Frank Martin Drops and Stops Romero Duno In the Fourth round

Martin, who fights out of Indianapolis dropped Philippines Romero Duno twice in the space of four rounds, with the latter being, what prompted the stoppage at exactly 2:23 of the fourth round.

Pundits and Bookmarkers saw Martin walking into the toughest fight of his professional career but the Man Down Promotions fighter, spent the whole fight using a stick and move technique that totally ruled out the power that the more established Romero Duno brought to the ring. Martin thereby picked him apart gradually outlandish him with about 4 – 1 ratio.

Martin maintained his game plan throughout the four round duration despite the constant aggression by Romero, who most times failed to land a significant shot during an exchange. Martin would stick his jab on Romero’s face, then move immediately after a connection. When he wasn’t moving, he would use his head movement to dodge shots from the powerful Romero.

Martin wasn’t awarded a knockdown for a drop midway through round four but that didn’t deter him but Duno was the one who connected the biggest shot of the round with a big right connected to Martin’s chin while the latter dangled on the ropes.

That was a big shot but that wasn’t compared to what Duno was about to receive after. Martin sneaked a big right through Duno’s defence and knocking him senseless. Duno was wobbled to the right, but sent eventually to the canvas with a left. Duno was able to beat the count but was sent back to the canvas a minute later with another big shot. The referee had then seen enough and waved the fight off immediately.

Martin with the win remains unbeaten with 15-0 (11kos), while Duno 24-3 (19KOs) just watched his three fight winning streak get snapped. This was his first loss getting knockout by unbeaten titlist Ryan Garcia about two years ago.
