Wach Wins WBC Baltic Heavyweight Title


Charles outlasts McDermott in thrilling co-feature

NEWARK, NEW JERSEY (FEBRUARY 19, 2011)—Saturday night at the Essex County Collage in Newark, NJ, Polish heavyweight Mariusz Wach took out Jonathan Haggler in just three rounds to win the WBC Baltic Heavyweight title that highlighted a seven bout card promoted by Prize Fight and Global Boxing.

After a “feel out” first round, Wach landed a big right hand that hurt Haggler.  The 6’7” Wach jumped on Haggler and after a big flurry of punches put Haggler on the canvas.  Haggler was clearly hurt and could not beat the count of referee Sparkle Lee and the fight was over at 1:22 of round three.

With the win, Wach not only raises he ledger to 24-0 with twelve knockouts but captures his first title in picking up the WBC Baltic crown.

In the co-feature, Osnel Charles won a six round unanimous decision over local favorite Danny McDermott in a lightweight war.

Charles landed pinpoint shots against the hard charging McDermott.  McDermott was very aggressive and that played right into Charles as the native of Atlantic City via Haiti landed some hard shots that facilitated many toe to toe exchanges.

McDermott got in some in some solid offense of his own but with the fight in the balance, McDermott was docked a point in round five for a headbutt and in round six Charles opened up a cut along the right eye of McDermott.

Charles won the fight by scores of 59-54; 59-53 and 57-56.

Other winners on the action packed card included: Wanzell Ellison; Rashad Bogar; Eddie Edmonds; Scotty Burrell and Rafael Jastrzebski
