John & Julius Jackson keep the KO’s coming

This past Saturday in a Sampson Boxing and Tello Box promoted show held at the La Boutique Stadium in Cordoba, Argentina, the group of U.S. Virgin Islands-based fighters known as “The Hawk’s Flock,” the sons and nephew of the legendary former world middleweight champion Julian “The Hawk” Jackson, surpassed all expectations and set a new record for boxing TV viewership ratings in Argentina.

Saturday’s show, which featured five interesting bouts, was topped by Julian’s son and WBC #6 super welterweight contender John “Da Rock” Jackson (18-1-15 KO’s) scoring an eighth-round stoppage victory over veteran Jorge “El Chino” Miranda (51-16- with 20 KO’s).

In the evening’s co-feature, Julian’s other son, WBC #6, WBA #14, and IBF #15-rated super middleweight Julius “The Chef” Jackson (17-0 13 KO’s) won the WBA FEDEBOL Super Middleweight Championship with a ninth-round stoppage of previously undefeated Nicolas Lopez (10-0-4 KO’s).

Not achieving the same results was nephew Samuel Rogers, who dropped a close 10-round decision to Carlos Adam “El Malevo” Jerez for the WBA FEDEBOL Middleweight Title.

All three Argentinean opponents are sparring mates of Argentine World Middleweight Champion Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez.
