Advertiser Sampson Lewkowicz of Sampson Boxing applaud Virgin Islands slugger John Dah Rock Jackson (16-1, 14 KOs) for his striking nationwide televised win over previously unbeatable Sir Cerresso Fort.
Fighting in the eight-round co-main event last Friday (April 19) at the Tropicana Casino Resort in Atlantic City, and live universal on ESPN Friday Night Fights, Jackson was stronger and faster than the well-regarded Fort and won by recognized choice (77-75, 79-73 and 79-73).
WBC 15th rank Jackson was predictable to face a test against Fort (then 16-0-1, 11 KOs) but was simply a league above his game adversary. Jackson took Fort’s power with ease while carry world-class power shots in stunning combination. It was an imposing win for the 24-year-old son of former world winner Julian Jackson.
John was amazing,said Lewkowicz.He showed he is a class above even well-regarded prospects. Fort is a strong fighter and John was just too good for him. Even though he is a KO puncher, he took his time and picked Fort apart. That was a specialist move and it showed his true opposition character.
Lewkowicz says Jackson will be back soon in an even higher profile matchup.The next fight will hopefully be an ESPN main event against an excellence opponent that will showcase to the world that he is a future winner. And after that, I will be looking to the best cable channels like HBO to put him in a world-title fight. I consider it’s going to be a big year for John Jackson.
