The first round belonged to Eashash as he managed to pierce Negi’s defences with lusty right straights. Negi recovered in the second round with well placed body blows.
Negi tried to claw back with an all out aggressive approach in the final three minutes and even though the boxers from Jordan looked exhausted, he had just enough in the tank to pull through for a split verdict.
