Michael Hunter escapes with a split draw in a bruising fight with Jerry Forrest

Heavyweight contender Michael Hunter caused fear in his Trillerverz 4 main event at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City on Thursday, having to settle a 10-round draw in a rematch with Jerry Forrest.

The scores are 96-94 Hunter, 96-94 Forrest, 95-95. Hunter launched Forrest in June 2014.

The big boys were busy in the opening bracket, Forrest (26-4-2, 20 KOs) slams into his opponent’s face while Hunter (20-1-2, 14 KOs) chooses to play matador against the bull of his enemies, clearly landing a greater variety of flush blows. Forrest got closer to his own shots in the second and third seasons, and Hunter got hit more than he expected and the bump on his face shows it. Forrest remained there and refused to disappear in the fourth season, and as a result, exchanges emerged from the crowd.

In the final minute of the fifth season, Forrest attacks the much-loved Hunter, leaving him on the defensive for the rest of the stanza. After appearing to throw in the corner between rounds, Hunter’s body language wasn’t good in the sixth round and although he made some of his best shots, his technique was sloppy. and Forrest undeterred in his march forward.

However, the fight was getting interesting and Hunter started to return to it in the seventh round, but towards the end of the round, Forrest resumed making harder shots, and he continued to control the action in Rounds eight and nine, elevating relationships under the eyes of both Hunters.

With both corners telling their fighters they needed the final round, Forrest and Hunter decided to go for it, and while Hunter had his moments, it was Forrest who ended up strong. rather, for the judges to make the final decision in a tough heavyweight clash.
