Jarvis took control of the fight from here with the successes of Paniamogan more and more limited and the end was near. The Sydney native went to the body in the 4th round and finished the fight, going back to winning ways, moving to 21-1. The Australian is now in a position for big fights in 2023 but clear flaws in defence need to be worked on.
In the card opener, Jason Fawcett moved to 5-0 with a 59-55, 55-55 & 58-56 MD win over Isaias Sette (0-0-1) in their super welterweight contest.
Next up, Kanye Clark extended his record to 14-0 and scored his tenth knockout, a 4th-round KO of the year contender against Hunter Ioane (8-8).
Heavyweight Liam Talivaa, now 4-0, scored a 38-38, 40-36 & 39-37 decision win over Michael Seko (1-1) in another competitive fight in the co-feature.
